The beautiful Alfa Romeo 4C was officially revealed
Does making love have anything to do with the automotive world? Well, apparently not, but we’re probably going to change the way you think by a considerable bit once we showcase this epitome of sexiness. It is the latest achievement of Alfa Romeo, dubbed the 4C, and my God this car is sexy.
The production version of the 4C boasts with a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and a reported power to weight ratio of less than 4 kg per HP. The power source is a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine delivering a maximum output of 237 HP (177 kW).
Thanks to the stupendous 950 kg (2,094 lbs) weight, it will be able sprint from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.5 seconds up to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Furthermore, the car will probably be measuring around 4 meters in length, 2 meters in width and 1.18 meters in height, with a 2 and a half meter wheelbase.
For the next year, the specialists at Alfa Romeo have announced the introduction of the road legal and racing Stradale versions, which will reportedly generate around 266 HP (198 kW). Also during 2014 the brand will be introducing a convertible variant. The entirety of the 4C series will be production-wise linked to Maserati’s Modena factory, starting this summer.
In terms of price, these brand new Alfa Romeo models will start at around €56,000 (that’s the equivalent of £49,000 or $76,500), up to a top price of €64,000 ($87,300 or £55,500). They look incredibly good, but aren’t they way overpriced?
