Entering an Alfa Romeo 4C means entering the world of motorsport. As with the exterior, everything on the inside has a precise function: The 4C dispenses with the superfluous and provides only the essentials for superior driving performance.
To start with, the unique body cell is made from bare carbon fibre. Inside, competition seats guarantee a comfortable but correct racing posture. The seats incorporate a reinforced composite structure and special lightweight padding. The upholstery is in either technical fabric or leather.
On the 4C, absolutely everything expresses the racing spirit of Alfa Romeo. The steering wheel is moulded at the bottom. The dashboard is made from a thermoformed shell like those found on limited edition supercars. And the controls are all oriented towards the driver to give complete control of the car. The instrument panel graphics have a high visual impact and are clearly inspired by those of sports motorcycles and competition cars. Aluminium pedals and heel guards form the last details of a true sporting character.
No concessions to style for its own sake, to convenience or to any desire to surprise. The essence of the Alfa Romeo 4C is simple: pure performance. Every single design decision was taken with this in mind.
The heart of the beast, a centrally mounted engine, is clearly visible through the back window.
Every other element in the car starts from here. The round rear light clusters blend into muscular rear wings that house the air intakes for the intercooler. The energy-packed and dynamic sides taper into a perfect front profile for the headlights, inside which two V-shaped lines dive down to the shield-shaped grille and Alfa Romeo symbol.
The result is a car that conveys the pure spirit of motorsport. Every structural element has been conceived to fulfil a specific aerodynamic function, and to help create the downforce needed to ensure maximum grip under fast cornering.
Alfa Romeo decided to produce the 4C in Modena, and set up a dedicated unit inside the town’s Maserati works. The focus is on evolved technology and top quality craftsmanship, a combination that leads to the production of cars that are truly unique in technical solutions and attention to detail.
On the 4C assembly line, people make the difference. The expert technicians dedicated to the production of this new Alfa Romeo have undergone 500 hours of special training and have also followed the last product development process for 10 months. They all have an enviable level of in-depth technical knowledge as a result. Assembly technicians follow every phase of the process personally and, at the end of the line, perform rigorous quality control tests to ensure that all components function perfectly. The finished car is then handed over to expert test drivers for dynamic performance testing under a wide range of conditions. Only then is a new Alfa Romeo 4C declared ready to take to the road.
The Alfa Romeo 4C was designed by Alfa Romeo and is produced in the Maserati plant in Modena, but Italian automotive excellence can be found in every single element of the car.
The biggest Italian names in the sector, already suppliers for the biggest supercar manufacturers in the world, played their part in creating the Alfa Romeo 4C:
That’s why the Alfa Romeo 4C represents Italian manufacturing excellence in the automotive sector.
