Meet Vilner’s Exclusive “Fibra de Carbono Rosso” Based on Alfa Romeo Spider
Alfa Spider "Fibra dе Carbono Rosso" is a project by the exclusive Bulgarian art tuning studio Vilner based on the Alfa Romeo Spider, produced in 2010. This particular car has a stunning performance enhanced by chip tuning and offering 250 horsepower (184 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. It definitely promises incomparable experience which had to be matched in terms of visuals. And this was the main goal of the tuning specialists: to create a design masterpiece which is in perfect harmony with the untamed character of the car.
To achieve the set goal, the experts had to choose the perfect exterior color. And we must admit that for this fast Italian car there is nothing better than a red. But it is not a simple red one, but a special color called Vilner Milano Rosso, which was developed by the studio for the personalized Alfa-Romeo MiTo that we have showed you some time ago.
The changes continue with detailed application of black lacquer, "black connection" between the taillights and black rings around the headlights. By the way the niches that house the headlights have been too painted in Milano Rosso. At last, the tarry alloys, door handles and blinkers round out the modifications on the outside. The result is fantastic and perfectly expresses the aggressive and sporty character of the Alfa Romeo Spider.
Since this is a cabriolet, the interior is an integral part of the design. Therefore Vilner could not indulge in not making the cabin a statement of art. First, the specialists created a special carbon composite, which seems to pervade the color of the exterior surfaces. The carbon fibers here have been mixed with Kevlar, and this combination is found applied on many of the cockpit's details.
Precisely, the appliqués on the center console and the steering wheel, the door handles are molded from carbon fiber. The steering wheel itself has been entirely transformed. Its entire shape has been changed and now includes a bezel at the bottom, giving it more ergonomic grip. Furthermore, it has been upholstered in leather, contrasted by white stitching and the carbon fiber-Kevlar mix on its appliqués has the same 45-degree angle as these on the composite of the center console.
Continuing to the seat belts, they have been dressed in cherry purple red. This is not aimlessly done, but almost mimics the color of the individualized seats. Almost… because the design of the seats makes a mirror effect. Precisely, the elements on the right are made cherry blossom red leather, while on the left - of black material. The same approach has been used for the door panels.
At last, there is a particular detail on the seats of the Fibra de Carbono Rosso. Their central part features the so called 3D net – a special material, which underlines the sporty appearance of the seat, but also includes a porous structure, providing the necessary ventilation during the hot summer days.
