The Alfa Romeo 4C is the first mass production mid-engine sports car produced by Alfa Romeo that went on sale in 2013.
The major point to note in this car is its thorough pursuit of weight reduction and the resulting superior driving performance. The base structure is a carbon monocoque combined with an aluminium subframe. The extremely strong and lightweight monocoque, which only weighs 65 kg, is produced with pre-preg carbon fibre that involves a difficult and costly manufacturing process. Although the engine is the same turbocharged direct injection inline-4 cylinder 1,742 cc engine as the Giulietta, the cylinder block has been changed to aluminium, reducing its weight by an additional 22 kg. As a result, the dry weight of the Italian domestic model is extremely light, only weighing in at 895 kg in total.
The engine produces 236 BHP and a maximum torque of 35.7 kgfm, which is not incredibly impressive. However, its weight and combination with a 6-speed, dual clutch, 2-pedal transmission helps the car achieve a spectacular 0-100 km/h acceleration of 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 257 km/h.
With its characteristic mid-engine looks based on the historically famous Tipo 33/2 Stradale, this is a sports car that is fit to be called a small supercar.
In the 4C line-up, the launch of this model was commemorated with 1,000 limited edition cars. This car is equipped with special carbon headlight bezels, door mirrors and rear spoiler, as well as sports suspension and sports exhaust. As with the 4C, which was so popular its production could not meet the demand, the launch edition is said to have sold out almost immediately.
This car can be purchased in the Alfa Romeo section of Brand Central for 81,900 Credits. It also appears as one of the recommended cars in Arcade Mode.
