The Alfa Romeo 4C will finally arrive in North America this summer, wearing a base price tag of $55,195 including destination.
The special edition Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition is also on its way, priced at $69,695. The Launch Edition will arrive in dealerships this summer while the standard 4C coupe will arrive in fall. The 4C Launch Edition will be limited to just 500 units and each one will be individually numbered.
Making the Launch Edition unique is either Rosso Alfa, Rosso Competizione or Madreperla White exterior paint, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, a front bumper with side air intakes, carbon fiber rear spoiler and mirror caps, race suspension tuning with front and rear sway bars, racing exhaust, staggered 18-inch (front) and 19-inch (rear) wheels, red brake calipers, sport seats with black microfiber, leather-wrapped instrument panel and door panels, red or white interior accent stitching, interior carbon fiber trim plates and a serialized Launch Edition plaque.
The North American 4C will have a dry weight of 2,315 lbs and a top speed of 160 mph. Its 0 to 60 mph acceleration time will be in the mid-four second range thanks to a 1.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
“The all-new 4C marks the return of ‘the great Alfa Romeos’ and represents the purest formation of the brand’s DNA with its supercar-levels of performance and innovation, all while focusing on making the driver an integral part and completion of the machine,” said Harald Wester, CEO of Alfa Romeo. “With its technological solutions derived directly from Formula 1, the Alfa Romeo 4C creates an infusion of body and machine, an extension of its driver’s soul that is ready, capable and willing to respond and deliver.”
