Alfa Romeo has unveiled the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo, inspired by the legendary 1967 33 Stradale, the brand’s legendary mid-engine sports car.
Limited to just 33 units for North America, the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo comes exclusively in Rosso Villa d’Este tri-coat exterior color, with gray-gold 5-hole alloy wheels (18-inch front/19-inch rear).
Inside, the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo features composite sport seats covered in black Dinamica suede and tobacco leather, as well as dedicated plaques on the dash, side sills and center console, the last of which is progressively numbered.
“Since its introduction in 2014, the 4C has been a halo vehicle for Alfa Romeo, exciting enthusiasts around the world and spearheading the relaunch of the brand in North America,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo.
“The 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is an instant Alfa Romeo classic that passes the torch to the next generation of iconic Alfa Romeo vehicles, including the upcoming Tonale PHEV crossover that will start production next year.”
Customers also get treated to a matching, numbered book designed by Centro Stile (Design Center) that chronicles the 4C’s design concept, technology, materials and Modena assembly facility as well as the history of the 33 Stradale.
The 4C’s racing pedigree is evident in its state-of-the-art Formula One-inspired carbon fiber monocoque chassis, presented for the first time in a red transparent finish.
Further, much of the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo’s equipment, previously optional, comes standard, including an Akrapovic dual-mode center-mounted exhaust, race-tuned suspension, bi-xenon headlamps, battery charger, car cover, suede/leather seats and carbon fiber halo, rear wing and Italian flag mirror caps.
A similarly specified 4C Spider would carry an MSRP of thousands more. Completing the refined exterior treatment are new “Centro Stile Alfa Romeo” badges and available piano-black front air intake and rear diffuser.
