2015 NAIAS LIVE: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider image

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has been officially introduced at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit.

Following a series of spy shots and leaked images, the brand new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has been finally introduced, this time at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, where it is currently waiting for the public. The model in question has retained the design of its solid roof brother but it has added several tweaks, including the removable and stowable cloth roof, the optional exposed carbon fiber hardtop, the sculpted air intakes, the decklid with 3 functional heat extractors, the more attractive headlights, the LED taillights, the aero optimized spoiler, Akrapovic performance exhaust system with center mounted tips and several other items.

The brake calipers can be finished in black, yellow, silver or red and they can be covered by the wheels ranging between 17- to 19-inch, while the exterior paints include seven shades, along with the new yellow (Giallo), while the interior is offering six combinations with two seat material options. On the 4C Spider we can find the 7-inch color digital cluster, the carbon fiber vent surrounds, the aluminum pedals, flat bottomed leather wrapped steering wheel, Alpine sound system, USB and iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, SiriusXM Radio and sports seats with leather wrapping.

Power is coming from the same 1.75L turbo unit with 237 HP (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft), connected to a double clutch transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. From 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), the model needs 4.1 seconds and it will go up to 160 mph (258 km/h. The first deliveries will begin this summer in the U.S. and Canada. No official pricing has been made public at this time.
