The Italian based automaker Alfa Romeo is planning to use the brand new 4C in order to inspire various other future models in its upcoming lineup.
The announcement has been made by the company’s UK brand manager, Damien Dally, who said that its small engine will be reflected into future Alfa Romeo models. The 4C will also help upcoming vehicles, signed by the carmaker, to come to life and its technology will be found under the body of more future cars. The Alfa Romeo 4C has been recently unveiled back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and it was also brought to several other automotive events, across the globe, including the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed.
As a quick reminder, the Alfa Romeo 4C is powered by a 1.75 four-cylinder mid-mounted turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 237 HP in standard. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.2 seconds and its average fuel consumption will stand at 40 mph (UK), while the CO2 emissions will stop at 150 g/km. The engine is mated to a twin-clutch TCT transmission, with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. Top speed stands at 250 km/h (155 mph).
