Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and Spider

If there’s one thing Alfa Romeo has learned from years of victory on the racetracks,
it’s that balance is key. A mid-engine layout, rear-wheel drive and monocoque chassis
give each 4C model near-ideal weight distribution, with amazing handling and control.The Alfa Romeo 4C and 4C Spider make the most of this configuration with innovative technology and new levels of efficiency.

Their mid-engine-mounted 1750 cc in-line powerplant churns out some impressive numbers. The 4C boasts 237 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque, 136 hp per liter and a blazing top speed of 160 mph.  A quick look reveals an all-aluminum design with 4 valves per cylinder, a new-generation turbocharger, ultra-high-pressure direct fuel injection and a dual-core intercooler that cools intake air before it reaches the turbocharger.

A quick spin reveals an exhilarating 0 – 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds1* — andlarge, cross-drilled, ventilated brakes take it from 60 – 0 in under 100 feet.This groundbreaking engine, coupled with a vehicle curb weight under 2500 pounds, means Alfa Romeo 4C will accelerate as quickly as cars boasting higher horsepower — yet will corner sharper, brake harder, turn in quicker and respond more readily. Staggered tires (available 18-inch front, 19-inch rear) on forgedwheels offer the confidence of maximum grip.It’s all about feel and greater driver involvement — which is why you won’t find powersteering on any 4C.

Unassisted steering provides the driver with the highest-quality feedback — there is perhaps no greater connection to the road.True aficionados know the distinctive Alfa Romeo 4C exhaust note. Each model skips the muffler and offers a signature “gargle” at idle and a formidable roar when the
throttle is wide open. It’s a reminder that Alfa Romeo performance cares as much about the driver’s senses as it does about statistics.

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider available in Columbus, Ohio

This is open-air performance like nothing you’ve experienced. The top-down Alfa Romeo 4C Spider introduces a few more elements to the 4C thrill-ride like wind, sun and some gleaming carbon fiber touches. Thanks to the rigid 4C chassis, few structural modifications were needed to unveil the sky above; a carbon fiber windshield surround and carbon fiber halo complement the ultra-light carbon fiber monocoque chassis.

 The 4C Spider shares the 4C Coupe’s awe-inspiring mid-engine-mounted 1750 cc direct-injection, turbocharged power-plant with 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque delivering 0-60 mph in the low 4-second range.  And, since the 4C Spider weighs but 22 pounds more than the 4C Coupe, the responses are similarly sharp and quick.

The available center-mounted exhaust with carbon fiber surround produces the same, distinctive Alfa Romeo 4C exhaust note – made even sweeter while riding with the top down. It’s an unfiltered recital that is pure music to our driver’s ears.

 The rich interior details include an exposed carbon fiber monocoque chassis, premium leather instrument panel with accent stitching, unique carbon fiber-trimmed vents, and your choice of seating in Tobacco leather trim, Red leather trim, Black leather trim or Black leather/microfiber, with contrasting stitching available in Red or Yellow.

Designed exclusively for the 4C Spider, the soft top can be easily removed, folded and stowed in a dedicated case in the trunk. An available carbon fiber hard top further adds to the seduction. Personalize your 4C Spider with a choice of seven scene-stealing exterior colors – including the exclusive new Yellow, six wheel choices and four brake caliper colors.
