ALFA ROMEO 4C - FIRST OFFICIAL PICTURES
We get a first glimpse of the production 4C - and a power-to-weight figure, too
Gone is a little of the trinketry – much as you’d expect – but the 4C’s voluptuous shape remains largely – and thankfully – the same. In fact, in some places, the detail changes have improved things slightly – smaller taillights, for example, give the production 4C’s rump a slightly less boggle-eyed look than the concept’s.
Along with our first glimpse of the 4C, Alfa’s released a power-to-weight figure: 4kg/hp, which equates to 250hp/tonne. If rumblings in the press are correct, the 4C should weigh somewhere around the 950kg mark, which would give it a power figure of 237hp. However, if other rumblings are correct, the 4C’s price has inflated to a Cayman-rivalling £50,000 or so.
Either way, the 4C will make its debut at Geneva, which is when we'll finally get the full scoop. Watch this space!
