value writeup

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider competes with sports cars like the Porsche Boxster and Cayman, as well as the Lotus Evora. Rather than try to outmuscle its competitors, Alfa Romeo has instead opted for an approach centered on finesse and balance. With its ultra-lightweight carbon fiber monocoque construction, the 4C is among the lightest cars sold in the United States. The mid-engine design and well-balanced approach means it's an excellent handler and one of the best-looking sports cars available.

model highlights

The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C is powered by a 1.7L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mounted behind the cockpit. The engine produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While that may seem rather modest for a sports car of this caliber, Alfa Romeo claims that the 4C is still capable of a 0-60 time in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 160 mph. The only transmission available is a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters.

The 4C utilizes various exotic construction techniques, including a structure composed of carbon fiber and aluminum as well as composite body panels. The engine is an all-aluminum design and as a result, the car's total weight is below 2,500 pounds.

The 4C tends to eschew luxury features in its quest to keep weight down, but there are limits to this philosophy, and the 4C still comes equipped with powered windows and mirrors, air conditioning, a 7-inch thin-film transistor instrument cluster with a lateral acceleration G-meter and a 4-speaker sound system with USB and audio input jacks.

Options include bi-xenon headlights, a front fascia with carbon fiber vents, an Alpine premium audio system with subwoofer, battery charger, bigger wheels, racing seats, a leather and Microfiber steering wheel, race tuned suspension and an Akrapovic dual mode center exhaust. Additionally, there are several option packages available on the 4C. New and exclusive for 2020 is the limited-edition Italia with only 15 examples being hand crafted. The Italia's special standard features include an exclusive misano blue metallic paint, piano black exterior trim, dedicated graphics, dashboard insert, and console numbered plate. A bright package includes a chrome license plate frame, silver valve stem covers, and wheel locks. The carbon fiber interior trim group bathes the cabin with carbon fiber air vents, cluster and instrument panel bezels, and shift bezel.
