2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Jump to Images

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider returns for 2016 with a few relatively minor changes, mostly in the area of available packages and new standard equipment. A new Akrapovic dual mode titanium exhaust with assymetrical mufflers and link pipe with resonator. A new carbon fiber trim package for the interior sees its use on the instrument panel and instrument cluster surround, as well as the shift bezels and vent surrounds.

The 4C Spider utilizes a 1.75 liter turbocharged inline-4 producing 237 hp and a full 258 lb-ft of torque. The car itself weighs only 2487 lbs, a mere 22 lbs more than the Coupe, thanks in large part to its carbon fiber monocoque. That low weight and mid-engine layout aids the car in reaching 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds and 1.1 g of lateral acceleration, as well as up to 1.25 g of braking deceleration.
