Alfa Romeo 4C: now in silver

Stunning concept makes its way to Frankfurt show in Terminator hue…

This is the new Alfa Romeo 4C concept. And by new, we actually mean Exactly The Same But With A Shiny New Colour.

First unveiled in March, Alfa Romeo quietly stole the Geneva motor show with the two-seat, mid-engined rear-wheel-drive concept. It made petrolhead brains even more gooey when announcing it would actually go on sale in 2012.

Well, Alfa likes it so much it's bringing the 4C to Frankfurt with a shiny new paint job. A paint job inspired, seemingly, by the duplicitous, murderous and insanely terrifying T-1000 from 1992 blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Heck, it's even called ‘fluid metal'.

Other than that, it's the same as before. A 200bhp 1.7-litre turbocharged petrol four-pot sits in the middle of that 850kg body, together with a twin-clutch transmission and Alfa's DNA dynamic control selector. 0-62mph will take less than five and top speed is over 155mph.

Have a click through the pics. Then cower under your desk and pray you don't give birth to the leader of the resistance.

Prefer it in red?
