A path between Design, Innovation and Technology
THE IMAGINATION AND INVENTION
It all starts from the first sketches in pencil. In this lies the whole emphasis, the enthusiasm of those who, in front of a blank sheet of paper, try to imagine something new. On paper are transferred all the emotions, their beliefs and why not, even a hint of wrongdoing.
THE IDEAS THAT ARISE FROM DREAMS
After several sketches and designs, shapes come to life. This raises the soul of a model, the essence of the 4C Concept. From here emerge shapes and lines and various proposals only after two or three designs will be selected to become a model.
THE DESIGN TAKES SHAPE
From the drawings on paper to the realization in clay, the 4C Concept shapes are molded resized and improved. In model 8.3 is revealed in a compact car with sinuous lines and essential.
THE TRANSLATION OF EMOTION
The model is now in full-scale. 4 meters in length and a wheelbase of around 2.4 meters.
In the forms, 4C Concept is revealed in all its compactness and agility, in a final model very similar to the original design.
AESTHETICS AND LIGHTNESS
The carbon fiber is the cornerstone around which were defined performance parameters of the 4C Concept. The chassis includes a bathtub made of carbon which has been converted into a space for the seats.
ELEGANCE AND ELASTICITY
A considerable reduction of the weights and an optimization of the cog: these advantages obtained thanks to the use of aluminum for the rear structure and the crash boxes. 4c Concept weighs less than 850 kg.
A SINUOUS AND ESSENTIAL
A coupe rear-wheel drive two-seater 4C Concept is revealed in all its compactness and agility. Inspired by the style of 8C, 4C Concept follows the mechanical arrangement by proposing the addition of two main volumes: the rear, with strong volumes and sections, the front consists of two long muscles that create the front wings and the “V” on the bonnet that ends on a typical league. To ensure maximum agility and road holding patterns suspensions are extremely sophisticated, “high wishbone” for the front, McPherson for the rear.
THE MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE
Parking in rear center position, the powerful engine 4 cylinder 1750 Turbo Petrol over 200 hp, guarantees optimum performance and acceleration from 0 to 100 km below the threshold of 5 seconds.
GLAMOUR, TECHNIQUE AND POWER
This supercar technology derived from the 8C integrates and interacts with technology derived from Alfa Romeo “everyday.” The car is equipped with the new Alfa TCT transmission and the Alfa DNA selector
A TEAM EFFORT
A concept becomes reality. 4C Concept is mounted: the frame is ready to be coated, the body and all the components to be integrated. A large and diverse team has been hired to achieve a common goal: to turn a prototype into a supercar killer. Before being exposed 4C Concept will be assembled, painted and inspected.
THE SEARCH AND THE EVOLUTION
A 4C Concept lacks only the signature: the Alfa Romeo brand is affixed on the car. She was born the new concept car: sinus tracts, distinctive character and a true Alfa.
RED LAVA AND FLUID METAL
Two-color flow dynamically on the car body. A fiery red from dark shades, soft touch Red Lava, and the new Fluid Metal, as a sheet of metal, creates a silvery reflecting effect.
