Lightweight strength

First and foremost, carbon fibre was chosen to create the central passenger cell.

 

Carbon fibre offers major advantages over conventional materials, which are “isotropic”, i.e. have the same strength characteristics in all directions.
In unidirectional carbon fibre, because all the fibres run in the same direction, parts made from it can be up to 5 times stronger.

 

Aluminum, a strong but incredibly lightweight material, was used to make the engine block, the engine itself and the front and rear cells that protect the passenger compartment against impacts.

 

Behind the occupants, a high strength steel roll-bar prevents deformation in the event of roll-over. Advanced composite materials, previously thought too difficult to apply to production models, complete the car's innovative structure. On the Alfa Romeo 4C, low density composites are used for the outer body as they guarantee better stability than aluminium and 20% less weight than sheet steel.
