Alfa Romeo 4C coming to the US

One thing the US needs more two-seat, rear wheel drive sports cars. It looks like another one might be coming to the states next year from Alfa Romeo. The tip comes from Fiat head Sergio Marchionne at the Detroit Motor Show when he stated that the vehicle would arrive in the US before the end of the year.

There's also some indication that the vehicle won't show up until 2014. The Alfa Romeo 4C is a mid-engine sports car that will be powered by various turbocharged four-cylinder engines. It's also a very attractive sports car that seats two people.

The vehicle promises a top speed of over 250 kmh and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmh in under 5 seconds. It looks to be a very small and lightweight Car as well so it should provide impressive handling.
