The new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider combines the pleasure of open-air motoring with the sporting and minimalist character of the multi-award winning 4C Coupé. Designed by the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, this intriguing two-seater, rear-wheel drive, mid-engine 4C Spider is the latest confirmation of excellence for this Italian brand in a sector which has recognised some of its models as among the most beautiful in world automobile history.
It is now down to the 4C Spider to uphold and carry forward the concept inaugurated in 2007 with the prototype 8C Competition and developed with other extraordinary vehicles such as the 8C Spider (2008), the 4C Coupé (2013), and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Concept presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014. The highest expression of Alfa Romeo’s exclusive binomial of “functional beauty”, the new open-top features a seductive Made-in-Italy “cladding” enclosing a carbon fibre monocoque that takes its inspiration from F1 racing cars and makes for an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 138 HP/l.
The advanced technology, which includes a 1750cc all-aluminium turbocharged direct injection engine with intercooler and dual CVVT, ensures a supercar performance: top speed of 257 km/h, 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, 1.1 g lateral acceleration, and 1.25 g deceleration peaks when braking.
