Alfa Romeo 4C Concept 30.08.2011

Fiat has confirmed a new model will be built by Maserati in Modena, Italy alongside the Quattroporte and GranTurismo starting in May 2013. It wasn't confirmed officially, but company sources have confirmed the identity of the mystery is the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C.

The new halo model was previewed in concept form (pictured) initially at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011 before an updated version was unveiled later in the year at Frankfurt.

It featured a mid-positioned 1.8 liter turbocharged engine that generated at least 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp) and had a kerb weight of 850 kg (1870 lbs).

Upon launch, we should expect the rear-wheel-drive two-seater coupe to achieve a top speed in excess of 250 kph (155 mph) while the 0-100kph (0-62mph) time should be less than 5 seconds.

If the brand ever completes its belated return to the US market, we should expect the 4C to be part of its product line-up. There is even talk that it could celebrate its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

The new Alfa 4C will target a MSRP of around €50,000 in Europe and the company intend to shift up to 2,500 units annually.

Soo, that`s the car they wanted to introduce as a little 200 plus racer coming in at 35,000 Euro. Glad we cleared THAT up.

it will be reliable. It's 2012 and Rolls Royces, Bentleys & even Jaguars have become reliable.
