Engine & Performance
The most amazing feature about this car is its turbo charged engine. Precision engineering and design have enabled the engineers to build a new generation turbo charger. The 4C comes with an inline 4 engine that produces 240 horsepower and 259 lbs ft of torque.
In addition, it includes a pulse convertor exhaust that works by using pressure waves to enhance the torque at lower engine speeds.
The air turbine is constructed using micro-cast steel and can easily function properly at temperatures well over 1000 degrees.
A turbo charger isnâ€™t complete without the right gear box. All that power is useless if the gearbox isnâ€™t engineered perfectly to complement the engine. The 4C comes with an Alfa TCT gearbox with a dual dry clutch.
Whatâ€™s great is that it comes with improved controlling software that ensures you make quick gear shifts in all conditions. Once you let go of the brakes, the on board system automatically controls the traction and the gearbox, and increases power accordingly.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is compact, with a length of approximately 4 meters, and a wheel base of around 2.4 meters. It does have the specifications of a compact car, but even with these features, its dynamics are properly confirmed by a weight to power ratio of 4 kg/HP.
The 2014 4C is made up of 25% carbon fiber, which guarantees maximum efficiency and durability. This material is able to handle the stress even when the car is driven at high speeds, and nevertheless the chassis is 154 lbs lighter(70 kg).
The two words that can best describe the interior of this car are comfort and usability. Besides being exquisitely designed to incorporate different luxurious features, there has also been a lot of importance placed on practicality.
