We expected exited the final version of 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C, but nobody could predict that the first European version will be this variant of the model. As we were able to see in Chicago Auto Show, the first 4C model is something like the Italian version of it.
It was made as an open-roof sporty car, in a unique blue color that will obviously be a trademark of this model. However, including all details that point at its Italian origin, there are low chances that the manufacturer will offer something similar to US buyers.
- The model is cute modernly designed sporty car.
- The car is lightweight, providing speed and better performances.
- There are not more than one engine options.
There are great details that we saw on 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C and which were not available in the base model. Since the model is a small, sporty car, it is lowered to the ground, with bunches on the wheels and wide air intake below the sharp but unique front end.
The rear end is sporty designed, with the short rear end and black diffuser on the bottom, decorated with two exhausts in the center. The Italian edition has also decoration in shape of the Italian flag on the rear bumpers. Almost the same shape as the rear end in Jaguar F-Type.
The cabin inside of 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C is not much different from the cabins in sporty cars we used to see nowadays. It includes tight and a little claustrophobic atmosphere inside, but design and equipment are on the highest level in this car.
The most important is that the model will not be equipped as we used to see in Italian vehicles. The manufacturer obviously has put everything to make the model attractive and sporty.
The engine in 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C will be the same as on the base model. It means that the model got 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit with 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes matched with six-speed dual-clutch gearbox driven by rear wheels.
Thanks to the strong engine, but also the weight of only 2,487 pounds, it increases the speed of 4.1 seconds. The manufacturer has limited the speed on 160 mph. It could beat the Porsche Cayman in speed.
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Release Date and Price
Although very popular in Europe, 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C for some reasons have never been popular that much in the US. The last year model has been sold in a very small number of copies, while this year started with only 7 sold models in January.
So, it is more likely that the model will be accepted in Europe again, so the US market will have a fewer number of the units. As they said, only 15 units are available in the US currently. However, it is likely that this Italian version will not be found in the US at all.
When it comes to the price, the price of the version that we have seen here is $71,000 which includes a special Misano Blue Metallic color, available only with this model, and open roof option. Base model should cost at least for $5,000 less.
