Alfa Romeo 4C – Passion “Made in Italy”

Alfa Romeo may be the most beautiful car, but only after the exclusive 8C. The new Alfa Romeo 4C had its debut in a serial version, only 2 years after the concept enjoyed its greatest success. Italian coupe was designed to delight Geneva; right now we can only see it in a few pictures. Alfa Romeo 4C is a quite important model for the Italians, both in terms of sales and image. After all it is the model that marks the return of Alfa Romeo brand in America! Alfa Romeo 4C looks almost like the concept it derives of, that means gorgeous.

 It makes you think that Germans would never be able to design something like this. A lot of lines, bumps and typical Latin design created one of the most beautiful cars of the modern world. I love it, even though I do not understand why they had to include those integrated LED lights, which don’t really seem to fit into the general design. Alfa Romeo 4C is a coupe with 2 seats, central engine and rear wheel drive. And this is all. The body is made ​​of aluminum and carbon fiber, so that weight does not 1 exceed 1000 kg. This is very little and extremely good for the dynamics, although Alfa Romeo 4C is less than 4 meters long.

 The Italians have built for this coupe a 4-cylinder engine of 1750 cc, which is also to be found on the Alfa Giulietta QV, but with less power. Although the Italians give no statistics yet, this engine produces 235 hp on the sporty Giulietta, so we expect an output of about 300 hp on the 4C. When discussing the concept, the expectations were about less than 5 seconds up to 100 km/h and a top speed of 250 km/h. We will have exact information after its debut in Geneva. Source:
