Alfa teases with 4C sports car

2011-08-05 08:38

SUCH A TEASE: Could a teaser image from Alfa Romeo ahead of the Frankfurt auto show be the sign that a production version of its 4C is imminent?

Is Alfa finally ready to show its 4C mid-engined sports car?

In the works to offer something smaller (and more affordable) than its 8C Competizione, the 4C concept was shown at the Geneva auto show in March, 2011. Powered by a 1.750-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, the concept was mated to a twin dry-clutch transmission called Alfa TCT.

"NEW LOOK"?

However, it seems as though Alfa is preparing to use the headlining Frankfurt auto show to show off a production version of the stunner. The head of Fiat and Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne has said the 4C will go on sale in Europe in the first half of 2012.

Although the teaser released by the automaker doesn’t reveal much, it does suggest a “new look” for the Italian nameplate.

Either way, all shalll be revealed at the Frankfurt auto show, which opens to the media on September 13, 2011.
