Rumoured to debut ahead of schedule in 2013, the new Alfa Romeo 4C

The new Alfa Romeo 4C is set to make a surprise debut on the road this winter, ready for drivers to enjoy in 2013. The original concept car was designed at the request of Alfa's design chief, Lorenzo Ramaciotti, and has already received a number of style awards including the prestigious Concorse d'Eleganza. As a result of the incredible success and popularity of the model as a concept, Alfa has pushed forward the general release date of the 4C.

Rumours of the early launch have pleasantly surprised both motoring enthusiasts and industry experts alike, as the car was originally intended to make an official debut at the Detroit Motor Show in 2014. The reports of a much earlier release for the Alfa Romeo 4C are welcome news to drivers, dealerships and reviewers across the country.

A flowing, smooth profile and highly aerodynamic curves create the Alfa Romeo 4C's stunning body, which has been carefully moulded in lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium to give the vehicle a weight of only 900kg. Alfa has fitted an innovative turbocharged engine to the 4c, producing 296bhp to reach a top speed of more than 150mph from a 0-60 of roughly five seconds.

In addition to award-winning style and effortless power, the 4C also demonstrates a reassuringly high level of safety. It includes Alfa Romeo's unique DNA driving mode adjustment system as standard, which quickly adapts to different terrains and the current road conditions to support the driver. Every passenger in the cabin benefits from the numerous surrounding airbags and security measures built into the body of the car, including braking and traction assistance to complement the adaptive suspension.
