The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is getting its finishing touches and is rumored to bow at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The Italian automaker has kept quiet about the convertible variant for its 4C sports car, which has been long rumored to be in development. Expect the 4C Spider to be nearly identical to its coupe counterpart, sporting a removable roof panel likely made out of carbon fiber. Inside, the 4C spider will sport a pair of bucket seats along with a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a configurable TFT screen that replaces the instrument cluster.

    Beautiful car but NOT a "Spider" as only cars with soft rooves with the "spider" leg formation of bars and links etc. are called "spider" because the apparatus looks like spider's legs when seen not attached to the canvas roof. smh
