you know that only how it looks under hyper bright show lights... also the photogs settings play a factor... was he looking to play up the metallic bitS??

this one offers a good look at it in direct and not so direct light...

I think that there is a bit too much sparkle going on. I like it to be more metallic shiny than glittery.
That could just be due to the intensity of the lighting at the show, Seeing it in person will give you a better idea of what to expect if you were to own one.

MT has some good photos of Granite... I wonder if its a glass flake under there... the depth and sheen are IMPECCABLE!

Looking at the following picture i'm starting to think i might need a small spacer to push the rear wheels out a bit, maybe even the front for a bit more of a flush look :D

You never know, it might already have spacers. I know Porsche has a habit of using wheel spacers from the factory.

I wouldn't put it past Alfa, this platform is supposed to have more pedestrian uses, I could see them using spacers to get the desired track instead of making significant structural revisions...

Valid point about track since it's much easier to use spacers than it is to design things around building up to what is ideal which can way too specific, costly and time consuming.

Regardless, I think the gap you were seeing above is because the wheel is ever so slightly turned, leaving the illusion of space... IMO...
