2014 Alfa Romeo 4C to debute soon

2014 Alfa Romeo 4C  will debute soon at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show next month.

Unlike the Alfa 8C(limited  to 500 vehicles), the 4C is a smaller mass-production model, having a mid-engine rear-wheel-drive layout. It will be powered by a 1.75-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with close to 250 hp, mated to a “TCT” dual-clutch automatic.

Alfa is keeping the weight down in the 2014 4C with a small footprint (the 4C is about the same size as a Mazda MX-5 Miata), carbon-fiber chassis and aluminum bodywork. Alfa Romeo hasn’t yet released images of the 4C’s interior but says it’ll feature an exposed carbon-fiber central tunnel, paddle shifters, and the latest evolution of its “DNA” drive mode selector with a new Race mode.
