The Italian based automaker Alfa Romeo has recently pulled the wraps off a very special 4C, a safety car, which will make its debut this weekend, at the FIM World Superbike Championship.
The brand new Alfa Romeo 4C has just been unveiled a few months ago and now the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a new image, which is showing the sports car getting ready to hit the track. But it won’t hit the track in its regular livery and in fact the model in question is a safety car, with a two-tone exterior with red, white and green stripes, running the length of its body.
“Alfa Romeo is a proud sponsor of the FIM World Superbike Championship having been associated with the series for seven years now. As we prepare to launch the Alfa 4C here in the UK, it’s fantastic to be able to showcase this car to the public for a second time as it takes to the prestigious Silverstone circuit”, said Damien Dally, the UK Alfa Romeo boss.
The Alfa Romeo 4C safety car is powered, just like the standard model, by the same 1.75 liter four-cylinder engine, which is good for 240 HP (176 kW) and 350 Nm of torque (258 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 4.5 seconds and top speed stands at 250 km/h (155 mph).
