In the Turin area is the season of prototypes testing of the Alfa Romeo 4C. The italian car news website "Quattroruote" has published some spy shots of the definitive version. The photos confirm the extreme similarity with the ultra-compact concept car. Front and tail have no new elements, even if the tail lights are too hidden to allow a full review, but the side air intake now has a simpler and backward form, which simplifies the design of the area that complements the door.
Maybe it will debut in Geneva. The technical contents will shine the eyes of those who for years were waiting for a Alfa Romeo truly revolutionary carbon fiber chassis, 1750 Tbi central transverse position engine, TCT dual-clutch gearbox , reduced weight and, of course, rear-wheel drive. For a long time Sergio Marchionne describes the 4C as the perfect weapon to relaunch the Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S. market for this presentation of the production model is poised between the Geneva Motor Show next March, and the Detroit, already in January.
Made in Modena. Later (much later) the coupe version could be unveiled a targa version with removable roof, transformation facilitated by the extreme rigidity of the monocoque, without adding heavy structural reinforcements. Waiting to know the last specifications and the official price, which will have a very important role in its success, we already know that the 4C will be assembled in the Maserati factory in Modena.
