At the Geneva Motor Show, Alfa Romeo showed everyone one of the seven hand-built Disco Volante Spiders. The vehicle is a carbon fiber masterpiece, featuring a front-bumper, side skirts, hood, grill, trunk, windshield frame, and convertible top all made from the super-light material. The car weighs in at 3,700 lbs., which seems a little hefty considering all the light material used, but is still far from being considered “heavy.”

The vehicle features a 4.7 liter V8 engine, and churns out 450 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. The Spider is said to be able to max out at 181 miles per hour and can shoot to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds.

The vehicle also features 20-inch aluminum wheels, wrapped in Pirelli PZero rubber. The Disco Volante Spider certainly seems like a very exciting vehicle, and it will be interesting to see who is able to get their hands on one and what the price will be.
