Alfa Romeo Spider gets new lease of life from Vilner image

Tuning specialist Vilner has decided to do its latest aftermarket wizardry on a 2010 Alfa Romeo Spider, giving the roadster a new lease of life thanks to the newly customized cabin.

The project has also received an Italian-inspired denomination as it is the custom whenever an Italian car is involved – Vilner called its work “Fibra de Carbono Rosso”, which is a not so subtle hint to the fact that its dominant color choice was red and the highlight material was… carbon fiber. As such, we have a menacing number of red carbon fiber inserts across the cockpit – and Vilner topped it all with a reshaped steering wheel with a bezel at the bottom to increase sportiness and ergonomics. We also have lots of red leather with white stitching and some spicy Kevlar inserts for good measure. The seatbelts were also touched with a cherry purple red finish to compliment the cherry blossom red leather upholstery. The passenger seat is oddly treated differently – black leather look that is also mirrored by its door panel.

Outside the intense cabin project, Vilner has also adopted a Milano Rosso paint scheme that matches the hue found on the current miTo. There are also some nice black lacquer touches on the door handles, side turn signals, headlight rings, and between the taillights. We’re betting this is client inspired project since the engine under the hood is a quirky choice for a roadster – the 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel which has been mildly massaged to deliver 250 horsepower (186 kW) and 310 pound-feet (420 Nm) of torque to the wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
