2017 ALFA ROMEO 4C COUPE
DNA System With Race Mode
Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is designed around the driver. Overall performance is superbly enhanced with numerous features designed to hone and improve each trip. Four-mode Alfa DNA gives drivers the ability to create a customized vehicle experience according to driving conditions or desired vehicle responsiveness. Choose from its Dynamic, Natural, All-Weather or Race modes which make changes in throttle response, shifting speeds and traction control for a driving experience tailored to any situation.
Natural elements make up the most high-tech materials in automotive engineering. The monocoque of the 4C Coupe is a single Carbon Fiber body similar to that of a supercar, while its crankcase and its front and rear frames combine the strength, rigidity and lightweight properties of aluminum. Sheet Molded Compound (SMC) is used for the outer body and is 20% lighter and more stable than steel — and also resists corrosion.
Twin Clutch Transmission With Launch Control
The 4C Coupe is equipped with an Alfa TCT 6-speed automatic transmission with a twin clutch and paddle shifters, a solution that combines the instant power of a sequential shift with all the convenience of an automatic. Pressing the brake pedal while fully pushing the accelerator pedal and triggering the left paddle on the steering wheel activates Launch Control. The moment the brake pedal is released, the system automatically controls the transmission, traction and power to maximize acceleration.
At the heart of a 4C Coupe is a 237 hp, 258 lb-ft torque turbocharged inline 4, with a top speed of 160 mph and a weight-to-power ratio of 10.4 lbs/hp. A figure that not only promises genuine supercar agility and performance—it delivers.
The success Alfa Romeo has enjoyed over the years can be attributed to our long dedication to making the most efficient use of both power and weight. This challenge underlies the design of every component of the car. The latest outcome is amazing: a curb weight of under 2,500 lbs propelled by 237 hp, giving a weight-to-power ratio of 10.4:1.
A combination of sport suspensions, self-ventilated brake discs and different-diameter tires: the 4C Coupe boasts an advanced ride control system, giving every driver extra street smarts. The braking system is designed for high-performance racetrack use. The perforated, self-ventilated front discs and Brembo calipers offer supreme stopping power.
A Culture Of Style
The 4C Coupe continues an Alfa Romeo tradition of performance-oriented lines and proportions. Inspired by the 1967 33 Stradale, considered by many as one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the 4C Coupe is just as shapely, and offers the classic Alfa Romeo V-shaped “plunging neckline” front grille. Front and rear overhangs are dramatically short, and dimensions are aerodynamically and dynamically optimized.
While the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe exterior strongly hints at the gripping performance experience that lies ahead, getting behind the wheel will confirm even the highest of expectations. This is an interior that takes into account every aspect of driver needs, putting innovative, vital controls within easy reach. This is the kind of sports car that works with you to produce the most thrilling ride possible.
