A fully camouflaged prototype of the Alfa Romeo 4C Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) has been spied undergoing testing.

While the rear license plate might put a smile on your face, the prototype spotted here it's no joke as all signs point to a hotter version of the Alfa Romeo 4C which will likely receive the "Quadrifoglio Verde" or "Stradale" moniker.

Featuring a more aggressive body, the lightweight Italian two-seater will get air intakes in front of the rear wheels along with additional air intakes in the front bumper’s left & right corners. There’s also a new side skirt design, remodeled bumpers, different exhaust tips, extra cooling slots near the round taillights, fresh ten-spoke alloy wheels.

The beefier body will be matched with a slightly more powerful engine as the four-cylinder 1.75-liter turbocharged gasoline engine will likely be upgraded from the current 240 HP (176 kW) to approximately 270 HP (198 kW).

The Alfa Romeo 4C QV could be introduced at next year's Geneva Motor Show set for early March.
