Alfa Romeo 4C Gallery

Alfa Romeo 4C is one of the sexiest automobiles on earth. Below are some snippets of information we received from Alfa Romeo’s press release:

DESIGN

• All-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C coupe’s mid-engine proportions and inspiration from the brand’s classic icons and racing traditions highlight its purposeful design for maximum performance
• Inspired by the 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, the all-new 4C coupe shares the same lines, in which every single design element has an essential function
• The exposed carbon fiber monocoque provides the interior with an elemental look, while a driver’s cockpit with flat-bottom steering wheel, 7-inch color thin- film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster and reinforced-composite sport seats speak to 4C coupe’s lightweight and precise function
• Limited-edition Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition includes unique carbon fiber design appointments
• Personalization from the factory: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C offers four lightweight wheel and lacquered brake color choices, cloth, leather, and leather with microfiber sport seats selections, along with six exterior colors

ENGINEERING & POWERTRAIN

• Formula 1 derived technologies: Alfa Romeo 4C engineers leveraged advanced materials and technological solutions to create an all-new ultra-lightweight four-cylinder coupe with supercar-level performance
• A high-tech beating heart: 237 horsepower all-aluminum 1750 cc direct- injection turbocharged engine with intercooler, dual variable-valve timing and advanced scavenging technology
• Rapid-fire shifting: Alfa TCT twin-clutch transmission provides the driver with the control of a sequential gear selection and calibration modes to deliver blistering fast gear changes
• Alfa Romeo 4C’s exotic carbon fiber monocoque with “pre-preg” technology and extensive use of aluminum create a competition-ready architecture and chassis
• Alfa DNA selector enables the driver to optimize the Alfa Romeo 4C to the level of driving performance and capability needed through four powertrain and chassis control calibration modes: Dynamic, Natural, All-weather and Race
