One of our last tests of the year past in the Present Engine was the Alfa Romeo 4C. My partner Eduardo proved to be enthusiastic about what fun and purist which is the small sports car of the Italian brand. Now from the united States come to us developments, because the Alfa Romeo 4C and its variant, a convertible, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, they are renewed in an edition MY2016.
The main changes between the 4C’s that we tested and the new are limited to some details on his equipment. For example, as of now both models can be equipped with a tube titanium exhaust signed by Akrapovic, although it is not advertised a power increase with your installation. In the 4C Spider is the air intake in the lower area of the lateral shall be carbon fiber.
The carbon fiber will also be charged greater prominence in the interior. On both models you can choose in option the Carbon Fiber Trim Package, which adds to the carbon in items such as the panel of instrumentation, the cams of the change or in the ventilation. Both can also choose a new leather upholstery bittern, that combines the colors Tobacco and Black.
The Alfa 4C Coupe wins a few items that had already been seen in the Spider as the audio system Alpine, that improves both the quality of the sound and the connectivity. In both models, we have substituted the speakers for better ones. In the 4C Spider has also been updated alarm system. On the other hand, at the mechanistic level remains exactly as it was.
thus we Find the four-cylinder turbo 1.75 TBi. Still paying 240 HP of power and 350 Nm pair, and using an automatic transmission of double clutch. It may not seem like much, but with 920 kg of weight is capable of doing the 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and reach the 260 km/h tip.
