Alfa Romeo has released more details on the U.S.-spec version of the 4C which will arrive in the country this fall.

The new Alfa Romeo 4C will be introduced in the United States this fall as the small sports car will end up in 86 dealerships. The model in question weighs 1, 050 kg (2,315 lbs), unlike its cousin living in Europe which weighs just 895 kg (1,973 kg). The model has received some aluminum enforcements to the monocoque, which is made from carbon fiber, along with a new fuel system and some modified substructures.

If you can’t wait until this fall to get your hands on one, the car manufacturer is offering a limited run Launch Edition, which will be hitting the dealerships this summer, in 500 units. This costs 68,400 USD, unlike the standard version which can be yours from 53,900 USD, but it will be adding the bi-xenon headlights, the LED daytime running lights, the red lacquered brake calipers, carbon fiber mirror caps and rear spoiler or the 18-inch / 19-inch front to rear wheels. Power is coming from a 240 HP (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque 1.75 liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, connected to a TCT dual clutch transmission.
