alfa romeo 4c us spec 13

Alfa Romeo has released a slew of new images of its 4C Spider in its US-spec form – the droptop made its debut in Detroit earlier this year and arrives in North American showrooms later in the summer, priced from US$63,900 (RM240,000).

Like its 4C coupe sibling, the Spider is powered by the familiar mid-mounted all-aluminium ‘1750’ turbocharged four-pot with 237 hp and 350 Nm, and the TBi is mated to a TCT seven-speed dry twin-clutch transmission and an Alfa DNA driving mode selector system. Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 4.1 seconds and a 258 km/h top speed.

When it arrives in the US, the 4C Spider will be available in seven exterior colours, including Rosso Competizione Tri-coat (red), Madreperla White Tri-coat and a yellow called Giallo Prototipo. Six interior combination choices abound, and these include black, red and a two-tone combi of Tobacco and black.

Six wheel designs are available, four of them new for the application here, and the 4C can be specified with either a standard or a race exhaust as well as an Akrapovic dual-mode titanium exhaust system.

Also on the options list is a Track Package, which adds high-performance shock absorbers with larger front- and rear-sway bars as well as Pirelli P-Zero “AR Racing” tyres. The pack also throws in a flat-bottom steering wheel with microfibre inserts, carbon-fibre exterior mirrors and a carbon-fibre gauge cluster bezel, plus the availability of black leather performance seats with microfibre inserts and red or yellow accent stitching.
