    2014 Alfa Romeo 4C

  • Powertrain: 237hp, 1.75 liter four-cylinder turbo
  • 0-to-62 Time (secs): 4.5 secs.
  • Top Speed (mph): 160 mph
  • Curb Weight (lb): 2,028 lbs.
  • Wheelbase (in): 93.7 in.

The new 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is a lightweight and very fast rear-engine, two-seater sports car. In fact, the 4C recently recorded the fastest lap on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife ever recorded by a car with less than 250 horsepower at just 8 minutes, 4 seconds. The 4C is propelled that quickly by the turbocharged, 237 horsepower, four-cylinder transverse-mounted engine tucked behind the seats. No manual transmission will be available, but the latest-generation “Alfa TCT” dry twin clutch transmission seems to do the job very nicely.

Handling is achieved through a double-wishbone front suspension attached to a carbon-fiber monocoque with a performance-tuned McPherson arrangement in the rear. The ventilated, cross-drilled brakes come fitted with Brembo calipers. The exhaust is specifically tuned to emit a full sound and the seats designed to optimize road feel.

Built in the Maserati plant in Modena, only 3,500 of the super-quick two-door coupes will be produced each year.
