2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider image

The brand new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has been officially introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a concept form.

Alfa Romeo has officially pulled the wraps off the new 4C Spider, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The model in question is basically a concept car but it will eventually give birth to a production model, which will join its existing coupe brother. The new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has basically the same design as the vehicle already available for order, along with a canvas soft top and carbon fiber rollover bars.

The model has also received the same lightweight material for the windscreen frame and for the spoilers and its weight has grown by 60 kg (132 lbs). The 4C Spider seen in Geneva has carbon fiber clamshell headlights, a centrally positioned dual exhaust system with titanium and carbon tailpipes, restyled alloy wheels, wrapped in Pirelli tiers and much more.

Power to the recently unveiled Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is being provided by a 1.75 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the same one from the coupe, which is producing a total output of 240 HP (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 6-speed dual clutch TCT transmission which is sending power to the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is made in 4.5 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
