Buyers of Alfa Romeo's new 4C coupe may now have a choice of headlight designs, according to reports in the UK this week.
The coupe first appeared as a concept at the 2011 Geneva show, and while much of its classic styling carried over to production, the lens-covered headlights were swapped for exposed carbon-fibre units.
Later, at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the new 4C Spider appeared. Alfa had cut the coupe's roof off, but more, lensed headlights had returned.
Now, the UK's Autocar reports that the new headlights will be offered as an option buyers of the 4C coupe, allowing them to choose between the 'regular' bug-eyed units and the new/old lensed design.
But there's a twist: buy the 4C Spider, and you won't get a choice at all.
"The Spider will only be offered with its standard lights, however", an unnamed Alfa spokesperson told Autocar.
Which would you go for, exposed carbon-fibre bug eyes, or the conventional lens-covered units?
(We'd reckon a set of bug eyes would go better on anything with the name 'Spider'... - Ed.)
