Thanks to its small frame, light body and carbon fibre chassis as well as its classic Italian style, the Alfa Romeo 4C really ticks all the boxes for a fairly affordable sports car. From the factory, a host of colour options are available including matte black. However, the following example has been wrapped by aftermarket company Print Tech Premium Wrapping in Munich in matte black and the colour really looks beautiful finished like this.
In case you didn’t know, the Alfa Romeo 4C weighs just 895 kg while its 236 hp turbocharged 1.75-litre engine launches the car to 100 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds and a top speed of over 250 km/h. Alfa however insist that the figures are not what you should be focusing on but instead the compelling driving experience that it a result of the raspy exhaust note, staggeringly low curb weight and high power to weight ratio.
This lightweight construction has been achieved largely thanks to its carbon-fiber tub (that weight just an unbelievable 65 kg), along with several other key areas of weight saving including an aluminium engine block. As with Alfa’s of late, the DNA (Dynamic, Normal, All-Weather) drive selector is back but with an addition R for Race mode which adjusts the operational parameters of the engine, transmission, ESC and electronic Q2 differential depending on the driver’s requirements.
