2014 Alfa Romeo 4C gets detailed

Alfa Romeo has recently revealed full details about the 2014 4C, just ahead of its European launch next month.

Aimed at driving purists, the entry-level Essential model comes equipped with features such as a digital instrument cluster, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and fabric seats. The car also comes with grey brake calipers, a dual exhaust system and 17- / 18-inch alloy wheels.

Well that’s enough, the Racing Pack adds a sport steering wheel (with leather and microfiber inserts), a sportier exhaust system, a race-tuned suspension, 18- and 19-inch wheels covered with AR Racing tires. There is another Luxury Pack which has leather and microfiber sports seats and Bi-LED headlights with carbon fiber surrounds.

Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that would generate 240 HP (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. It is well connected to a dual-clutch transmission that enables the sports car to achieve the 0-100 kmph sprint in just 4.5 seconds and comes with a top speed of 258 kmph (160 mph). Talking about fuel efficiency, the car would return average 6.8 L/100km (34.5 mpg US / 41.5 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 157 g/km.

Alfa Romeo will build 3,500 units annually out of which only 1,000 have been earmarked for Europe.
