Alfa Romeo Returns to Lightweight Logic with New 4C

The 2014 Alfa 4C is compact, agile and engineered for pure driving satisfaction.

The all-new Alfa Romeo 4C marks the return to the logic of lightweight sports coupes for the Alfa Romeo brand.

Its design is defined by function; the need to wrap the engine and chassis in a compact, aerodynamically-efficient shape, making it a worthy descendent of one of the most beautiful coupés of all time: the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale.

Designed and engineered by Alfa Romeo and built at the Maserati plant in Modena, the mid-engined Alfa Romeo 4C employs the latest technologies of Alfa Romeo's newest models: The new, all-aluminum 1,750cc turbocharged petrol engine; the latest-generation "Alfa TCT" dry twin clutch transmission and the Alfa DNA drivingmode selector - now with a new "Race" mode. The 2014 Alfa 4C also includes the Launch Control functionality.

Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph takes just 4.3 seconds in the new Alfa Romeo 4C and top speed is 160 mph, but this supercar performance isn't at the expense of the environment. Due to its light weight and advanced engine and transmission technologies, the emissions of the Alfa Romeo 4C fall well within the strict limits of Euro 6.

Interior Design

Inside the Alfa Romeo 4C, the exposed carbon-fiber chassis and driver-oriented controls leave you in no doubt as to the purposeful nature of the car. In place of traditional dials, a multi-function, digital display occupies the instrument binnacle and the steering wheel is a bespoke, flat-bottomed, two-spoke item with integrated paddle gear-shifters. The remaining controls are grouped together on the tunnel console, including the button-operated TCT transmission selector and the DNA system selector, which alters the operational parameters of the engine, transmission, ESC and electronic Q2 differential depending on the driver's requirements. Composite bucket seats and aluminum pedals complete the minimalistic, drive-focused cabin.
