Even though previous reports mentioned the fact that the Italians from Alfa Romeo will bring a new version of the 4C Concept at this year’s IAA Show, the Milano based company announced that the only true difference between the Frankfurt bound concept and the car seen in Geneva last March will be its Fluid Metal exterior colour.
Expected to go on sale in 2013, the 4C Concept represents an ambassador for the DNA Technology, and once the greenline for production will be given, the car will feature numerous technological elements that will underline its compact supercar abilities and will distinguish it as a true Alfa Romeo.
With power extracted from a 200 HP TBi 1750 turbo petrol engine, the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept is expected to reach a top speed of over 250 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in less than 5 seconds.
The car measures almost 4 m in length (wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres), and its chassis, which is made from carbon fiber and aluminium is responsible for a total weight of 850 Kg and a power to weight ratio of 4Kg/HP.
The 4C’s masses are distributed 40 percent to the front and 60 percent to the rear.
