Handcrafted in Italy

Every Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and Spider is assembled by hand in Modena, Italy. Each expert technician must undergo 500 hours of training dedicated to meeting the impeccable standards set by Alfa Romeo. Fine Italian leather, natural wood trims, and hand-laid authentic carbon fiber combine beauty and strength inside the cabin of the 4C. Details like the flat-bottom race-inspired steering wheel, angled instrumentation and controls, along with aluminum pedals highlight the driver-centric focus on the interior.

Lightweight Strength

In collaboration with racing chassis designers, Alfa Romeo designed a Carbon Fiber Monocoque Chassis for the 4C Coupe and Spider. This hand-laid carbon fiber is three times stronger than conventional steel and is seven times lighter. For the outer body, Sheet Molded Compound (SMC) is used and offers corrosion resistance along with a 20% weight reduction. The end result is a curb weight of just under 2,500 lb for both 4C Coupe and Spider. Lightweight chassis paired with a rear-wheel-drive, mid-engined layout produces driving thrills both on and off the track.
