The final version of the Alfa Romeo 4C makes its début at the
83rd International Motor Show in Geneva. The Alfa Romeo 4C
derives directly from the concept which raised many eyebrows in
wonder at the Geneva Show in 2011.

Designed by Alfa Romeo engineers and produced in the Maserati
plant in Modena, the new compact supercar will be available for
purchase in 2013, marking the return of the Italian brand to the
United States and inaugurating Alfa Romeo’s global growth plan.

Designed by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, the 4C immediately
brings to mind some of the traditional iconic models which have
left a significant mark in the history of the Brand. Above all
others, in terms of dimensional and layout similarities, one
stands out in particular: the 33 Stradale.

As for the interior, the carbon fibre immediately stands out,
used to make the central cell, which has been left in full view
to enhance the sense of uniqueness, of technology and light
The compact dimensions make this car with 2 bucket seats truly
unique amid its competitors: it is just under 4 metres long, 200
cm wide, 118 cm high and with a wheelbase of less than 2.4
What’s more, the car
achieves maximum aerodynamic efficiency levels.
An evolution of the engine already in use in the Quadrifoglio
Verde version of the Giulietta, the new 4 cylinder 1750 Turbo
Petrol engine implements an innovative aluminium block and
specific intake and exhaust systems.

The 1750 Turbo Petrol engine
is teamed with the innovative Alfa TCT automatic twin dry clutch
