2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider: New Standard Features, Classic Italian Charm
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a treat for the senses with drop-dead gorgeous styling and exhilarating performance. Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, the mid-engine sports car draws on over a century of Alfa Romeo racing history. And for the 2019 model year, the world-famous two-seater gets even better with new standard features and options.
The 2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider
Starting in 2019, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider now comes standard with a backup camera, cruise control and rear park sensors. New stand-alone options include a race-tuned suspension, microfiber steering wheel and carbon fiber mirrors. Otherwise, the exemplary Italian roadster carries over unchanged from the previous model year.
Stunning Italian design
Classic Italian penmanship gives the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider the look of a car three times its cost. The roadster’s svelte silhouette is complemented by thoughtful touches, such as carbon fiber mirrors and a carbon fiber side vent. There’s also an available Akrapovic dual-mode exhaust system with center-mounted tips.
The open-air cockpit features an array of performance-inspired design cues. Highlights include carbon fiber accents and a flat-bottom, microfiber steering wheel. Naturally, ultra-soft leather with accent-stitching comes standard.
But this is more than a street-legal race car; there are creature comforts, too. Occupants enjoy a standard Alpine stereo system, air conditioning and auto-down power windows.
As enjoyable as the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is to look at, it’s even more fun to drive. Inspiring performance starts with a 1.7L turbocharged four-cylinder engine (237 hp, 258 lb.-ft.). The unit features a block forged from lightweight aluminum for reduced mass. Also, it’s packed full of advanced technology such as direct injection, dual intercoolers and variable valve timing.
Power from the turbocharged engine routes through a 6-speed twin-clutch transmission. And, for improved weight distribution, the entire drivetrain mounts at the rear of the vehicle in a mid-engine layout.
Altogether, the car weighs just 2,500 lbs., thanks to its ultralight carbon fiber monocoque and aluminum chassis. The resultant 10.4 power-to-weight ratio – along with the car’s sport-tuned suspension – provide unmatched handling on winding roads. Drivers can also fine-tune the experience with the DNA (Dynamic, Natural, All-Weather and Race modes) Pro Drive Mode Selector.
The numbers don’t lie: The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is good for a 0-60 mph sprint in just 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph.
High-tech features are found throughout the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. As was mentioned, all cars now come standard with a backup camera mounted in the rearview mirror. Plus, maneuvering in and out of tight spaces is made easier with rear parking sensors.
A lot of safety equipment is packed into the small Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. There are front airbags, side airbags and a driver’s knee airbag. Stability control and hill-start assist also come standard.
