Genesis of a dream

1967 Alfa Romeo produces 18 examples of the 33 Stradale, the homologated version of the Tipo 33 used in racing. The car is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful of all times. It enters the history books for its totally performance-oriented design philosophy and dramatically low weight.
It is packed with innovative technology, including a brand new chassis with a mixed structure derived from aeronautical technology, made from magnesium alloy and steel tube.
This is the car from which the Alfa Romeo 4C draws its inspiration, form and content.
As can be seen at first glance, the two cars share the same lines, in which every single element has an essential function, and nothing is superfluous.  This perfect balance is the result of coherent design choices and perfect harmony between mechanical and stylistic requirements.
From concept car to production model, the changes are minimal, and made only for homologation purposes.
The objective is to give enthusiasts the supercar of their dreams, a car with unique styling and design choices, to be driven on both road and track.  Once, this was a dream.  Now it is the Alfa Romeo 4C.

Areodynamic gracefulness

No concessions to style for its own sake, to convenience or to any desire to surprise. The essence of the Alfa Romeo 4C is simple: pure performance. Every single design decision was taken with this in mind.
The heart of the beast, a centrally mounted engine, is clearly visible through the back window.
Every other element in the car starts from here. The round rear light clusters blend into muscular rear wings that house the air intakes for the intercooler. The energy-packed and dynamic sides taper into a perfect front profile for the headlights, inside which two V-shaped lines dive down to the shield-shaped grille and Alfa Romeo symbol.
The result is a car that conveys the pure spirit of motorsport. Every structural element has been conceived to fulfil a specific aerodynamic function, and to help create the downforce needed to ensure maximum grip under fast cornering.

Racing interiors

Entering an Alfa Romeo 4C means entering the world of motorsport. As with the exterior, everything on the inside has a precise function: The 4C dispenses with the superfluous and provides only the essentials for superior driving performance.
To start with, the unique body cell is made from bare carbon fibre. Inside, competition seats guarantee a comfortable but correct racing posture. The seats incorporate a reinforced composite structure and special lightweight padding. The upholstery is in either technical fabric or leather.
On the 4C, absolutely everything expresses the racing spirit of Alfa Romeo. The steering wheel is moulded at the bottom. The dashboard is made from a thermoformed shell like those found on limited edition supercars. And the controls are all oriented towards the driver to give complete control of the car. The instrument panel graphics have a high visual impact and are clearly inspired by those of sports motorcycles and competition cars. Aluminium pedals and heel guards form the last details of a true sporting character.

Made in italy

Alfa Romeo decided to produce the 4C in Modena, and set up a dedicated unit inside the town's Maserati works. Here, the focus is always on evolved technology and top quality craftsmanship, a combination that leads to the production of cars that are truly unique in technical solutions and attention to detail.
On the 4C assembly line, people make the difference. The expert technicians dedicated to the production of this new Alfa Romeo have undergone 500 hours of special training and have also followed the last product development process for 10 months. They all have an enviable level of in-depth technical knowledge as a result. Assembly technicians follow every phase of the process personally and, at the end of the line, perform rigorous quality control tests to ensure that all components function perfectly. The finished car is then handed over to expert test drivers for dynamic performance testing under a wide range of conditions. Only then is a new Alfa Romeo 4C declared ready to take to the road.

Italian excellence

The Alfa Romeo 4C was designed by Alfa Romeo and is produced in the Maserati plant in Modena, but Italian automotive excellence can be found in every single element of the car. The biggest Italian names in the sector, already suppliers for the biggest supercar manufacturers in the world, played their part in creating the Alfa Romeo 4C:
Adler Group: manufacturer of the carbon monocoque
Emarc: manufacturer of the roll bar, crash-boxes and all aluminium mounts
IMR: manufacturer of the bodywork in composite material
That’s why the Alfa Romeo 4C represents Italian manufacturing excellence in the automotive sector.

Customisation

The Alfa Romeo 4C offers various possibilities for customisation, both aesthetically and to highlight its sports character, which permit it to satisfy the requirements of all customer types. Six exterior colours are available for the Alfa Romeo 4C: three pastel (Black, White and Alfa Red), one metallic (Basalto Grey) and two three-layer (Madreperla White and Competizione Red).
The rims on offer, in addition to various sizes and designs, permit the choice of colour: steel or a burnishing treatment to lend an even sportier look to the car. There’s even a choice of brake caliper colours. The Alfa Romeo 4C offers four: grey (as standard), red, yellow and black.
As far as the interior is concerned, the Sabelt seats with carbon fibre shell, the epitome of the sports seats on the market, have 4 different upholstery options: in addition to the standard black fabric with red stitching, you can choose black or red leather, or even the top-of-the-range offer of leather and microfibre with red stitching. What’s more, the interior colour – black as standard – can be modified with the “two-tone red interior” option, which gives the inside an even more sporty and exclusive appearance.
The carbon headlight casing and instrument panel hood are the two optionals on offer that propose additional carbon fibre, a material with a leading role in the car and visible from inside, thanks to the exposed monocoque, on other elements of the car.
The Racing double exhaust tailpipe, the Racing Set-Up and the AR Racing Tyres, on the other hand, are the optionals which offer an even sportier feel on the Alfa Romeo 4C. In addition to these specific optionals for the car, Alfa Romeo 4C customers have been provided with a series of exclusive optional accessories, like the custom 4C red car cover and the Alfa Romeo 4C roller suitcase.
