The Alfa Romeo 4C is a lightweight sports car manufactured since 2013. It started as a concept which was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, exactly two years before the production model was unveiled. It replaced the 8C as Alfa Romeo's flagship sports car imported stateside. Unlike the 8C that was made in very limited numbers, the 4C is mass produced. It is crafted in Maserati's factory in Modena, Italy.
The key to the 4C's blistering quick performance despite it's small engine is it's low weight. weighing in at less than 1 ton, 1,973 lbs to be exact, is less than most subcompact cars. Weight is cut down by the use of a carbon fiber tub as the structure of the car, much like the McLaren F1, plus the use of aluminum. The body is made of SMC, instead of normal steel, because it is 20% lighter. Power steering was striped as well to keep weight down, but also to make the car feel more connected to the road.
The engine is just a 1.75 liter turbocharged inline four cylinder. It makes 240 horsepower. 0-60 mph takes just 4.5 seconds, but owners and testers have reported times of just 4.2 seconds. The small engine was designed small intentionally for lightness, but also gets amazing fuel economy for a high- performance sports car. The transmission is a paddle shifter style, 6- speed Alfa Romeo TCT Dual Dry Clutch with a race mode.
It is part of the Speed Pack in The Crew, and it is only available in Perf spec.

This car most likely replaced the Mazda RX-7 as the third Speed Pack vehicle, as the Playstation Store page for the pack showed the pack's image with the RX-7 in place of the 4C for a short time before Ubisoft noticed.
