The main claim of Alfa Romeo in the Geneva Motor Show 2015 It comes from the hand of an Alfa Romeo 4C Spider that will be shown to the public for the first time in Europe, doing so with the specifications for the old continent, which implies, among other changes, the appearance of arachnids multi LED optics.
Low, very low and with a spectacular lateral silhouette and the added charm now of being able to do without its roof to make driving this Italian an even more exceptional experience and yes, what you are seeing is a European version of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider with traditional design headlamps …
… and is that Alfa Romeo will offer these bi-xenon optics as an option, thus being able to dispense with the already characteristic (and controversial) optics of small LEDs.
In addition to these optics, standard in the North American market, we find 3 different types of exhaust, including an escape signed by Akrapovic with central outlet, as we could see in the first prototype.
Beyond the obvious absence of roof Alfa Romeo has introduced few aesthetic changes, keeping intact the gasoline mechanics of 4 cylinders and 1,750 cc supercharged with 240 hp delivered to the rear axle, with a TCT transmission for your gearbox.
Talking about benefits implies mentioning a 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 257 km / h, although the best of the Alfa Romeo 4C comes from the hand of the sensations that it is capable of transmitting.
Of course we cannot forget about your carbon fiber chassis, naked, visible as soon as you enter the cabin and in perfect harmony with the aluminum subframe on which the powertrains articulate.
Thanks to this monocoque chassis structural differences between coupe and convertible are minimal, they point from the mark.
In these new images published by Alfa Romeo of the 4C Spider we also find the interior upholstery in “tobacco” brown, an upholstery that in the initial launch with the version for the United States we were warned that it would come later.
As with the Coupé, a “Pack Track” which includes a new suspension, larger stabilizer bars, new 18-inch aluminum wheels on the front axle and 19 on the rear axle with Pirelli P-Zero “AR Racing” tires, new carbon fiber details and the choice of black leather seats with red or yellow stitching.
Its production is also carried out at the Maserati plant in Modena.
