Jump to Images

Vilner focused on a number of styling and finish changes for their Alfa Romeo Spider project dubbed the Fibra de Carbono Rosso.

The exterior of the car is painted in Vilner Milano Rosso, with a black lacquer connection between the taillights, as well as black rings around the headlights.

In the interior, the Bulgarian firm created a colored carbon fiber/Kevlar composite, and used it extensively throughout the interior, including the center console, parts of the dashboard, and inner door handles. It also found its way onto the steering wheel, which has been modified with a bezel on the lower section and wrapped in leather.

The seats have been done in cherry blossom red leather, and differ in design, with the passenger seat utilizing a mix of black and red leather. The interior section of the seats is made from 3D net, a porous material which allows the passenger to keep cool in hot weather with the top down. The seatbelts are cherry purple red.

(from Vilner Press Release) Fibra dе Carbono Rosso. Alfa Spider specially treated by Vilner

Alfa Spider. Pure art on wheels. Vilner wanted to create a design masterpiece which is in perfect harmony with the character of the car. The name of the project? Fibra de Carbono Rosso.

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.

Outside, there is a new color called Vilner Milano Rosso, which was developed by the studio for the personalized Alfa Romeo MiTo 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.
