The Very Best Of

2014 Alfa Romeo 4C

20 years ago, Italian automaker Alfa Romeo exited the U.S market. The company had crafted some iconic (and expensive) sports cars, but also had a reputation for unreliability. Now Alfa Romeo is back in the U.S. with the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C.

The 4C is a aggressively styled coupe built around a carbon-fiber tub. Aluminum is used for roof structures and crash supports, and the engine is all-aluminum as well. All this makes for a light vehicle – with the 4C weighing in just under 2,000 pounds. The turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine will make 240 hp. The car measures 157 inches (399 cm) long, 79 inches (200 cm) wide, 46 inches (118 cm) high, and has a wheelbase of 94 inches (238 cm).

The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C should arrive in the U.S. this fall, with a starting price of around $70,000.
