Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition: Geneva Motor Show 2013Wed, 06 Mar 2013 00:00:00 -0800
Alfa Romeo has revealed the Alfa 4C at the Geneva Motor Show and the Alfa 4C Launch Edition which will cost €60,000.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition – just 1,000 are being built with only 400 staying in Europe – will cost a fairly strong €60k (around £52,000) and comes in either Carrara White of Alfa Red with a carbon fibre bodykit that adds carbon fibre for the spoiler at the back, to the door mirrors and round the headlights with dark alloys and front air intakes. The suspension also gets a tweak.
Under the skin is the same 1.75 litre four-cylinder turbo as you find in the Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde, but with an extra 5 horses for a total of 237bhp driving the back wheels through Alfa’s twin-clutch ‘box to the back wheels.
A total of 237bhp might not sound huge, but the Alfa 4C weighs in at just 955kg so the performance is lively, with 0-62mph of 4.5 seconds. You also get the very good Alfa DNA which offers not just the standard three modes but a new ‘Race’ mode too.
Despite declaring a price for the 4C Launch Edition. Alfa Romeo still haven’t come up with a price for the regular 4C, but at least we can be reasonably certain it will be less than the £52k they’re asking for the first 1,000 4Cs.
