Good news to residents of the UK and visitors planning to attend this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed scheduled for July 11 to 14, only 37 days remaining. Alfa Romeo will be bringing the 4C to event, and not just any 4C, they will bring the Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition which is exclusive to only 1000 units.
With that said, let’s remind ourselves of what the Alfa Romeo 4C is all about. This is a uniquely treated Alfa Romeo 4C. The car is heavily awaited in the US market where Alfa Romeo is trying to make comeback strongly. Indeed, North America will receive the largest number of units out of the 1000 units available. They will receive 500! Europe will receive 400 while the rest 100 goes to the remaining continents.
The Launch edition will cost around 52,000 UK Pounds Sterling and it will come with added goodies such as a carbon fiber body kit, carbon fiber spoiler and enhanced suspension. The buyer can choose between an exterior finished in Carrera White or Alfa Red paintwork.
The powerhouse will feature a new direct-injection 240hp 1750 turbo petrol engine which is an evolution of the engine already in use in the Quadrifoglio Verde version of the Giulietta. The new ‘4 cylinder’ 1750 Turbo Petrol engine implements an innovative aluminum block and specific intake and exhaust systems which have been optimised to enhance the sports appeal of the car even further.
