The British journalist Chris Harris took the new Alfa Romeo 4C for a spin on road and track. 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 fiber 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 weight.
The compact dimensions make this car with 2 bucket seats truly unique amid its competitors: it is just under 4 meters long, 200 cm wide, 118 cm high and with a wheelbase of less than 2.4 meters. 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 aluminum block and specific intake and exhaust systems.
The 1750 Turbo Petrol engine is teamed with the innovative Alfa TCT automatic twin dry clutch transmission.
