Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Chrysler has confirmed that a new Alfa Romeo model will debut at the Detroit Motor Show 2015 and reports indicate that it will be the recently spied Alfa Romeo 4C Spider.

Underneath, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider will feature the same 236 hp 1.75-litre four-cylinder engine with a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox as the coupe. The combination of the low weight with a power dense engine means the 4C Spider should be capable of hitting 100 km/h sprint in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 250 km/h.

As for the roof mechanism, a single large rollover bar made from carbon fibre is expected to be featured alongside a folding soft top. All up, the 4C Spider is expected to tip the scales at just 60 kg more than the lightweight coupe.

Alongside the removal of a fixed roof, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spiders will feature more traditional headlights like the 4C Spider Concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2014. Additionally, a set of carbon fibre air intakes on the side skirts and not present on the 4C coupe will be included.
