Get An Up-Close Look At This Coachbuilt Alfa Romeo 4C Reimagination

The incredible one-off, 4C-based 'Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001' has been filmed at an event in Turin

Remind me later

Just in case you were worried that the incredible one-off, coach-built Alfa Romeo 4C we saw last week was merely a very very good render, here’s some video footage of the beast.

Called the ‘Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001’, it’s the work of Umberto Palermo Design and Adler Group. Its striking aesthetic looks to be incorporating various elements from cars like the Giulia and Stelvio, and the results are very pleasing indeed.

As far as we know, it’s mechanically identical to the 4C. That means the 001 is powered by a mid-mounted 1.75-litre inline-four turbo, pushing 236bhp to the rear wheel exclusively via a dual-clutch transmission. Assuming the weight isn’t significantly different to the donor car, it’ll be good for a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds.

The car was filmed at the Parco Valentino Salone Auto in Turin at the weekend, where it no doubt turned many heads. On the move, we’d argue looks even more visually arresting. We might just be in love…
