Alfa Romeo 6C Planned as Jaguar F-Type Fighter
The Alfa Romeo 4C will start arriving U.S. dealerships soon but an even hotter model might be in tow.
The Italian automaker is preparing a 6C model that will take on the Jaguar F-Type, with styling based on the Maserati Alfieri concept that debuted earlier this year in Geneva. Sporting a front-engine, rear-wheel drive setup in coupe form, the 6C will likely head to production in 2017, a year after the Alfieri.
According to a report from Auto Express, the 6C will distinguish itself with a razor-sharp front end and will be the most aggressive interpretation of the company’s new family face. Underpinning the sports car will be the same chassis as the Alfieri and power will come from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine providing between 480 and 520 hp.
Following in the footsteps of the 4C, the 6C’s production will also be limited to just a few thousand units.
