All-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C …

All-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

Designed by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, and inspired by the brand’s legendary racing history and classic models, the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is distinguished by its stunning mid-engine proportions and essential elements that directly contribute to the coupe’s lightweight, precise function and high performance.

Designed to be “The Alfa of Alfas,” the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C immediately recalls some of the brand’s most iconic models, including the lightness and efficiency illustrated by the aluminum-bodied 1938 8C 2900 B Touring; the 1952 1900 C52 “Flying Saucer” that could exceed 140 mph (230 kph); and most notably the legendary 1967 33 Stradale, the homologated version of the racing Type 33.

Considered one of the most beautiful cars of all time, the 33 Stradale left its mark in automotive history for its designed-for-performance philosophy: a road car that combined extreme mechanical and functional requirements with an essential style, which “clothed” the engine and magnesium alloy and steel tube chassis with unmistakable Alfa Romeo design.

The 4C relives these Alfa Romeo traditions in state-of-the-art form and shares the same lines as the 33 Stradale. Similarly, its low density, Italian-styled composite body provides the covering for the carbon fiber monocoque, aluminum engine frame and high-performance turbocharged engine.

The 4C also marks another milestone in the Alfa Romeo brand’s journey, which was embarked upon with the 8C Competizione (2008) and 8C Spider (2009) – continuing the design theme of compact size, dynamism and agility.

The all-new Alfa Romeo 4C’s compact dimensions are truly unique and add to its light weight and agility. With dimensions of 157.5 inches (400 cm) in length, 73.5 inches (186 cm) in width and an extremely low 46.6 inches (118 cm) in overall height, this new Alfa Romeo exudes proportions of exotic supercars.

With inspiration from the legendary 1967 33 Stradale and an interior comprised of elemental and essential components, entering the interior of the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C means entering a world derived from motorsport.

Most notable to Alfa Romeo 4C passengers is the stunning, exposed carbon fiber monocoque surrounding the passenger compartment and highlighting the coupe’s lightweight and technological uniqueness.

The interior expresses the racing spirit of Alfa Romeo. The dashboard and door panels have an “asphalt” treatment that designers selected to convey a maximum driving sensation from the road. A thermoformed dashboard shell is similar to those found in ultra-exotic supercars and is available fully wrapped in premium leather. Inspired by motorcycle racing and race cars, the cockpit features a clean and functional design with a flat-bottom performance steering wheel with paddle-shift controls.

Driver-oriented center stack controls, along with aluminum pedals and footboards, highlight Alfa Romeo 4C’s track-oriented spirit and attention to detail.

Emphasizing the Alfa Romeo 4C’s advanced technology and focus on weight reduction is a 7-inch full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster that replaces the traditional analog gauge cluster. With its simple, high-impact graphics, the display enables the driver to stay focused on the road, or track ahead.

Two sport seats feature a carbon fiber and fiberglass reinforced-composite structure to deliver the strength and weight savings. Available in cloth, leather, and leather with microfiber, the Alfa Romeo 4C’s seats provide the posture and bolstering needed for performance driving, while giving the comfort required for everyday use.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
