NEWS: Alfa 4C Geneva Debut
Alfa Romeo’s gorgeous, exciting compact, rear-drive, mid-engined, two-seater supercar will be set to make its début at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show in which year. Alfa says: “The brand-new Alfa Romeo 4C will be the result of experience built up with the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione product produced within the Maserati plant in Modena as well as the idea will be available for purchase in 2013, marking the return of the Italian brand to the United States.” the idea’s tiny – less than 4 metres in length, 0 cm wide, 118 cm high as well as using a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres. the idea will be powered by a brand-new (revised variation of the Quadrifoglio Verde variation of the Giulietta) 4 cylinder 1750 Turbo Petrol all-aluminium engine, with trick twin scroll turbo as well as as well as a revolutionary scavenging control system in which gets rid of any turbo lag. the idea will also have Alfa’s TCT twin clutch automatic transmission, using a brand-new Alfa ‘DNA’ ECU/gearbox mapping selector using a brand-new Race mode. The chassis meanwhile will be 100% carbon fibre with load-bearing as well as structural function, so we can expect the idea to be light, using a weight to power ratio less than 4 kg/HP.
The 4C name will be an acronym – “drawing its inspiration coming from the brand’s glorious past, projecting the values of technology as well as emotions into the future. Indeed, the idea refers to Alfa Romeo’s great sporting tradition: the acronyms 8C as well as 6C within the 1930s as well as 1940s distinguished cars – both racing as well as road – fitted with the powerful ‘eight cylinders’ as well as the innovative ‘six cylinders’, confirming in its design structure as well as construction the goal of achieving the power/weight ratio of an authentic supercar, less than 4 kg/HP, yet focusing not merely on the maximum power delivered, yet on limiting the weight to guarantee maximum agility as well as top performance. To in which end, the Alfa Romeo 4C uses technologies as well as materials derived coming from super sports cars (including the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione) – carbon fibre, aluminium, rear-wheel drive – as well as technologies coming from the latest standard types coming from Alfa Romeo, yet updated to enhance the sports appeal of the brand-new car even further. in which will be demonstrated by the brand-new 1750 Turbo Petrol all-aluminium engine with direct injection, the sophisticated Alfa TCT twin dry clutch transmission as well as the Alfa DNA selector with the unprecedented Race mode.”
Looking forward to in which… you? RWD turbo fun. yet will be the idea a supercar, using a 1.8-litre engine? Even with those looks as well as all the trick carbon, electro goodies? You decide…
