Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider combines two things - the performance engineering of Alfa Romeo and the craftsmanship of Maserati manufacturing.
Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider combines two things - the performance engineering of Alfa Romeo and the craftsmanship of Maserati manufacturing.

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has been revealed today at the NAIAS in Detroit. It arrives in U.S. and Canadian dealerships this summer.

The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider debuts with panoramic views complemented with a signature Alfa exhaust note. Like the award-winning 4C Coupe, the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider model's designation is a return to "the great Alfa Romeos" and continues this tradition with the innovative all-aluminum 1,742 cc turbocharged direct injection, dual intercooler four-cylinder engine, delivering an impressive 136 horsepower-per-liter.

With seating for two, panoramic views and the soundtrack of an Italian performance-tuned engine and exhaust, Spiders are among the most exhilarating experiences in motoring - and represent the very core of Alfa Romeo's DNA and heritage.

Thanks to its mid-engine layout, advanced technology and compact size, the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider demonstrates its precision, agility and performance credentials with a top speed of 160 miles per hour (mph), 0-to-60 mph acceleration blasts in an estimated 4.1-seconds, 1.1 g of lateral acceleration and 1.25 g of maximum braking deceleration.

Alfa Romeo's Seductive Italian Exterior Design

Sheet-molded compound (SMC) composite panels form the convertible's seductive Italian design, and "clothing" its state-of-the-art carbon fiber monocoque chassis and all-aluminum 1,742 cc turbocharged, direct-injected engine.

Covering the "beating heart" of this Italian supercar is a deck-lid with three functional heat extractors and an aerodynamically tuned spoiler. And it's from the 4C Spider's "beating heart" where every other design element starts: two muscular forms straddle the rear hood and elevate the body above the cockpit's beltline for visual strength and foundation for the black or available carbon fiber "halo."

The rear fascia and round rear LED illuminated taillamps blend into the muscular rear wings for a powerful stance, while stylistically incorporating large functional air intakes to cool the engine. Below, dual exhausts are mounted at the corners and highlight the 4C Spider's supercar stance. Inspired by the 4C Spider Concept, an all-new, Akrapovic dual-mode center-mounted performance exhaust system will be available on the 4C Spider (late availability).

Seven exterior colors are available for the 4C Spider, and include: Rosso Alfa, Black, White, Basalt Grey Metallic, Rosso Competizione Tri-coat, Madreperla White Tri-coat and all-new Giallo (yellow).

With the arrival of the 4C Spider are four all-new wheel designs, which include staggered fitting 17 x 7.0-inch (front) and 18 x 8.0-inch (rear) alloy wheels in Silver or Dark finish. For added style and performance, larger 18 x 7.0-inch (front) and wider 19 x 8.5-inch (rear) forged wheels in Silver or Dark Grey finish are also available. Completing the look are four brake caliper color choices, including Silver (standard) or available Red, Yellow, or Black.
