A prototype version of the impressive Alfa Romeo 4C has been recently crashed while it was being tested on a public road.
Usually when writing about car crashes we are used to say that the driver has pushed the gas pedal too hard and because his lack of experience the model has come to a sudden stop. But this isn’t the case here because we all know that prototypes are driven by professional drivers and our guess is that the Italian vehicle in question has probably left the road because of some ice. Sadly we don’t have any other details on this incident so if you know more than we do, please feel free to share.
As a quick reminder, the Alfa Romeo 4C Sports Coupe Concept has been officially presented to the public last year in March, during the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The model should get a production version which is expected to be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The 4C will probably be powered by a 1.8 liter turbocharged engine, mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission, which should allow it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds. More details on the model will be announced close to its debut.
