Alfa says the 'compact supercar' perfectly embodies the brand with Italian style, sporty performance and engineering excellence offering maximum driving satisfaction in total safety.

The coupé uses technologies and materials derived from the stunning 8C Competizione - carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive - and technologies from the latest Alfa Romeo models, but thoroughly developed to enhance the sports appeal of the new car.

The new 1750 Turbo Petrol engine features direct injection and an aluminium block and the sophisticated 'ALFA TCT' twin dry clutch transmission selector with Race mode.

Built in Modena, birthplace of the world's most famous sports cars, the Alfa 4C's production process integrates Alfa Romeo's design roles and Maserati's manufacturing functions with engineering and technological contributions from Italian worldwide leaders in the component industry for high-performance sports cars.

To design a car that is both exclusive and achievable for Alfa Romeo fans across the world, the Alfa 4C's designers focused on lightness and efficiency over greater horsepower, which would have impacted on the purchase and maintenance costs.

With a total 'dry' weight of just 895kg, 4C is one of the lightest cars in the world.
