Alpha-Romeo 4C Junior - more info
As Fiat did not have any agresive car for some years it has decided that is time to build some competitors for Mini Cooper S, Renault Clio RS, Volkswagen Polo GTI. And the big surprise is coming from Alfa Romeo.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Junior will be build on the same platform as the Fiat Grande Punto, with some probable changes on both suspensions and engines: it is almost taken for granted the use of a supercharged engine, a 1.4 150 hp one, while the top version could be powered by a new 1.8 JTB direct injection engine, which develops around 220 hp.
There is nothing sure about the date of this new model: it might come with the new 149, but others says that it might debut in 2009.
