Alfa Romeo has launched the ultra-exclusive 4C Competizione Limited Edition. Combining performance enhancements with sporting character and style, 4C Competizione Limited Edition hits Australian shores in a limited run of just ten units, individually numbered with the Competizione badge, forming part of the global series of 108 units.
“Bringing together Alfa Romeo DNA, performance and enviable Italian design in a full carbon theme, the 4C Competizione will speak to the hearts of Alfisti’s, racing lovers and first-time supercar buyers alike,” said Guillaume Drelon, Director, Brand & Product Strategy.
“This baby supercar is a statement, not only because of its looks, but because of the specification enhancements that deliver exceptional performance, including a weight-to-power ratio of less than 6kg/kW and top speed of 258 km/h.
“The 4C Competizione will take you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, has a lateral acceleration of 1.1g and maximum braking deceleration of 1.25g.”
Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, the Alfa Romeo 4C Competizione combines the racing and performance know-how of Alfa Romeo engineering with the craftsmanship and manufacturing expertise of Maserati. Based on the 4C Coupe, the very best technical and industrial techniques between the two brands were used to develop the 4C Competizione Limited Edition.
Featuring a carbon fibre surround, the Akrapovic dual-mode exhaust system is directly linked to the four DNA selector drive modes, providing maximum sound in Race mode, and providing a quieter motoring experience in Natural and All-weather modes.
Complete with sports suspension with double wishbone front and evolved MacPherson strut rear geometry, the performance enhancements are aided by the lavish use of ultralight materials, including carbon fibre shell, aluminium for the front and rear sub-frames and SMC (low density compound) for the bodywork.
Sure to turn heads, the exterior of the 4C Competizione Limited Edition features Vesuvio Matte Grey paint with inimitable bonnet and roof livery, exposed carbon fibre roof, and carbon fibre rear spoiler, mirror covers and side air intake.
Pirelli Racing Tyres complete the exterior racing package, wrapped in 18-inch front and 19-inch rear dark alloy wheels adorned with red brake calipers.
Inside the cabin, black leather and microfibre seats and leather sport steering wheel with microfibre insert are further refined with red stitching, and the numbered limited edition badge is stamped proudly in the centre console.
Audio performance steps up a notch with an upgraded Alpine Premium Sound System, including subwoofer centrally mounted behind the seats and an amplifier located in the passenger side footwell.
Motivating the 4C is a mid-mounted 1.8-litre turbo four that pumps out 177kW at 6,000rpm and 350Nm at 2,200rpm. Paired with a paddle-shifting Alfa TCT twin-clutch transmission, which has been specifically tuned for the 4C, the sprint from 0 to 100km/h can be accomplished in just 4.5 seconds
The 4C Competizione Limited Edition is now available in Alfa Romeo dealerships for $119,900 plus on-road costs.
