Watch Alfa Romeo 4C’s Nurburgring Lap in Full [Video]
As we’ve previously reported, the brand new Alfa Romeo 4C completed the fastest lap on the famed German track in only 8 minutes and 4 seconds, setting a new record for cars with engines that have less than 250 horsepower at their disposal, matching lap times achieved by sportscars such as the Porsche Cayman S or the Audi R8. The vehicle was fitted with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tires during the run and was driven by Nordschleife expert Horst von Saurma.
As a reminder, the Alfa Romeo 4C is motivated by a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 240 HP to the rear wheels. The mill enables the lightweight sportscar (2,000 pounds) accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 4.5 seconds.
