The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider continues an Alfa Romeo tradition of performance-oriented lines and proportions. Inspired by the 1967 Tipo 33 Stradale, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the 4C models are just as shapely, and offer the classic Alfa Romeo V-shaped “plunging neckline” Scudetto grille. Front and rear overhangs are dramatically short, and dimensions are aerodynamically and dynamically optimized. The famous Alfa Romeo badge confirms what all these visual cues are saying: this is a legitimate sports car.
Irresistible style and performance and a heritage of racing and craftsmanship the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider delivers the thrill of sharp cornering and quick turn-ins with open-air exhilaration. The extraordinary performance of the 4C is centred on one key concept: balance. Its mid-engine layout, rear-wheel drive and monocoque chassis give ideal weight distribution, with amazing handling and control— it will corner sharper, brake harder, turn in quicker and respond more readily.
With the top down the 4C Spider has a carbon fibre windshield surround and carbon fibre halo to complement the ultra-light carbon fibre monocoque chassis. Designed exclusively for the 4C Spider, the soft top can be easily removed, folded, and stowed in a dedicated case in the trunk.
The mid-engine-mounted 1750 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is impressive, 237 hp, 258 lb.-ft. of torque, 136 hp per litre and a top speed of 160 mph — all with up to 34 mpg hwy. Its all-aluminium design includes four valves per cylinder, a new-generation turbocharger, ultra-high-pressure direct fuel injection and a dual-core intercooler. The thrilling validation of this advanced engineering: 0 – 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. The 4C Spider is equipped with an ALFA TCT 6-speed automatic transmission with a twin clutch and paddle shifters, a solution that combines the instant power of a sequential shift with all the convenience of an automatic.
