Alfa Romeo 4C Will Be Launched With 240 PS Engine
That made everything sound quite exciting, but the reality of it all is going to be a little bit different. According to CarScoop, an Alfa Romeo dealer meeting in Switzerland has revealed fresh details about the new model. Just as we expected, the aluminium block four-cylinder engine will actually make 240 PS or 237 HP about the same as the 1.75-liter engine in the Giulietta QV.
The same source suggests the car will weight only 850 kg (1,874 lbs), though we're not 100% convinced Alfa Romeo had the money to develop such a light platform.
What we can believe is that the 4C will be priced between €56,000 and €64,000 (between $76,400 and $87,300 at today's exchange rate).
If more power is what you want, a 270 PS version of the same car will be ready for 2014. However, that will be a more hardcore car called the 4C Stradale (sounds like a Ferrari doesn't it).
Honestly, the 4C now sounds more like a niche car than ever before, and it's actually being treated as one. Production will be strictly limited to just 2,000 examples a year, split evenly between the coupe and an upcoming convertible version.
comments written so far
I read somewhere that Alfa is looking to push the 4C in the US at $50k... And the US version might get 300bhp and over... and even it 240bhp this car should clock 0-100kmh in around 4.7s... Which is Porsche Cayman S territory and this is the performance and price market they are targeting
So before slanting something you know nothing about, wait for the official final figures, specs and prices announced by Alfa Romeo.
