    EXCLUSIVE -- Alfa Romeo 4C Officially Priced From $54,000



    Alfa Romeoís upcoming lightweight sports car will cost $54,000, pricing it $1,400 above a Porsche Cayman excluding delivery charges.

    When it arrives in the second quarter of 2014, the 4C will mark Alfa Romeoís return to North America. That doesnít mean you can expect to see Chrysler dealers out with tack hammers and ladders, adding Alfa signs to their stores. Instead, the companyís sole product will sell through Maserati dealers despite the carís relatively low price.

    First shown during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the car us powered by a 1.75-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine mounted behind the seats. Considering the fact that Alfa bills it as a supercar, the millís 240-hp output might seem low. Donít be fooled. Alfa is still playing coy with curb weights, but it tips the scales at about 2,080 lbs. From the outset, Alfa made it clear that the 4C will lean on light weight for performance rather than excessive power. A carbon fiber monocoque chassis helps keep the weight low while Alfa boasts a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in 4.5 seconds.

    Official fuel consumption figures havenít been announced yet, but the car is also expected to be unusually efficient for a performance vehicle.

    Lots of goodness built into this little thing. I'm sure they'll sell every one they will make.

    I'm not 'hating' the headlights as much as I was before. I think I'm not a fan of them for the same reason I'm not a fan of the Sonic's headlights and tail lights. Exposed black carbon/plastic just looks out of place in that kind of shape. Anyone able to chop on the Alfa 8C's headlight style onto the 4C?! maybe if the 4C's headlights were shelled in, it would look a bit better...

    I think it's because they look like pre-production car headlights or placeholders. They don't look like a finished product.

    Although I think with the 8C headlights it might look too bland. These are certainly different. I'd like to see the black painted to match the body though.

    I'm surprised the Alfa is not being sold at fiat dealers...

    Is this because only 3500 units will be produced a year?

    I wonder if the fiat dealers are pissed?
