US and Canada Will Get 86 Alfa Romeo Dealers
Alfa Romeo’s arrival in North America has moved one step closer to becoming a reality after the Italian automaker announced the first 86 dealerships in the U.S. and Canada. The announcement is the latest piece of evidence that the company’s long-awaited return to North America will finally go on as scheduled.
All in all, 33 states in the U.S. will receive an Alfa Romeo dealership. Of those 33, California received the most number of dealerships at 12 with Texas a close second with 10 and Florida with nine. Other major auto markets also received a handful of dealerships, including Michigan (5), Ohio (4), Virginia (4), and Illinois (3). On the flip side, New York received only one dealership, which is a little surprising to say the least.
As for Canada, the entire country was given four dealerships, including two in Quebec and one for both Ontario and Vancouver.
Alfa Romeo is expected to announce more franchises later this year. But for now, these 86 dealers will get first dibs on selling new Alfa Romeo models in their market, including the 4C and the limited edition 4C Launch Edition.
Get ready, North America, Alfa Romeo is set to return!

Why It Matters
It matters because the Alfa Romeo 4C’s arrival is getting near. A lot of people in the U.S. and Canada have waited a long time for the sports car to hit these shores. Now that dealerships are prepping to sell the 4C, the sports car is finally well within our reach.
The announcement of these dealerships also gives us a chance to find out where the nearest Alfa dealer is relative to our locations — I know mine is about an hour away in Orlando. If you live in California, there are a lot of dealerships to choose from. But if you’re in Hawaii, it’s going to be really difficult to buy a 4C.

Alfa Romeo first unveiled the production version of the 4C at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. now with a little more than a year since the production 4C’s debut, the sports car is nearing final preparations before making that voyage across the Atlantic.
The 4C is powered by a new turbocharged, 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 240 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque between 2,100 and 4,000 rpm. 80 percent of the torque is available from 1,800 rpm, making it that much more performance-oriented. The engine is also mated to an innovative Alfa TCT twin-dry-clutch, six-speed automatic transmission. Taken together, the 4C is more than capable of hitting 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds to go with a top speed of 160 mph.
We’ve all waited long enough, so it’s refreshing to finally hear specific locations where we can buy the 4C when it arrives. For the U.S. market the 4C is rumored to be priced at a little over $50,000.
