The long awaited Alfa Romeo 4C finally made its debut in production spec at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and at the weekend the 4C made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. To make sure the 4C made as big an impact as possible at Goodwood, we’d expected Alfa to run up the hillclimb in the launch edition 4C, which gets plenty of extra goodies including a carbon fibre body kit and spoiler, but this 4C looked to be a standard model.
But even though we’d like to have seen the launch edition with its extra carbon fibre goodies, the standard car gets exactly the same 1750cc 4-cylinder petrol engine with enough get up and go, 236bhp, to move the lightweight 4C (under 900kg) to 62mph in just 4.5 seconds.
And we have to say, the Alfa 4C does look sharp and appealing and made a decent effort playing on the hillclimb with the rest of the goodies on offer at Goodwood.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is due to go on sale next month (August 2013 – or at least that’s the release date currently) and although Alfa hasn’t revealed UK prices for the 4C yet we do know the Launch Edition will cost around £52k.
Which probably means a starting point of £49,995 for the standard car.
