Alfa’s new 4C coupe will benefit from yearly updates, according to reports out of the UK this week, and an even more hardcore version may yet follow.

Speaking with Top Gear in the UK, Alfa Romeo marketing boss Alberto Cavaggioni said the carmaker set out from the beginning to introduce compelling enhancements each year.

“The first update that you saw was the most important one and that’s the one you saw at Geneva this year. The Spider. We were very keen to make sure we were in a good position to present this car,” Cavaggioni said.

He added that buyer interest in the 4C Spider has been very positive, moving the company to push for an early 2015 launch.

As for what the updates will bring, Cavaggioni offered little.

But, given the spartan feature set of the 4C as it currently stands, we could potentially see a few more creature comforts offered in a special version that focuses more on luxury than performance.

It was also revealed this month that the 4C Coupe will be offered with a choice of headlights: its existing bug-eye design, or the more conventional units featured on the 4C Spider.

Cavaggioni said the 4C will stay in production for around four to five years, meaning the final examples could roll out in 2018 - seven years since the 4C first appeared as a concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

Before then, though, we may also see a significantly more intense Quadrifoglio Verde version of the 4C, although it is unclear if this would be a roadgoing model or a track-only proposition.

“I cannot tell you too much at the moment, but we’re working very hard to make sure the DNA of the brand will continue. We know many people and customers are asking for this kind of thing, and we look into them so we’ll see," Cavaggioni said.
