We've known that the Alfa Romeo 4C was coming for quite some time now, and we've followed it like obsessed lunatics (because we are), but we have yet to see a production version until now. Alfa Romeo just released these three images of the production 4C. In addition to the pictures of the production car, which will have its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the Italians let loose a few details regarding the features of the mid-engined sports car. 

  • The 1.75L turbocharged four cylinder engine is currently powering the Giulietta Quadrifoglio, but will be updated for use in the 4C. One of the new technologies is a "revolutionary scavenging control system that gets rid of any turbo lag." Expect at least 230 horses from this powerplant.
  • This engine will be linked up to Alfa's dual-clutch TCT semi-automatic transmission. While no number was given, we expect six gears here.
  • The car will come with the new Alfa Romeo DNA selector, which allows you to set the suspension, traction control, ECU, brakes, and throttle response to Normal, Dynamic, All Weather, and now Race.  
  • It will be built by Maserati.
  • The central cell will be made of carbon fiber, and is unfinished, so as to show off this feature.

The 4C will go on sale later this year, and 1,000 units have been earmarked for the USA. We're happy the the concept has not been dumbed down at all; the production car is just as jaw dropping as the concept.
