Pictures of legendary sports cars, glorious and victorious. The roar of their engines. The voices of the crowd along the track. Genuine enthusiasm and passion. The 4C project is born from the purest Alfa Romeo spirit. A project that wants to show enthusiasts a supercar dream. A unique car, both in design and technology, created to excite the driver, both on the tracks and on the streets. Now, every passionate driver's dream can finally be achieved.
The 4C design nods at history and makes reference to the unmistakable style of the 33 Stradale: essential beauty at the service of extreme mechanics. Built in Modena, Alfa Romeo 4C combines two excellences: Alfa engineering and Maserati manufacturing, in one. Performance has never been so attractive.
The essence of the Alfa Romeo 4C is simple: pure performance. Appearance is gauged to performance and not an end in itself. Each feature of 4C's breathtaking looks – such as its slim volumes, muscular design and air intakes – has a specific aerodynamic function and contributes to creating a downforce to increase stability at top speed.
As with the exterior, everything on the inside has a precise function and expresses the racing spirit of Alfa Romeo. To start with, the unique body cell is made from a one-piece shell of carbon fibre. The seats incorporate a reinforced composite structure and special lightweight padding. The steering wheel is moulded at the bottom and the controls are all oriented towards the driver. Aluminum pedals and heel guards form the last details of a true sporting character.
Reactivity is paramount in cars designed to astonish. The new TCT twin dry clutch with launch control optimises gear changing and acceleration, while fun on the race track is guaranteed by simply flicking the intuitive D.N.A. selector to Race mode.
The 4C's 1750 cc turbocharged power plant is based on state-of-the-art engine technology. And Alfa Romeo's engineers have made this technology even more aggressive and efficient. This small yet amazing solution delivers unprecedented sporting performance, worthy of a supercar, while everything is engineered to deliver the purest Alfa Romeo emotion at the wheel: drive it to believe it.
The four-cylinder, direct injection, 177kW 1750 Turbo petrol engine, entirely made of aluminum, brings extraordinary performance with a peak torque of 350 Nm, 80% of which is available at 1700 rpm. Alfa Romeo 4C has a top speed in excess of 250 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds: a truly remarkable result.
