ALFA ROMEO 4C SPIDER
MASTER OF POWER AND WEIGHT EQUATION
If there’s one thing Alfa Romeo has learned from years of victory on the race tracks, it’s that balance is key. The mid-engine layout, rear-wheel drive and monocoque chassis give the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider an ideal weight distribution with amazing handling control.
Natural elements make up the most high-tech materials in automotive engineering. The monocoque of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a single Carbon Fiber body similar to that of a supercar, while its crankcase and its front and rear frames combine the strength, rigidity and lightweight properties of aluminum. Sheet Molded Compound (SMC) is used for the outer body and is 20% lighter and more stable than steel — and also resists corrosion.
HANDCRAFTED IN ITALY
In almost every aspect of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, you can sense the touch of the fine craftspeople who handcraft the vehicle in the Maserati workshop located in Modena, Italy. Impeccable standards and extensive inspections ensure utmost satisfaction.
Beyond delivering outdoor splendor, the open-air design of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider includes an interior that caters to the senses. Glances turn into gazes with gleaming carbon fiber accents and vent surrounds, distinctive exterior color-matched fabrics and trims and contrasting stitching. Opulent materials in seating, steering wheel, shifter and other touch points complete the experience.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider makes its mark with aggressive performance that’s owed to innovative technology and new levels of efficiency.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider boasts 237 hp, 258 lb-ft of torque, 136 hp/liter and a blazing top speed of 160 mph. A quick look at the engine reveals an all-aluminum design with 4 valves per cylinder, a new-generation turbocharger, ultra-high pressure direct fuel injection and a dual-core intercooler that cools intake air before it reaches the turbocharger.
Twin clutch transmission with launch control
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is equipped with an Alfa TCT 6-speed automatic transmission with a twin-clutch and paddle shifters, a solution that combines the instant power of a sequential shift with all the convenience of an automatic. Pressing the brake pedal while fully pushing the accelerator pedal and triggering the left paddle on the steering wheel activates Launch Control. The moment the brake pedal is released, the system automatically controls the transmission, traction, and power to maximize acceleration.
