The delay is due to the concern of officials 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sales opportunities in the short term in light of the sovereign debt crisis currently affecting many countries in the euro zone.
The finished production-ready 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C, in Geneva was introduced in 2013, the same as two years ago, the concept was introduced there. The first 1,000 vehicles will be as “Launch Edition” 4C. This limited production cars come in a traditional style of painting “Alfa Red” or “White Carrara” exclusive color. Launch Editions also carbon fiber aerodynamic body shape, the LED lights up the dark circles, and the rear wheels of 19 inch 18 inch given before.

Alfa says buyers start Alfa Romeo 4C 2014 edition will have the opportunity to attend an event in Italy, where the owners can participate in a must attend “training session developed with professional driving instructor.” No word yet if this event is included in the sale price of the vehicle.
Although the U.S. prices have not been established, the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition in Europe sells for about $ 78,000 at current exchange rates. This is far from the relentless Alfa latest sports car, the 8C Competizione and Spider Convertible V8, which saw the combined production of only 1,000 units in 2007-08. Of these, only 84 coupes and 35 Spiders in the United States sold $ 300,000 apiece.
Styling for 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Concept was created by Fiat in Turin study and should lead to the production model with a few changes. The design takes elements of the 8C Competizione, but the main source of inspiration is said, the low height of 33 Stradale late 1960s, its a street racing version 33 alpha, only 18 were built. Although we can see how the 4C sorta has a different shape and proportions of the Stradale. It also has unique features such as lines on the upper part of the body, leading to large prominent functional air pulls the edges of the doors – one leads to the rear / drive layout engine – the most asymmetrical lines and a tower defense – the roof with windshield columns and semi-hidden windows picantito marginalized. Swing gates in the usual way, but the positioning of the other cut lines “body” indicates that the leading sectors and the whole tailgate for easy access to the mechanical parts, a feature found in the classic Lamborghini Miura and many other sports cars. The rear part of a separate boot cover.
Although the concept of the design of the cabin probably a little easier production was 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C, panel a tool-based drivers similar to one or more configurable displays and a steering wheel style and a thin, rod-shaped mouths Housing Center console hood switch and / or additional instruments . The bucket seats have to be tight and it will look much exposed carbon fiber.
That’s because the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C uses a fiber “bath” of carbon or the internal structure, which was designed in collaboration with the famous racing car constructor Dallara Automobili. Carbon fiber construction is the new big thing among high-performance cars and even some traditional models because it saves weight compared to a metal frame and design, while providing the same or greater strength. Less weight, in turn, can reduce the size of the components of the drive train and other higher fuel economy without sacrificing performance or impact resistance reach. Like the McLaren MP4-12C and other modern sports cars, the new Alfa Serre of bath mounted with metal frame and track and equipment are designed to absorb impact forces. Alpha said a targeted weight of only 1785 pounds heavier despite 4C will have ready for production of the road about 200 pounds.
The Alfa Romeo 4C in 2014 powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine 1.7-liter aluminum with electricity. Let the “1750” engine with 240 hp, direct injection and dual variable valve timing supported. Assuming that the engineers have their way, the 4C should have a power to weight ratio of about 8.2 pounds, probably the closest compared to 8.3 per 2800 pounds of the 320 hp Porsche Cayman rival conceptual new Alfa. For reasons of simplicity and weight savings, reserves of production of 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Concept dual-clutch gearbox TCT transmission, a transmission driven by computers can be changed manually or as a conventional automatic transmission work.
In addition, the Alfa Romeo 4C 2014 should focus on the design of the chassis concept, which begins with an independent suspension on all four wheels, which uses double wishbone front geometry and configuration of the brace on the back. Front weight distribution should be 40/60 percent, remain typical of a sports car rear engine. System “DNA” of Alpha will be standard, but can the driver steering, throttle response and transmission measurement through Dynamic, Normal and All-weather modes. There is also a career mode 4C-exclusive importance for the behavior of the track. Brakes? 4-wheel disc ABS with good size, of course. A standard traction control system with traction control is a fact.
