If you want a hand-built, lightweight, hard-core performance car akin to the no-longer-available Lotus Elise, check out the Alfa Romeo 4C. Thanks to its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and tidy size, this 2-seater appeals to those who appreciate the less-is-more mantra.” — Kelley Blue Book
With its turbocharged mid-engine layout and high-effort controls, the 4C commands a driver’s respect and delivers a high sensation of speed. When driven in its sweet spot, the 4C is rewarding and feels like a modern classic.” — Edmunds

2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Performance

Race-Inspired Performance

Bred from Alfa Romeo race cars, the 4C Spiders boast razor-sharp handling and thrilling performance. Rocket from 0-60 in just 4.1 seconds with the 1.7L turbocharged 237 horsepower 4 cylinder engine. A blend of sport-tuned suspensions, massive self-ventilated cross-drilled brakes, and D.N.A. selectable drive modes produce track-inspired thrills. The 4C Spider comes equipped with an Alfa TCT 6-speed automatic transmission with quick, precise shifts. Launch Control actively manages transmission shifting, traction, and power to maximize power off the line.

2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Interior

Handcrafted in Italy

Every Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is assembled by hand in Modena, Italy. Each expert technician must undergo 500 hours of training dedicated to meeting the impeccable standards set by Alfa Romeo. Fine Italian leather, natural wood trims, and hand-laid authentic carbon fiber combine beauty and strength inside the cabin of the 4C Spider. Details like the flat-bottom race-inspired steering wheel, angled instrumentation and controls, along with aluminum pedals highlight the driver-centric focus on the interior.

Lightweight Strength

In collaboration with racing chassis designers, Alfa Romeo designed a Carbon Fiber Monocoque Chassis for the 4C Spider. This hand-laid carbon fiber is three times stronger than conventional steel and is seven times lighter. For the outer body, Sheet Molded Compound (SMC) is used and offers corrosion resistance along with a 20% weight reduction. The end result is a curb weight of just under 2,500 lb for the 4C Spider. Lightweight chassis paired with a rear-wheel-drive, mid-engined layout produces driving thrills both on and off the track.
