The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has prepared its way to the world at 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and as expected, the new 4C Spider gets quite a few updates for 2016. The first glance goes to the removable top that has been coupled with additional bodywork.
With the aim to retain the rigidity, Alfa has added mechanical supports to the standing carbon fiber tub. Although the bodywork underneath has resulted in the increase of 132 pounds, there is no effect on the performance. The old bug-eyed headlights have been replaced with new headlights coupe, while the rear end looks better with new exhaust pipes mounted centrally. The car is powered with the same 237-hp turbo four with 258 pound-feet torque (between 2,100 and 4,000 rpm) and six-speed manual transmission and automatic mode for shifting. The narrow seats leave for no luggage room, but that doesn’t matter to the one behind the steering wheel.
Many elements have been retained from the 4C Coupe, which includes the center V-grille and front fascia. Also retained are the Ferrari-esque taillights and Alfa Romeo emblem on the rear spoiler. The new updates include the much coveted titanium exhaust system designed with carbon tips, new wheel options, roof design that brings in the perfect removable roof section.
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider doesn’t change much from the interiors, except for the new leather upholstery. The flat-bottomed steering has been retained, and the stunning TFT screen for the instrument cluster and mechanical handbrake in the center also remains the same.
With a top speed of 160 MPH, Alfa Romeo 4C Spider will cost around $83,360, based on the exchange rate. The new Alfa model will compete with Porsche Boxster GTS directly, which is yet to be launched, and Mercedes-Benz SLK350. with a powerful but light engine, Romeo 4C Spider is the ideal mountain cruiser and sporty design combined in one.
