Steve Cropley from Autocar has recently tested the brand new Alfa Romeo 4C on a track and he is talking about the ups and downs of one of the most important cars ever made by the brand.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is attracting a lot of curious eyes these days and after we have seen Jeremy Clarkson taking it for a spin around Lake Como, in Italy, at the beginning of the week, the sports car is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with Autocar’s Steve Cropley taking it for a spin on the track. The 4C has the tough job of becoming better than its rivals and taking the carmaker into the 21st century in terms of performance and reliability.
The Alfa Romeo 4C has been officially presented to the public earlier this year. The model in question weighs just 895 kg and it’s taking its power from a 1.75 liter four-cylinder engine, which is developing 177 kW and 350 Nm of torque. The unit is mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission, which is sending power to the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 4.5 seconds in the Alfa Romeo 4C.
Do you know Dacia? I’m actually pretty confident that even if you read this from a remote corner of the Earth you do know what I’m talking about. This is the power of globalization and particularly of Renault, which is behind the success story that we have come to know as the Dacia brand.
