Cas, what is the length of the wing? ie 1600mm?
The little 4C's are quite wide so it doesn't look particularly big

I've been looking at quite a few, prefer the style which either goes straight across with winglets / stops on them or the swan neck style, similar to the Kansai ones.

Nice to see a rear wing on it though as not many have done it, carbon is the obvious choice too.
Will have to measure it tomorrow I’m unsure it pretty much goes arch to arch tho so the cars width minus maybe 10mm each side

Went for a rip in the mountains for the first time in the 4C (Blood Mountain, Wolf Pen Gap, Richard B Russell Scenic).

This is where the car absolutely shines the most during the course of my ownership. It feels right at home tackling narrow switchbacks with sudden camber changes. One of the most visceral driving experiences with the manual steering (I still dislike the dead on-center feel), and I wasn't missing a third pedal since the car is just that fast for my current abilities + road conditions.

I genuinely feel sorry for anyone that owns this car without a nearby touge. :whistle:

(About to Rip)

I've nearly finished making this for the rear cup holder. It started life as some aluminium guttering brackets which I melted down and then recast as this cap. It's sitting on a small 3D printed insertthat helps to keep it in place in the cup holder. The cap still needs a bit more sanding and then will be finished off with a clear lacquer spray. I'm doing something a little different for the forward cup holder - I'm just waiting for the 3D printer to finish the last bit. (I don't use the holders for drinks - mostly loose change.)

Someone asked me if it was the Alfa 1C today whilst sat at the lights, I said “it’s the 4C as in 4cylinders, wouldn’t sound like this with 1cylinder“ as I put my foot down and did a huge fart Into second.

You can get lucky. Sometimes you get charged, sometimes you don’t. It seems to be a lottery. Maybe we have an Alfista working in the Tax office?
Let us know how the Federals go.
