Alfa-Romeo-4C-1

Earlier today, Alfa Romeo revealed the production version of the 4C (2014), which is going to have its world debut at the 2013 Geneva auto show next month. The new Alfa Romeo 4C (2014) measure less than 4 meters in length, 200 cm in width, and 118 in height and it has a 2.4 meters wheelbase. To power the 4C, Alfa Romeo uses the 4-cylinder 1750 turbocharged petrol engine with direct injection. Alfa Romeo did not disclose the output of this new engine, however, they do mention that the 4C has a power-to-weight ratio of 4 kg/hp. Its engine is mated to a TCT automatic twin dry clutch transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration time of the Alfa 4C and its top speed will be announced at a later date. The Alfa 4C is rear-wheel-drive, obviously, and it’s made from carbon fiber and aluminum in order to keep its weight to a minimum.

The exterior design of the Alfa 4C is inspired by the 33 Stradale, but follows the general design lines of the much newer 8C. Alfa Romeo spent a lot of time wind the wind tunnel when developing the aerodynamics of the 4C. As a result, the car comes with a negative Cz (downforce coefficient).

As you’re expecting, the interior of the 4C is full of carbon fiber. The car offers four different setups for the engine, and suspension systems: Dynamic, Natural, All Weather and Race.

The price will be announced at a later date.
