Geneva Motorshow 2015 - 18/03/2015
2015 was a remarkably interesting year for the Geneva motorshow with many special cars being launched. Alfa Romeo was no exception with the open-top “Spider” version of the lightweight Alfa Romeo 4C taking pride of place on the stand.
The Spider comes with an identical front end to the 4C Coupe, save for a new set of projector-style xenon headlamps. Other visual differences include pronounced buttresses, body-coloured engine cover complete with three heat extractors, and a subtle rear spoiler. Amazingly, the weight remains very similar.
The punchy and lightweight all-aluminium 1750 cc TBi engine is also the same as the Coupé, delivering 240 hp and 350 Nm of torque. It is capable of hitting 62mph in less than 4.5-seconds which matches the Coupe. It really is remarkable engineering to create this soft top variant with next to no impact on weight or performance. An exciting addition to the options list is the Akropovic titanium exhaust system which is not only of incredible quality but is said to provide even greater acoustic entertainment.
Alfa Romeo also announced that the 4C Coupe for all 2015MY vehicles now come with Alfa Hi-Fi sound system; luxury floor mats; and the option of a traditional tan leather interior
We can’t wait to see and hear the first Spiders on the UK roads.
