A stunning presentation at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday saw the world première of the eagerly-awaited production version of the Alfa Romeo 4C, the ‘compact supercar’ and Peter Edwards was there to capture these first photographs.
Designed by Alfa Romeo and produced at the Maserati plant in Modena, the mid-engined rear-wheel drive coupé with two bucket seats will be available later this year and it will be the first car to mark the return of the brand to the United States and thus inaugurate Alfa Romeo’s global growth plan.
Derived directly from the concept which raised many eyebrows in wonder at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, the Alfa Romeo 4C uses technologies and materials derived from the 8C Competizione - carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive - and technologies from the latest standard models from Alfa Romeo currently on the market, but thoroughly developed to enhance the sports appeal of the new car to the full.
There will be more details here soon and a full report in the April edition of Alfa Romeo Driver.
