Alfa Romeo is planning to put its 4C Spider Convertible into production and after the concept version of the car was last seen at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show back in September, the Italian based automaker is close to develop the production version of the roadster.
Even if we don’t have some official details about the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, we now have a glimpse of what the new roadster might look like thanks to teamspeed.com and what the guys over there did might actually preview the new model. Rumors say that the future rival of the Mazda MX-5 will be powered by a 1.75 liter engine, downsized from the 1.8 liter turbo, which is expected to develop about 150 horsepower, but even so, if you want more there’s always the SLK AMG or its bigger brother, the SL.
Sadly we don’t have any more details about the 2013 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider but as a reminder, the 4C Concept presented at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show was powered by a 1.7 liter turbocharged petrol engine, the same one used on the Giulietta, mated to a twin dry-clutch transmission. Alfa declined to specify a precise horsepower figure but we know that the unit is developing 232 BHP in other uses and it can take the 4C Concept from 0 to 100 km in “less than five seconds” with a top speed “of over 250 km/h”.
