Alfa Romeo 4C Expected at 2013 Geneva Show
The Alfa Romeo 4C will re-launch the Italian brand here in America, and a report from Autocar suggests that we will see the production version at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show.
Speaking with a Fiat spokesman, AutoGuide learned that the 4C is very likely to bow at either of the two big European shows in 2013, Frankfurt or Geneva, though the company could not confirm which one. Given its history of sports car debuts, and the fact that the concept version bowed here, the Geneva show makes the most sense.
The 4C will run with a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine, and weigh around 1,980 lbs, giving it a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 4.5 seconds. The power will be translated using a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The debut of the car in America has now become uncertain, but will likely come in late 2013, or sometime in 2014.
