2013 Geneva: Alfa Romeo 4C makes global debut, reveals its interior

Article by Christian A., on March 6, 2013

Alfa Romeo’s booth at the Geneva Motor Show is nothing short of amazing. Alfa Romeo 4C is ‘compact supercar’ that epitomizes the real essence of a sports car, portraying the brand’s values like its Italian style, performance, and technical excellence, total safety, and optimum driving satisfaction. Alfa Romeo designed the mid-engined rear-wheel drive coupé and it was produced in the Maserati plant in Modena.

It comes with 2 bucket seats. It will go on sale in 2013. It’s the first car to signify the comeback of the Italian brand to the U.S. and it also launches Alfa Romeo’s global growth plan.

The Alfa Romeo 4C is directly derived from the concept that was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It features technologies and materials taken from the 8C Competizione like carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive. It also makes use of technologies from the newest standard models from Alfa Romeo presently available in the market. But then, the new car has a much improved sports appeal. It is equipped with the new 1750 Turbo Petrol engine with direct injection and aluminium block.

It also gets the advanced “Alfa TCT” twin dry clutch transmission and the Alfa DNA selector with the brand-new Race mode. Its length is about 4 metres and it has a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres.

This means that the car is compact as well as agile. Furthermore, the Alfa Romeo 4C has a weight to power ratio of less than 4 kg/HP, offering the value of a true ‘supercar’. This model offers a distinct driving experience whether on the road or on the race track.

Alfa Romeo 4C is a compact supercar. That alone is enough of a description that allows a preview of the capability of the 4C to do wonders on the road or on the racetrack.

4C is compact. At less than 4 metres long, 200 cm wide, 118 cm high and with a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres, the Alfa Romeo 4C was built to match its weight to power ratio of less than 4 kg/HP with the agility to allow it greater flexibility and maneuverability. Above the wheels is a distinct musculature that allows the 4C to generate the power to accelerate at maximum speed.

The Alfa Romeo 4C is a supercar. Engineers and designers of the Alfa Romeo Centro Stile painstakingly worked on ensuring the 4C’s optimum performance at any given time. This is seen in the 4C’s ability for maximum grip even during fast cornering due to the downforce it is able to generate.

Alfa Romeo 4C is an aerodynamic sports car. The structure and balance of the 4C make it a compact sports car born of and reared from the synthesis of top class technology and sculpture of style and function. This makes the Alfa Romeo 4 truly a unique fusion of power and grace, of form and substance, and of speed and beautiful driving.
