Alfa Romeo 4C priced at $53,900* in US

The US edition gains 342 pounds as compared to the Euro version

Unfortunately no driving impressions can be offered for the Alfa Romeo 4C, at least not for a few more days. But there is still good news that we can at least provide you with a few interesting non-driving-based tidbits from the launch program which is going to enlighten you on Alfa’s new "compact supercar".

Moving back in to time to when Matt Davis drove the European-spec 4C in the fall of last year, he guessed that that the starting price for the US would hover around $55,000 and this estimate was pretty close to the actual price because the starting bill on a 4C will be $53,900, plus a significant $1,295 for destination, netting out to $55,195 out the door.

This digit is exactly what we would expect from an Italian quasi-supercar but don’t think that this is going to be the exact amount you would pay in case you decide to buy the car. It is being said that $62k to $65k will be the sweet spot for 4C sales in the US so if you are hoping to get your hands on the 2015 model you will simply have to pay $69,695 (including destination). This is nothing considering the plus points which come in the form of low weight and beefier version; weight of the feather-light 4C will stay below the magical 2,500-pound mark (2,495 lbs., wet), it has still gained some 342 pounds versus the European-spec car.

The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Is Worth The Weight

Jun 17 2014 12:20pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Remember the 8C? Neither does Alfa Romeo. That cynical, overpriced attempt at an American comeback was never mentioned while Alfa trumpeted its return to the U.S. And for good reason. The 4C puts that $300,000 hack job to shame in every department we care about, and does it at one-fifth the c ...

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Alfa Romeo, New Car Reviews, Luxury The dissonance between first look and first wheel turn was jarring. Alfa Romeo had chosen a suitably hip venue in which to showcase the coupe that will mark the brand's honest-to-God return to the US market - a graffiti-festooned warehouse housing a boutique furniture company in San Francisco's Mission District. The curvilinear sports car proved a lovely stylistic counterpoint to its concrete and metal ...

Alfa Romeo 4C

Jun 16 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Top Speed

In 2011, Alfa Romeo debuted an all-new sports car that it dubbed the 4C. Upon initial inspection, this beastly compact model looked to be more of a "future styling" concept, which means it will never see production. However, as time went on, Alfa Romeo decided to make the 4C a reality. Even better, Alfa Romeo plans to release the 4C in the U.S., making it the first U.S.-sold Alfa Romeo since the 2008 8C.The 4C takes its name from Alfa Romeo’s storied racing tradition. The company first ...
