AlfaRomeo 4C Spider: groundbreaking Italian style
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider name recalls the brand’s great sporting tradition: the acronyms 8C and 6C in the 1930s and 1940s distinguished racing and road cars fitted with powerful eight- and six-cylinder engines. Like the award-winning 4C Coupe, the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider model’s designation is a return to “the great Alfa Romeos” and continues this tradition. It is a masterpiece of groundbreaking technology and seductive Italian style: Formula 1 inspired carbon fiber monocoque chassis that enables an incredible power-to-weight ratio, advanced engine technologies delivering an impressive 136 horsepower-per-liter and variable-valve timing that enable supercar-level performance. At only 236 pounds, the highly exotic carbon fiber monocoque chassis of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider delivers a material performance that is three-times stronger and seven-times lighter than steel. Thanks to its mid-engine layout, advanced technology and compact size, the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider demonstrates its precision, agility and performance credentials with a top speed of 160 miles per hour (mph), 0-to-60 mph acceleration blasts in an estimated 4.1-seconds, 1.1 g of lateral acceleration and 1.25 g of maximum braking deceleration.
The all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider’s cockpit is inspired from racing: seating for two, panoramic views and purpose built with only the essential driving components stylistically integrated. For an upscale look, the fully wrapped premium-leather interior with accent stitching is standard on the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, as are unique carbon fiber vent surrounds. Highlighting the use of advanced technology is a 7-inch full-color driver information display (DID) cluster, which displays vehicle information through high-impact graphics to keep the driver focused on the road, or track, ahead. New to the Alfa Romeo 4C lineup is the addition of an Alpine premium radio designed for audiophiles, with multiple connectivity and media options.
Adding to the excitement of owning an Alfa Romeo are the personalization options that each client can select. The 4C Spider comes in seven exterior colors, including the all-new Giallo (yellow) and six interior combinations, which include two seat material choices: Black or Red leather, or Black racing leather with microfiber inserts, both enhanced by Red or Yellow accent stitching.Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider combines two Italian excellences – the performance engineering of Alfa Romeo and the craftsmanship of Maserati manufacturing.
