STYLE

A DREAM COME TRUE

The 4C design nods at history and makes reference to the unmistakable style of the 33 Stradale: essential beauty at the service of extreme mechanics. Built in Modena, Alfa Romeo 4C combines two excellences: Alfa Romeo engineering and Maserati manufacturing, in one. Performance has never been so attractive.

EXTERIORS

AERODYNAMIC GRACE

The essence of the Alfa Romeo 4C is simple: pure performance. Appearance is gauged to performance and not an end in itself. Each feature of 4C's breathtaking looks – such as its slim volumes, muscular design and air intakes – has a specific aerodynamic function and contributes to creating a downforce to increase stability at top speed.

INTERIORS

RACING SPIRIT

As with the exterior, everything on the inside has a precise function and expresses the racing spirit of Alfa Romeo. To start with, the unique body cell is made from a one-piece shell of carbon fiber. The seats incorporate a reinforced composite structure and special lightweight padding. The steering wheel is molded at the bottom and the controls are all oriented towards the driver. Aluminum pedals and heel guards form the last details of a true sporting character.

UNIQUENESS

THE MOST
 EXCLUSIVE DETAILS

Every detail of 4C is conceived to ignite passion for sportiness. The alloy wheels go from 17" to 19", mounted in different sizes on the front and on the rear, to ensure a perfect balance and the best dynamics.
Brembo brake calipers with 4 small pistons are available in 4 colors: grey, black, yellow and, of course, red. The spoiler in body-color or in carbon fiber (available as optional), the Bi-LED headlights with carbon fiber surrounds, the air intakes on the side, the twin tailpipes, the sporty seats in a single carbon fiber shell, all go together to make the 4C an impressive Alfa Romeo masterpiece.

TECHNOLOGY

TECHNOLOGY

READY TO REACT

Reactivity is paramount in cars designed to astonish. The new TCT twin dry clutch with launch control optimizes gear changing and acceleration, while fun on the race track is guaranteed by simply flicking the intuitive D.N.A. selector to Race mode.

TCT

REACTION PROMPTNESS

The Alfa TCT dry twin-clutch transmission ensures the fastest possible gear shifts under all conditions and features an innovative Launch Control function to optimize vehicle systems and exploit all available acceleration.

ALFA D.N.A.

SELECT THE NEXT BEST THRILL

Alfa Romeo 4C is designed around the driver. The Alfa D.N.A. selector has three settings (Dynamic, Natural and All Weather) for adapting the car to the road conditions and the current driving style. What’s more, the exclusive Race mode is designed to further enhance the driving experience on the race track. Selecting the Dynamic position will cut out the stability control system and the ABS, handing full control of the car over to the driver. The full digital instrument panel with TFT display changes configuration to provide the information most pertinent to the specific Alfa D.N.A. setting.

PERFORMANCE

PERFORMANCE

ENGINEERED FOR UNPARALLELED SENSATIONS

The 4C's 1750 cc turbocharged power plant is based on Alfa Romeo’s state-of-the-art engine technology, empowered and improved to be even more aggressive and efficient.
This small yet amazing engine solution delivers unprecedented sporting performance, worthy of a supercar, while everything is engineered to deliver the purest Alfa Romeo emotion at the wheel: just drive it to believe it.

ENGINE

SMALL DISPLACEMENT, GREAT PERFORMANCE

The four-cylinder, direct injection, 240hp, 1750 Turbo Petrol engine, made entirely of aluminum, brings extraordinary performance with a peak torque of 350 Nm, 80% of which is available at 1700 rpm.  4C has a top speed in excess of 250 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.

SCAVENGING

TURBOCHARGED EMOTIONS

4C’s advanced scavenging technology maximizes torque at low engine speeds and delivers more power in response to driver input.
To implement the scavenging technology, the engine is also equipped with a new generation turbocharger and a pulse converter exhaust manifold.

AFTER RUN PUMP

A GENUINE SUPERCAR FEATURE

Like all top competition cars, 4C uses an automatic cool-down system to protect its turbocharger. Switching off the engine would normally cause the immediate stoppage of oil circulation, resulting in loss of lubrication capacity and possible damage to the engine. With the after-run-pump, the oil keeps circulating through the turbocharger until it has cooled.

DYNAMISM

DYNAMISM

IDEAL BALANCE, PERFECT PERFORMANCE

With its mid-engine configuration and extremely sophisticated suspension layout (superimposed wishbone up front, evolved McPherson on the rear), 4C is perfectly balanced and masters the road at any speed. The powerful braking system, with self-ventilating perforated discs and Brembo calipers on the front wheels, allows the 4C to stop from 100 km/h to 0 in just 36 meters.  4C also fits different diameter tyres on the front and rear, to ensure perfect grip on all types of roads and in any weather.

MATERIALS

MATERIALS

THE WEIGHT OF LIGHTNESS

Carbon fiber is the most high-tech material in automotive engineering. The chassis of 4C is a single carbon fiber body, weighing only 73 kilograms. The crankcase, the front and rear frames are all made of aluminum, combining solidity and extreme lightness. The outer body is made of SMC composite, a low-density material that combines lightness (20% lighter than steel) and dimensional stability comparable to steel and superior to aluminum. 

EFFICIENCY

EFFICIENCY

CONCENTRATED ENERGY

The total dry weight of 4C is only 934 kilograms, allowing it to reach one of the lowest power-to-weight ratios ever: less than 4 kg/hp. This means superior efficiency, while improving agility and responsiveness for an unbeatable driving experience.
