Serial production of the new Alfa Romeo 4C sports car will start this year, although it was reported earlier that the project will be delayed indefinitely by the financial difficulties of concern Fiat.
Also the car will appear on the United States market, where Italian brand returns after a twenty-year break.
In Europe, the Alfa Romeo 4C coupe will be available in the second half of this year, and its production will be organized at the Maserati factory in the Italian city of Modena and will start in May.
Appearance and dimensions of the new rear-wheel drive 2-seater sports car will be the most “sketched” with the concept, which was introduced in 2011-th year.
Presumably, coupe Alfa Romeo 4C will be equipped with 1.75-liter turbocharged petrol unit capacity of approximately 300 horsepower (initially planned 235 hp) and 6 -step robotised transmission with double clutch.
On acceleration from zero to 100 km / h the car will go for about five seconds.
The body of the new sports car is made of carbon fiber-reinforced materials, which are manufactured on the latest technologies.
The weight of the Alfa Romeo 4C will be about 800 kg.
In addition to the 4C coupe Italians are going to offer the North American market crossover and sedan Giulia (the same platform lies in the Dodge Dart basis).
However, these new items will appear in the US only in 2018-2019-th year.
