Although almost all of the info regarding Alfa Romeo’s 4C sports car has been divulged by the brand, what appears to be the official brochure for the car surfaced on an online forum today, revealing a few more interesting details.
The weight of the 4C has been discussed in detail, as with 240 hp, every pound that can be shaved off makes a big difference. The brochure reveals a dry weight of 1,970 lbs., which is likely to be around 100 or 200 pound lighter than the curb weight. Still, that puts the 4c just over the 2,000 lbs. mark.
Offered with four driving modes: race, dynamic, weather, and natural, the brochure lays out what each setting will do to affect the driving dynamics. Natural mode keeps the cars electronic stability control (ESC) on at all times, while dynamic mode makes the ESC less intrusive, though it does stay on. Throttle and torque response are improved for both dynamic and race mode, along with the addition of faster gear changes. In race mode, the transmission does not offer an automatic option, and must be shifted using the paddle shifters, while the ESC is deactivated. Lastly, weather mode smooths out the gear shift, while optimizing the ESC for slippery surfaces.
The dashboard and gauges are also shown up close, along with all the different packaging options that can be had with the 4C.
