Arriving at dealerships this summer, the production version of the new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider makes debut.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider name recalls the brand’s sporting tradition: the acronyms 8C and 6C in the 1930s and 1940s distinguished racing and road cars fitted with powerful eight- and six-cylinder engines. Now for 2015, the 4C Spider finds an all-aluminum 1750 cc direct-injection, dual intercooled, advanced turbocharged engine with dual variable-valve timing paired to the Alfa twin-clutch transmission and Alfa D.N.A. selector with four adjustable drive modes. What does this mean? 237-hp or 136-hp per litre. An all-new available Akrapovic dual-mode exhaust system features dual, centre-mounted tips with carbon fibre surround and signature Alfa resonant sound (late availability).
The 4C is lighter too with a unique carbon fibre windshield frame and available carbon fibre “halo” highlight 4C Spider’s ultralight carbon fibre monocoque and aluminum chassis structures, which enable an power-to-weight ratio and supercar-level performance. Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider combines the performance engineering of Alfa Romeo and the craftsmanship of Maserati manufacturing. Seven exterior colours are available for the 4C Spider, and include: Rosso Alfa, Black, White, Basalt Grey Metallic, Rosso Competizione Tri-coat, Madreperla White Tri-coat and all-new Giallo (yellow).
When an Italian automaker with 100-years of history puts out a new car, the world takes note. And the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is looking to set the bar high. The all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider arrives in U.S. and Canadian dealerships this summer.
