Alfa Romeo 4C Concept gets a new paint job for the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 31, 2011

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.

Alfa Romeo At The 64th International Motor Show In Frankfurt

After its international public debut at the Geneva Motor Show last April, the Alfa 4C Concept will be exhibited at the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt next month in a new and exclusive 'fluid metal' exterior colour that dynamically enhances the smooth and sinuous lines of the car.

In recent months the project has been refined and enriched with technical contents to enhance the dynamic excellence of the Alfa 4C Concept. Vehicle weight is confirmed at around 850kg, the engine delivering more than 200 bhp and a power to weight ratio less than 4kg per HP – traits worthy of a true 'supercar'.

The Alfa 4C Concept showcases the formula of the two-seater, rear-wheel drive coupé with its central engine, a length of approximately 4 metres and a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres. These dimensions on the one hand emphasise the Alfa 4C Concept's compact attributes, whilst on the other accentuate its agility.

The Alfa 4C Concept uses technology and materials derived from the 8C Competizione – carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive – and technology from Alfa Romeo models currently on sale: the 1750 turbo petrol engine with direct injection, the ALFA TCT twin dry clutch transmission; and all the best of Alfa's DNA technology, obviously including the Alfa DNA dynamic control selector.

Also on display on the Alfa Romeo stand will be an Alfa Giulietta equipped with the next generation ALFA TCT twin dual dry clutch semi-automatic transmission. This innovative transmission ensures greater driving comfort and a sportier feel than conventional automatic gearboxes, combined with improved efficiency and lower fuel consumption levels.

The Giulietta with the ALFA TCT transmission will be available with a choice of two engines : the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp engine and the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 bhp diesel engine.

Alfa Romeo's sportiest compact car, the MiTo will showcase two new engines – a revolutionary 0.9 TwinAir TB 85bhp and a new 1.3 JTDM 85bhp . The award winning TwinAir engine developed by Fiat Powertrain, develops 85 bhp at 5,500 rpm and torque of 145Nm at 2,000 rpm. By using the Start&Stop device and the smart alternator, the MiTo Twin Air engine has the lowest value of CO2 emissions with petrol engines in its class :98g/km.
