Shoes were jointly designed by Lapo Elkann and fashion company Italia Independent.

Garage Italia Customs has unveiled a unique Alfa Romeo 4C that draws inspiration from Adidas' Football Deadly Focus Pack.

While it might sound odd to design a car based on footwear, these particular shoes were created by Garage Italia Customs founder Lapo Elkann and fashion company Italia Independent. As a result, the car has an animal-inspired wrap that mimics the pattern used on the limited edition X15 and Ace 16 football shoes that are included in the Deadly Focus Pack.

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C was introduced earlier this year and it features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, a composite body, and 17-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero AR tires.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.  That doesn't sound like much by today's standards but the car only weighs 2,465 pounds.  Thanks to the combination of lightweight construction and a "blistering fast" twin-clutch transmission, the 4C can accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds before hitting a top speed of 160 mph.

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C is priced from $55,900 while the 4C Spider retails for $65,900.
