A symphony in carbon fiber. Balance Personified. A mini Ferrari as cute a bunny rabbit, with the greatest badge in the history of motors.
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has a 1.7 4-Liter 4-cylinder turbocharged Engine which makes 234 horsepower. It can go from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and it has a top speed of 160 mph. It weighs 1128kg. It uses a carbon fiber tub, front and rear crash box, and hybrid rear subframe mainly out of aluminum to keep weight at 1,050 kilograms
The entire carbon-fiber monocoque chassis (“tub”) of the car weighs a mere 65 k. Front and rear aluminum subframes combine with the tub, roof reinforcements and engine mounting to comprise the 4C chassis giving the vehicle a total chassis weight of 107 kg and a total vehicle curb weight of just 1,118 kg.
The 4C has a single carbon fiber body, similar to the body of many supercars. The outer body is made of a composite material (SMC for Sheet Moulding Compound) which is 20% lighter than steel. The stability is comparable to steel and better than aluminum.
