Did you know that the Alfa Romeo 4C was presented as a design study at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2011? It's hard to believe that the design has been around for almost 6 years. With 177 kW (241 hp) at 6000 min. and an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in just 4,5 seconds, the 4C gets the most out of its relatively low performance. Only in terms of design can you still lend a hand here and there in my opinion. As you know, a little bit of tuning has never hurt. And what first thought comes to mind when you dive into tuning? For the masses, including myself, there is the sporty, sound-rich exhaust, the lowered chassis and of course a significantly increased performance (Chiptuning etc.) are high on the list of priorities. Tuning also means that the vehicle should receive a highly personal touch. The viewing angle of each individual vehicle owner is just as individual. Although statistics are mostly incidental, they should not be underestimated. After all, we are talking here of 60% of all Tuningbegeisterten who first granted their car a new set of wheels and later dealt with the further measures such as chip tuning, etc. In comparison, the dimensions of the replaced rims are at least 1 inches above the sizes of the factory-original rims.
F520 rims & lowering
The often extremely price-intensive investment hardly leaves any deterrent marks because it actually pays off in retrospect and the design of the car is then presented in a remarkably new luster. The decisive factor for the highly frequented exchange of wheel sets is likely to be, among other things, the suitability for the masses of the standard rims, which are often presentable. However, the manufacturer orients itself more towards the large target groups and less towards the individualists. On top of that, the rim selection is made using the manufacturer's configurator, which of course was also the case with this black Alfa Romeo 4C. If you put your vehicle together using a configurator, there is ultimately hardly any space for a distinctive uniqueness. However, there is still a possibility to swim against the current and to be able to detach yourself from the general public. The plan B of the owner of the 4C includes a look at the range of Avant Garde Wheels. Thanks to the perfect combination, the piece of jewelery is now presented even better with an Avant Garde Wheels wheel set of the type F520 SPEC3 in matt black. The additional modifications recognizable in the pictures make the production model an impressive eye-catcher. Of course, the 4C also owes the newly gained dynamism and the even sportier driving experience to the F520 wheelset. No wonder, because the rims from Avant Garde Wheels are not only known in tuner circles for their first-class quality and, above all, for an exquisite range of products. With these respectable alternatives, the standard wheelsets are quickly overshadowed by the new rims. Further information on tuning measures carried out on the chic coupe can only be found in the photos and what the tuner has published.
