2011 Alfa Romeo 4C Concept



Alfa Romeo 4C Concept made its debut at the 81st Geneva International Motor Show. This compact “supercar” which represents the true essence of a sports car, according to the brand’s values: performance, Italian style and technical excellence aimed at maximum driving pleasure in total safety. The new concept presents the classic formula of the two-seater, rear-wheel drive coupĂ© with its engine at the centre, a length of approximately 4 metres and a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres: dimensions which serve both to emphasise the compact size of the car and to accentuate its agility. Distinguished by its graceful and clean external lines, the same principles are also applied to the inside, with the Concept’s specific on-board design maintaining features and devices which directly reflect the car’s sporting spirit. On the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept technology and materials derived from the 8C Competizione find a home – carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive – and technology derived from Alfa Romeo models currently on sale: the 1750 turbo petrol engine with direct injection, the “Alfa TCT” twin dry clutch transmission and the Alfa DNA dynamic control selector. Quite simply, this vehicle screams Alfa. Its sports car soul creates a unique driving sensation, both on the road and when racing, where its velocity and transverse acceleration become even more demanding.
