The Alfa Romeo 4C is set for release at the end of this year, and Alfa has just released a brand new video showcasing the 4C on the track.
While it is very much a marketing promo, it’s awesome to see the 4C on track for the first time. The car is driven by 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Marc Gené, who claims the car is “very stable”, “handles well” and is “easy to manage.” From what we can see, Marc gets the car up to around 130 mph or so — well off the cars reported top speed. The car seems to understeer quite a lot, which doesn’t bode well for Alfa’s (serious) return to the sports car market.
The 4C will go on sale at the end of this year. It is powered by a 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 240 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is 155 mph with 60 mph coming up in 4.5 seconds.
Check out the video above for a better look at what the new 4C will be like on the track.
