Engine & Performance
This mid-engine concept car with rear-wheel drive and 2 seats boasts an all-new 4-cylinder 1.75 liter turbo petrol engine paired with a direct fuel injection and the revolutionary Alfa Romeo TCT automatic transmission, known in its segment for its high speed of activation and limited weight. This ensures excellent performance.
In addition, the DNA selector of the new 4C Spider Concept includes a fourth setting called "Race" that adds to the three modes Natural, All-Weather and Dynamic available on the latest generation of Alfa Romeo cars, for the ultimate driving experience, which is enhanced by a special suspension set-up.
The sleek exterior design of the 4C Spider Concept was developed by the Alfa Romeo Style Center and stays true to their "functional beauty" motto. Complementing the distinctive carbon windscreen ring and roll-bar cover, is the iridescent 3-Layer Glossy White livery, which is exclusive to this preview of this Spider convertible; it emphasizes the finely sculpted and sublime surfaces.
The cutting-edge clamshell headlights, imposing Pirelli tires, 18-inch front and 19-inch rear alloy rims brings the car together seamlessly.
The interior design of the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Concept is characterized by the eye-catching carbon fiber found in the central cell that allows for proper weight distribution.
In addition, the interior features leather upholstery that reflects the enduring tradition of exquisite Italian craftsmanship we've come to expect from AR.
