The 4C Concept paves the way for a production model.
The 2011 Geneva Motor Show played host to the world debut of the Alfa Romeo 4C concept, a compact sports car with styling inspired by the gorgeous Alfa Romeo 8c supercar.

With its curvaceous, lithe bodywork the 4C is a very good looking car. It almost has a hint of Italian-ified Lotus Exige running through it - and that's a compliment of the highest order.

Even the weight of the vehicle, just 850 kgs (1,873 lbs), is impressive and very Lotus-like. The weight has been kept in check thanks to a mixture of carbon fiber and aluminium construction. And at least that means while Lotus are currently electing to pile on the fat in the near future, someone's remembered that "adding lightness" really does work.

The Alfa Romeo 4C concept features technology and materials derived from the 8C and other, more affordable, Alfa Romeos. The engine for example is a 200 horsepower 1.8 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder which currently is found in the Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde. This engine features direct injection, dual continuous variable valve timing and a scavenging control system which eliminates turbo lag.

Coupled with the new automatic "Alfa TCT" twin dry clutch transmission, this high-tech engine allows the 4C Concept to reach a top speed of over 155 mph (250 km/h) and to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100km) in under 5 seconds.

However the best part about the Alfa Romeo 4C concept is the fact it actually made it to production!
