[Alfa Romeo News] The Alfa Romeo 4C will find its way to our shores by the end of the year and we’ve received preliminary information regarding the model allocation and projected pricing.
Initially a total of 1000 units have thus far been allocated globally. The breakdown comprises 500 units for North America, 400 units for the Middle East and Africa and 100 for the rest of the world. Alfa Romeo plans to produce 3 500 4Cs annually.
The initial 15 units headed for our market will be Limited Edition models distinguished by a choice of model-specific red or white paint schemes, bi-LED headlamps, aluminium diffuser, a racing exhaust, specially calibrated suspension, burnished alloy wheels, additional front air dams and a series of subtle interior upgrades. Seven of these cars will come our way in 2013 followed by a further eight units in 2014.
Thereafter we’ll receive 25 units of the standard 4C model per annum.
At the time of going to press, the Limited Edition models will be priced at around R799 000 and the standard model will cost roughly R730 000.
Both Limited Edition and standard models will be powered a 1,8-litre turbopetrol engine developing 177 kW. This unit features an aluminium block, direct fuel injection, model-specific intake and exhaust systems and a scavenging control system that Alfa claims will negate turbo-lag.
