With a power to weight ratio of less than 8 lb/hp, the 4C promises to be a nimble sports car. Driving the rear wheels is a mid-mounted 1.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 236 hp, mated to a TCT dual-clutch transmission complete with paddle shifters.
Inside, typical heavily bolstered seats are used, wrapped in leather and finished with contrasting red stitching. Carbon fiber trim is found throughout the interior, and is also the basis for the 4C’s monocoque chassis.
A new “Race” mode has been added to the 4C to enhance the car’s track abilities, accompanying Dynamic, Natural and All Weather mode options.
The Alfa Romeo 4C will debut at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Motor Show, media days for which are March sixth and seventh.
