Alfa Romeo is Back in America

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a new model from one of Italy’s most fabled automakers, Alfa Romeo. If you’ve been hanging out for the latest in Italian passion, you won’t have to wait any longer. Alfa Romeo’s brand new 4C sports coupe is here for the 2015 model year, and you can find your own slice of motoring paradise at Alfa Romeo and Fiat of Huntsville in Alabama.

Complementing our lineup of Fiat family and compact cars, the Alfa Romeo 4C represents everything you could wish for in a purebred Italian sports car.

Constructed from a carbon fiber monocoque with an aluminum sub frame, the Alfa Romeo 4C weighs in at less than 1000kg. The effort that Alfa Romeo has taken to keep weight down has paid off in both power to weight ratio, and raw performance. With a hi tech 1.75L turbocharged engine, the Alfa Romeo 4C is able to reach a top speed of 160mph, and hit 60 from a standstill in a little over four seconds.

With all of that power the car needs to handle well, and it does so with the help of the light weight, even weight distribution, and racing inspired suspension. The 4C uses a double wishbone setup at the front with MacPherson struts on the rear. The setup makes for an incredibly well balanced and dynamic feel, but one that can also be aggressive to take to the track on race days. The Alfa Romeo 4C is a car that lapped the Nurburgring in just 8 seconds, which is faster than cars like the Dodge Viper GTS, the BMW M3, and even the Porsche Cayman S.

Of course the Alfa looks the part too. Inspired by almost a century of innovative design, the 4C features sweeping lines, aggressive arches, and has a silhouette reminiscent of the recent Ferrari F455, albeit with a lot more character.

Alfa Romeo and Fiat of Huntsville are licensed dealers in Alabama, and we offer much more than just the 4C. Whether you’re looking for the latest in sports car performance, rally inspired fun in the Fiat Abarth, or sensible city driving with the Fiat 500 Pop Hatchback, we have the cars to suit.
