Performance is enhanced with a host of features designed to make each trip unforgettable
Heritage and aerodynamic gracefulness in perfect balance, the design nods to history and makes reference to the unmistakable style of the 33 Stradale. Essential beauty at the service of extreme mechanics. Built in Modena, Alfa Romeo 4C combines two excellences – Alfa engineering and Maserati manufacturing – in one. Performance has never been this attractive. Each feature of the Alfa Romeo 4C’s breathtaking looks - like its slim volumes, muscular design and air intakes – has a specific aerodynamic function and contributes to creating downforce to increase stability at top speed
Entering an Alfa Romeo 4C means entering the world of motorsport. To start with, the unique body cell is made from bare carbon fibre. Inside, competition seats guarantee a comfortable but correct racing posture. The seats incorporate a reinforced composite structure and special lightweight padding. The dashboard is made from a thermoformed shell like those found on limited edition supercars and the controls are all oriented towards the driver to give complete control of the car. The instrument panel graphics are inspired by those of competition cars. Aluminium pedals and heel guards form the last details of a true sporting character.
ENGINE 1.75 L
HORSEPOWER 237 HP
TORQUE 258 LB-FT
TOP SPEED 160 MPH
0 TO 60MPH 4.1 SECONDS
With an abundance of performance enhancing technology found in the 4C, you'll have full command of your ride.
On the Alfa Romeo 4C, the system has been thoroughly revised to respond to the needs of a high performance supercar and features a fourth mode: Alfa Race. This is the most extreme performance mode, and is engaged by moving the mode selector to Dynamic position and holding it there for a few seconds. Alfa Race mode puts you in total control of your car under race conditions. By minimizing the interventions of electronic systems, it leaves you, the driver, in complete command by deactivating ESC stability control and ASR.
ALFA TCT (Twin Clutch Transmission)
The Alfa TCT clutch has been specially modified for use on the Alfa Romeo 4C. The 4C's special clutch features all-new control software that ensures the fastest possible gear shifts under all conditions. Gear shifts are more aggressive in the sporting performance modes, and drivers can clearly feel the new gear engaging, as on a racing car. On bends, gearshifts are completed in the smoothest way possible to avoid reducing stability. The 4C is also fitted with Launch Control which is activated by pressing the brake pedal while pushing the accelerator pedal all the way down and squeezing the paddle on the left of the steering wheel. As soon as you release the brake, the system automatically controls the gearbox, traction and power to maximize acceleration.
TURBOCHARGED (After-run Pump)
The 4C introduces an after-run pump, an automatic cool-down system put in place to protect the turbocharger. In many other vehicles, oil circulation stops the moment the engine is switched off. This leaves stagnant and heated oil in the turbocharger, which over time triggers a loss of lubricating capacity and leads to a formation of residue that can damage the engine. The 4C’s electric after-run pump is automatically controlled by the ECU and keeps oil circulating through the turbocharger until it has cooled sufficiently.
BEAUTY IN THE DETAILS
From precision stitching to perfectly contoured seating, every inch of the 4C is designed for pure driving pleasure.
At the front, the Alfa Romeo 4C features a double wishbone configuration and at the rear, an advanced MacPherson suspension. This ensures superb road holding and driving fun, even in the most extreme maneuvers. The braking system is designed for high performance race track use. The perforated, self-ventilated front discs and Brembo calipers stop the car from 100 to 0 km/h in only 36 metres. And to ensure maximum grip and prevent skidding under all conditions, the 4C is fitted with different diameter tyres with the larger size on the rear for the best possible handling.
MADE IN ITALY
The Alfa Romeo 4C is hand built at the Maserati factory in Modena by expert technicians who have undergone 500 hours of special training. Assembly technicians follow every phase of the process personally and, at the end of the line, perform rigorous quality control tests to ensure that all components function perfectly.
