2016 Alfa Romeo 4C
Price: Starting at $55,900
Alfa Romeo returned to the U.S. market in 2015 with the mid-engine 4C sports car, followed by the open-top 4C Spider — both powered by a turbocharged 1.75-liter 4-cylinder engine with dual intercoolers that produces 237 horsepower. The 4C features a lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum chassis and the body is made entirely of SMC (sheet molded compound) — a low-density, high-strength composite material that is 20 percent lighter than steel but more rigid. The 4C will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and reach a top track speed of 160 mph. For 2016 an available carbon fiber trim package includes interior vents, instrument cluster surround and shift bezel. A new premium leather interior has Tobacco and Black sport seats, black interior and Tobacco accent stitching.
