See the Alfa Romeo 4C compact sports car hit the racetrack

But are these photoshopped images?

In March this year, Alfa Romeo unveiled the 4C compact, mid-engined and rear-wheel-drive sports car at the Geneva Motor Show. Since then, we have seen nothing but static (and heavily edited) shots of the car--until now. The Italian carmaker has just released a bunch of photographs showing the 4C doing hot laps around a racetrack.

Now, we don\'t know if the 4C is really out-of-this-world gorgeous--it has won several design awards, after all--or these images are edited. Are they even computer-generated, perhaps? The car appears to float in these photos, as though consigning whatever background it is shot against to a role of insignificance and obscurity.

The 4C, which is powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cyclinder gasoline engine rated at 240hp and 350Nm, will be made available at Alfa Romeo dealerships in Europe starting next month. The company is giving the new car an annual production volume of 3,500 units.

But back to the question: Are these pictures photoshopped, or is the Alfa Romeo 4C simply too beautiful for two-dimensional rendition?
