US-spec Alfa Romeo 4C will be 342 pounds heavier than European version, priced from $55,195

According to our friends from Autoblog, the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C will start at $53,900 in the United States. Still, the $1,295 destination and handling charges will bring the price to $55,195. If you definitely want the 4C Launch Edition that was launched at the 2014 New York Auto Show, you will have to pay $69,695 (including destination) and you better hurry up as Alfa Romeo will only offer 500 units.

For those who don’t know, the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition comes with larger optional wheels that have a dark finish, a sport suspension, a sport exhaust and other upgrades.

What’s more interesting is that comparing it with the Euro-spec version, the US-spec Alfa Romeo 4C will be 342 pounds (155 kg) heavier. Apparently, a beefier carbon-fiber tub, as well as additionally US safety equipment are the reasons for the increased weight.

Despite the weight increase, the US-spec Alfa Romeo 4C will still have a dry weight of 1,050 kg (2,314 lbs). Of course, we still like the 895 kg (1,973 lbs) European version.

Under the hood, there is the new 1750 cc direct-injection aluminum engine that generates 237 hp and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is mated to a paddle-shifting Alfa TCT twin-clutch gearbox that offers Launch Control in Race mode, enabling the coupe to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in the mid-4 second range.
