Concept car inspiration

Automotive News Europe are reporting the Alfa 4C design concept will draw inspiration from legendary 33 Stradale.

They published computer generated images from Italian magazine Quattrotuote claiming a close match to the concept due to appear on Alfa Romeo's stand at the Geneva Motor Show.

They are reporting that the 4C will enter production late 2012, possibly at Mirafiori works. They plan between 15-20,000 unit over a 5yr run priced at about €45.000. It is also rumoured they may build a Spider version likely to be badged as an Abarth.

 

Alfa Romeo are, according to Automotive News Europe, targeting 850 kg for the 4C which, when combined with a 250 bhp, should give it better power to weight ratio than the Porsche Cayman S.
