Alfa Romeo 4C – The Most Awaited Concept Car of 2012


If you have been praying for a really fast and lightweight sports car, with the Alfa Romeo 4C, your prayers are being answered.

Already creating ripples in the auto world, this Italian car is born from those ideas that dreams are made of. A concept car, the Alfa Romeo 4C is the perfect combination of Italian style, excellent performance, and technical brilliance like the “Alfa DNA system”, a “1750cc Turbo Petrol engine” as well as a TCT transmission. This prototype is fitted with a powerful “4 cylinder” engine offering more than 200HP, and has the capability to achieve a top speed of more than 150 mph, and an acceleration of 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds.

Quick, compact, and light weight is some of the remarkable characteristics, achieved due to the use of carbon fiber. The car’s body is crafted entirely from carbon fiber, however, the rear frame and crash boxes are crafted from aluminum. The result is a really agile car with a 4kg/HP – weight/power ratio.  

With a rear-wheel drive coupe design, the 4C Concept Car is a two-seater compact approx. 4 mts in length, having a wheelbase of around 2.4 mts. The Alfa Romeo 4C’s mechanical set-up is based on the concept of providing rear strength and front muscles. The car engine is also connected centrally and transversely.

Another fantastic new attribute of the Alfa Romeo 4C is the newly created ‘Lava Red’ color. This is anodized; soft-touch red gives the impression of depth and power. The color ‘moves’ smoothly on the car’s sexy curves and enhance the overall look of the car.
