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.
