Alfa Romeo 4C Spider LHD
An Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, finished in White over Black. Under 500 miles from new, perfect condition. VAT Qual.
The car was designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo (Style Centre) and developed by Alfa Romeo. The chassis is composed of a central carbon fiber tub, with aluminium subframes front and rear. The carbon fiber tub is produced by TTA (Tecno Tessile Adler) in Airola, as a joint venture between Adler Plastic and Lavorazione Materiali Compositi. The carbon fiber components that make up the chassis are cut using CNC technology.
The chassis of the car weighs 107 kilograms (236 lb) and is a single carbon fiber body, similar to the body of many supercars. The outer body is made of a composite material (SMC for Sheet Moulding Compound) which is 20% lighter than steel. The stability is comparable to steel and better than aluminium.
The 4C employs double wishbone suspensions at the front and MacPherson struts at the rear. The resultant weight distribution is 38% on the front and 62% on the rear axle. Wheels and tyres have different diameters and widths front and rear: 205/45 R17 front and 235/40 R18 back as standard, with optional 205/40 R18 and 235/35 R19. Both wheel options come equipped with Pirelli P Zero tires. The 4C uses vented disc brakes on all wheels; Brembo 305 millimetres (12.0 in) on the front and 292 millimetres (11.5 in) on the rear. The car can stop from 100 km/h (62 mph) in 36 meters. To save weight and increase steering feel, the 4C has no power steering. Its center of gravity height is 40 centimetres (16 in); lower than the Lotus Elise.
The 4C uses a new all-aluminium 1.75 L (1,742 cc) 240 horsepower (180 kW) at 6000 rpm inline 4 cylinder turbocharged engine. The engine has been designed for minimum weight. The engine's CO2 emissions are 157 g/km and combined fuel consumption 6.8 L/100 km (42 mpg). 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) acceleration is achieved in 4.5 seconds and the top speed is 258 km/h (160 mph), the power-to-weight-ratio being just 0.33 hp/kg (8.22 lb/hp).
The car we're offering is a LHD example that has done under 800km from new, and sits in a stunning White over Black colour combination. The car is VAT Qualifying. With a list price of EUR 77,000 this is a bargain not to be missed!
