Coachbuilders can sometimes do wonders as the car you see here, known officially as the Alfa Romeo Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001, started life as an Alfa Romeo 4C.
Its transformation into supercar looks begins with its bespoke bodywork, which is a fusion of Alfa Romeo’s current design language with evocative supercar lines. There are also distinctive features such as the louvered rear windscreen and Zagato-inspired rear end for extra drama, along with a matching line of bags for the car.
The one-off 001 appears to be wider than the 4C on which it is based, giving the car an impressive stance.
Mole has also updated the interior, although it’s a little less successful compared to the exterior makeover. While the dashboard is now covered in leather, the aluminium trim on the air vents and HVAC controls look rather plasticky and cheap.
The coachbuilder hasn’t released any technical details on the Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001, but the regular Alfa Romeo 4C is motivated by a 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine churning out 176kW and 349Nm of torque, enough to propel the sports coupe from 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds en route to a top speed of 257km/h.
