Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Goes On Sale.

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Goes On Sale. 

Alfa Romeo’s new 4C Spider is now available to order in limited numbers with a price tag of around £59.500.

The new two-seat 4C Spider roadster uses the same equipment offered with the coupé version, such as, an upgraded stereo, increased leather interior trim, a bespoke car cover and a carbonfibre windscreen frame.

What’s differentiating 4C Spider from the 4C Coupé is its removable roof, which is offered as a soft, stowable canvas, with an optional carbonfibre hard-top to become available later in 2015.

The 4C Spider gets the same 1.75-litre 237bhp turbocharged engine as the coupe, along with its standard twin-clutch gearbox. Alfa Romeo claims the 4C Spider is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 4.5sec, at a top speed of 160mph.

Alfa’s US boss, Reid Bigland, stated that “After a 20-year absence…our commitment to the brand is unprecedented. By the end of 2015 we’ll have more than 1000 engineers dedicated solely to Alfa. We are led by two ex-Ferrari managers. We are on track for success.”
