Higher Performance Alfa 4C Spied
Sep 22, 2014 - 8:28 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
The Alfa Romeo 4C just launched in North America and already the brand is already preparing an even hotter version.

Our spy photographers managed to grab some shots of a prototype for the 4C Quadrifoglio Verde, a sportier version of the Italian car. This version is expected to include a bump in horsepower, unique suspension tuning and improved brakes. The standard 4C uses a 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

In the photos, we can see new air intakes which have been installed onto the car. The first set is just beside the headlights while the second set is just behind the doors, both of which are meant to funnel air onto the brakes for additional cooling. A small spoiler on the trunk completes the visual changes present on this prototype.

The life cycle for the 4C in America is slated to be roughly four or five years and Alfa Romeo has already said that we can expect annual updates throughout its life cycle to keep it exciting and fresh.

How about an even more powerful Alfa Romeo 4C?
Jul 03, 2014 - 11:37 AM - by Zeus


Sure the Alfa Romeo 4C is just hitting US shores now, but I am already looking forward to the next big thing, and so is Fiat R&D chief Harald Wester. He told Car & Driver recently that the 4C's 237-hp, turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine has more potential.

Quote:
We are only at 136 horsepower per liter, so there is more space.
Sounds like all but a confirmation that a higher powered 4C is in the works. Wester also confirmed that the 4C's structure could handle more power.

Quote:
The stiffness is very high. The first adjustment would be the brakes.”
A larger engine in the 4C would allow it to compete with leaders in the segment, like the Porsche Cayman GTS. That's a race that I'd like to see.

You have to wonder how much a more powerful 4C would cost though. The 4C costs about $68,000, so this higher powered version could only cost more than that.
