After making its worldwide launch in April at the Geneva Motor Show, the Alfa 4C Concept will be showcased in Frankfurt for the 64th International Motor Show. The vehicle will have an exclusive and new exterior of “fluid metal” color that shows off its sinuous and smooth lines. The project has been refined in the past months, enriching the Alfa 4C Concept with technical contents to boost its dynamic excellence.
Among the features that make this concept vehicle worthy to be dubbed as a “supercar” are its weight of about 850kg, a power-to-weight ratio of not greater than 4kg per HP and an engine delivering at least 200 bhp.
This concept vehicle features the formula of the rear-wheel drive, two-seater coupé with its central engine, a wheelbase of not greater than 2.4 metres, and a length of around 4 meters. These dimensions highlight the 4C Concept’s compact attributes while accentuating its agility. The vehicle utilizes materials and technology based from the 8C Competizione such as the use of aluminum, carbon, rear-wheel drive.
It also uses the innovations from Alfa Romeo models that are still on sale like the ALFA TCT twin dry clutch transmission, the 1750 turbo petrol engine with direct injection, and all the best of DNA technology from Alfa such as the dynamic control selector. On another note, an Alfa Giulietta that has been fitted with the next-generation ALFA TCT twin dual dry clutch semi-automatic transmission will also be featured on the Alfa Romeo stand at the show.
This inventive transmission guarantees enhanced driving comfort and a sportier experience compared with conventional automatic gearboxes, coupled with reduced fuel consumption levels and improved efficiency. This Giulietta will be obtainable with two engine options -- the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 bhp diesel engine and the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp engine.
