The most important Alfa Romeo for decades
Just under 4 metres long, 2 metres wide and 118 cm high. The design choices of the Alfa Romeo 4C are just as bold as its dimensions. Rather than use extreme power, the decision was taken to minimise weight instead. This challenge underlies the design of every component of the car.
The result is amazing: an unladen weight of under 895 kg propelled by 240 BHP, giving a weight to power ratio of under 4 kg/HP. A figure that promises genuine supercar agility and performance. This impressively low weight has been achieved by using ultra-light materials like carbon fibre, aluminium and composites, all chosen for maximum dynamic efficiency. Fast, powerful and evolved. On the 4C, advanced materials combined with Alfa Romeo’s innovative processes and values have created a true concentration of efficiency.
Sport suspensions, self-ventilated brake discs and different diameter tyres: the Alfa Romeo 4C boasts an advanced ride control system, conceived to keep weight down to a minimum.
The suspension adopts race-derived technical solutions to optimise performance and deliver unrivalled driving pleasure. At the front, the Alfa Romeo 4C features a double wishbone configuration that gives direct and unfiltered feedback from the road. At the rear, advanced MacPherson suspension ensures superb road holding and driving fun, even in the most extreme manoeuvres. Both front and rear suspension systems are made from aluminium and high strength steel. The braking system is designed for high performance race track use. The perforated, self-ventilated front discs and Brembo calipers take the car from 100 to 0 km/h in only 36 metres. And to ensure maximum grip and prevent skidding under all conditions, the 4C is fitted with different diameter tyres, 17”-18” or 18”-19”, with the larger size on the rear for the best possible handling.
