You can find cars which have been perfectly designed for belting all around Europe’s extensive cross-country community of autobahns and Autostrade. The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is not one of these. The open-air version of the baby Italian supercar is made mainly to shape its way through the mountain / hill passes and scythe over the turning back roads perfectly into a track-day blast, whilst increasing the sensory experience of its fixed-roof sibling by revealing a greater portion of its allure with the wind in your hair. Looks-wise it’s quite just like the Coupe but gains covered projector-style xenon headlights as conventional as well as an optional yellow paint structure.
The cover plays a vital architectural role in a vehicle so there is danger that getting rid of it could turn the handling into jelly. Even worse, strengthening bars necessary to stiffen the framework add weight and may take the shine off performance.
Alfa Romeo says the 4C Coupe needed small architectural improvement in its modification, apart from an aluminium rollover structure, a graphite windscreen frame as well as an engine compartment cross-member made out of steel. You find a detachable cloth top but could spec a removable carbon fibre hardtop as well if you want.
It has the exact same 238bhp engine as the Coupe and gives a top speed of 160mph and -62mph duration of about 4.5 seconds. The Spider guarantees a similar lateral and braking g-force too.
Ensuring the 4C Spider seems proper with the roof down is an optionally available Akrapovic titanium exhaust system. Also you can possess a carbon-fibre air intake system, which Alfa Romeo says will supply additional transmission cooling for track-focused drivers.
New rim designs are available in two dimensions, either 17/18-inch (front/rear) or 18/19-inch, in silver or dark coatings.
A sound system with Wireless bluetooth telephone and audio streaming is currently obtainable, and you may trim the Spider’s cabin in premium synthetic leather with accent stitches, and carbon fibre vent out surrounds.
