The all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C makes its official debut at the New York Auto Show. The all new 4C is a perfect blend of Italian style, performance and technical excellence, for maximum driving pleasure in complete safety.
“The all-new Alfa Romeo 4C delivers supercar-level performance in its most elemental form,” said Harald Wester, President and CEO of Alfa Romeo. “With its ultra-lightweight materials and technological solutions derived directly from motorsports, a mid-engine proportion for maximum agility and purposeful styling cues to enhance performance – the all-new 4C coupe marks Alfa Romeo’s return to sports cars and the brand’s return to North America.”
The sports-car features two composite-framed sport seats; thermoformed dashboard and exposed carbon fiber monocoque highlight the coupe’s technological uniqueness. Furthermore, a driver-oriented cockpit with flat-bottom performance steering wheel with paddle-shift controls and aluminum pedals speak to the brand’s racing spirit. The vehicle is equipped with a 7-inch full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster that displays simple, high impact graphics to keep the driver focused on the road, or track ahead.
Powering the Alfa Romeo 4C is the all-new 1750cc direct injection engine that produces 237bhp and 350Nm of top torque. This all-aluminum engine is coupled to a paddle-shifting Alfa TCT twin-clutch transmission, which has been specifically tuned for the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C.
