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.

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Electric, MISC There's been a proud history of basing electric sports cars off of the Lotus Elise. Its lightweight architecture has formed the basis for the original Tesla Roadster, the PG Elektrus, the Rinspeed sQuba concept, the Zytek Elise prototype and the Dodge Circuit EV show car. But those projects have all come and gone. That run might not be over, though, as the next to raise the flag is Detroit Electric. The startup showca ...
