Alfa Romeo 4C Will Also Get Racing, Stradale and Roadster Versions
Alfa Romeo will be unveiling the production version 4C Sports Coupe in March at the Geneva Motor Show, but a selected number of dealers have already learned pretty much all there is to know about it. We will start with the bad news: while previous rumors suggested that the 1.7-liter turbocharged inline-four engines will deliver about 300 horsepower, it has now been confirmed that the 4C will, in fact, deliver a total of 237 horsepower.
Still, because its low weight - about 1,875 pounds in the concept version - the 4C will be a strong competitor for models like the Porsche Cayman.
Now for the good news: Alfa Romeo is going to also unveil two more-powerful versions: a track-only "Racing" version and a road-legal Stradale version, both delivering a total of 266 horsepower.
Alfa Romeo will produce a total of 2,000 units, which will include coupe, roadster, Racing and Stradale versions. Prices will be kept in the same area as the Porsche Cayman, so, it will be priced somewhere in the $50k area.
