Several years ago, the Italian sports brand wanted to release a high-performance version of the 4C model, but something went wrong, and the car project remained in the status of the project. The Heritage HUB Museum has two prototypes of the Alfa Romeo 4C Quadrifoglio.

Back in the summer of 2014, journalists from the overseas edition of Car and Driver first reported that the Italian company Alfa Romeo could release a hardcore version of Quadrifoglio for its 4C model. The head of the research and development department of the Italian-American concern FCA (which includes the Italian brand), Harald Wester noted that the car “will receive only 136 horsepower per liter and it will be a powerful car.”

But after such a statement, the “charged” version of the model was never presented.

To this day, the Italian-American company has an impressive collection of vintage serial and concept cars of all its brands – there is even a whole museum of such cars, it is called the Heritage HUB. A new 20-minute video tells about some cars from this collection in which there is not one, but two prototypes of the aforementioned Alfa Romeo 4C performed by Quadrifoglio.

Be sure to rewind to the 10-minute time mark – this is about the moment when two cars appear simultaneously in the frame. One red and one white, both with aggressive exteriors compared to the conventional 4C – a carbon splitter for the front bumper and a new diffuser for the rear, as well as a massive adjustable fender at the back. On the hood and front fenders there are additional air holes.

 We do not know what lies beneath their hoods, but it is safe to assume that the cars are equipped with modernized 1.75-liter 4-cylinder engines with a power exceeding the standard 237 horsepower.
