After Geneva, the magnificent Alfa Romeo 4C Concept stops in UK, at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed, on its way to become a production model.
The 4C has been designed with specs of a full-blooded sportscar in mind. The 4C is a two-seater, mid-engined, rear-wheel drive coupé with drop-dead gorgeous looks, lightweight body, and a powerful 200bhp1750 TBi 4 cylinder petrol engine coupled with the new automatic Alfa TCT twin dry clutch transmission. The car has a top speed 155mph, kerb weight under 850kgs, 0-62 mph in under 5 seconds, and a power-to-weight ratio lower than 4kg per bhp.
The reason it’s so great is that it’s built just for driving fun! And above all, it’s Alfa Romeo, which in car terms is the equivalent of Angelina Jolie.
Other Alfa Romeo debuts at the Speed festival include the updated Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde, together with the Alfa Giulietta Cloverleaf and the Alfa 159 Sportwagon. There will also be some legendary classics, including Fangio’s Alfa 6C 3000CM, which alongside the Alfetta 159, will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Fangio’s historic 1951 Formula One World Championship title, as well as the Alfa 6C 1750GS, Alfa 750 Competizione and the Alfa 33 TT 12. What’ more, spectators also get to see the Alfa’s 8C Spider as it works its way up the Goodwood hill.
