The 2013 Alfa Romeo 4C is an Italian lightweight sports car manufactured by Alfa Romeo since 2013. It started as a concept car 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 at Maserati's factory in Modena, Italy.
The key to the 4C's blistering quick performance despite its small engine is its low weight weighing in at less than a tonne and 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 a sheet molding compound (SMC), instead of normal steel, because it is 20% lighter. Power steering was removed as well to keep weight down, but also to make the car feel more connected to the road.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is equipped with an 1.8L turbocharged inline-four cylinder developing 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.
The Alfa Romeo 4C made its first appearance in the first installment of The Crew where it was made available as part of the Speed Pack DLC. It is only available in Perf. spec.
The Crew 2Edit
The Alfa Romeo 4C returned to The Crew 2 with its main stock model listed as a street racing vehicle and is only available as such. The 4C can be purchased with either 268,100 or with 38,300.
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.
