Following in the footsteps of its positively stunning predecessor, the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept is both lighter and smaller in dimensions than the 8C Competizione. The 4C Concept is built from carbon fiber and aluminum and manages to keep an ultralight weight of 1,873 lbs. Not nearly as powerful as its bigger brother’s V8, the 4C’s 200 hp direct injection four-cylinder turbo is able to drive the rear wheels of this lightweight looker to 60 mph in a little more than four seconds. We imagine the 4C will be quite the tossable sports car if Alfa brings it to market with its excellent power-to-weight ratio. The fact that it’s easy on the eyes with its beautiful lines, traditional Alfa grille and unique matte red paint is just icing on the cake. We especially hope the U.S. gets a hold of this car, which is entirely possible given that Alfa is seriously considering making its way back to our shores.
