We have already looks extensively at the hugely desirable Alfa Romeo 4C Spider in press material. Now let’s check out the car live during its debut ceremony at the Detroit Motor Show and see it for what it really is.
Of course, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider was always going to be a hit, since the hardtop version met with nothing but praise from the public and the press alike. The Spider is actually a much nicer car, not just because it offers alfresco motoring, but also because it features nicer styling details.
The best feature of the Spider is its headlights, which unlike the ones on the hardtop are pretty normal. You can still order those “halo” lights with carbon bezels and LEDs, but you have to be mad to do that. The Spider also features a unique roll bar, redesigned engine cover with functional vents, and revised pillars where the removable top secures itself in place.
The mechanical parts of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider are the same as in the coupe, meaning you get a 240-hp 1,750cc turbocharged four-pot and a dual-clutch transmission, plus Alfa’s DNA system. The Spider is 10 kg heavier though, which isn’t really perceptible in terms of its effects on the performance.
