The Alfa Romeo 4C utilizes various exotic construction techniques, including a structure composed of carbon fiber and aluminum as well as composite body panels. The engine, already physically smaller than the ones used in most of its competitors, is also an all-aluminum design and as a result, the car's total weight is kept down to about 2000 lbs.
While the Alfa Romeo 4C's light weight keeps straight line performance figures competitive, it also pays huge dividends in other areas. With so little weight over the front tires, Alfa has chosen not to fit the 4C with power steering, meaning that the car offers better feedback and more steering feel than just about anything on the road these days. It should also be relatively fuel efficient when compared to its competitors.
Launch Edition Alfa Romeo 4C's include bi-xenon headlights, a slightly altered front fascia, a carbon fiber spoiler, carbon fiber and leather interior accents, bigger wheels, leather seating and a commemorative plaque.
There are several option packages available on the Alfa Romeo 4C. A Convenience Package adds cruise control, an alarm and parking sensors, while a Leather Package includes leather seating and contrasting stitching. The Track Package consists of some reworked suspension, bigger wheels, and track oriented seats
