Will be shown at the “Piston Head II: Artists Engage The Automobile” exhibition in Los Angeles
Garage Italia Customs has unveiled a unique Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe called the Hokusai.
Set to debut at the “Piston Head II: Artists Engage The Automobile” exhibition in Los Angeles later this month, the one-off model is billed as a celebration of Japanese and Italian cultures. As part of this mashup, the best-known Japanese work in the world - The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai - was air-brushed by hand on the car's bodywork. Garage Italia Customs says the design "immediately recalls the greatness and strength of nature, contrasting the frailty of mankind which is represented by the fishing boats."
The car has also been equipped with a unique interior which features Kurabo denim upholstery with cream Foglizzo leather inserts. Drivers will also find white contrast stitching as well as white accents on the dashboard and air vents.
In a statement, Garage Italia Customs founder Lapo Elkann said “I am happy that Garage Italia Customs and its creations have a role in Venus' exhibition alongside world-class artists. Adam Lindemann and I share a passion for the incredible artistry, beauty, and power of the automobile."
Besides introducing the Alfa Romeo 4C Hokusai, Garage Italia Customs will showcase the BMW i8 Futurism Edition which was originally unveiled in May. It pays tribute to BMW's 50th anniversary in Italy and features unique styling inside and out.
