The Alfa Romeo 4C is seen in this new official video which gives us a look at some of the design details and technical specs of the model that debuted to great acclaim at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Talked of as being the model to take Alfa back to the US, there are no real confirmations as to its official production debut.
What we do know is that the Alfa 4C has a 1750 TBi centrally-placed engine, a Dallara carbonfibre chassis, rear-wheel drive and a dual-clutch transmission. We do get to see the two-seater 4C take in a few track laps at the Balocco circuit, but the video is more about beauty than a detailed look at how it drives on the track.
Still, beautiful it is and what’s more, the possibility of the Alfa 4C on the market at a competitive price opens up opportunities for the Italian brand with a new model, getting back to its sporty roots. A Maserati version of the 4C has also been rumoured, as has an open-top Abarth 4C Spider, but we’d like to see Fiat get behind this project first, and get the Alfa 4C on the market.
