Official Preview: 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C (Production Concept)
The 4C uses an evolution of the 1,750cc (1.75-liters) turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde. It features a new aluminum block and specifically-designed intake and exhaust manifolds, as well as direct injection and dual continuous valve timing.
Like in the concept, the production 4C has a mid-engined configuration, with power transferred to the rear wheels via the TCT twin dry clutch transmission. It features an auto as well as a sequential mode, with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
The 4C, which will go on sale later this year and mark Alfa Romeo’s return to the U.S. market, will be manufactured at Maserati’s plant.
