The open air experience of wind in your hair and sweet exotic sound of the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is coming to U.S. dealerships this summer.
Building on the affordable exotic image of the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe, the removable carbon-fiber hard top 4C Spyder made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show.
The new 4C Spyder has a unique carbon fiber windshield frame for light-weight strength, composite-framed sport seats wrapped with leather and exposed carbon fiber structural elements all around.
More upscale than the 4C Coupe, a premium fully wrapped leather interior is standard on the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, as are unique carbon fiber vent surrounds.
You can also now option a high-end Alpine audio system, as if you’d need it with the sounds this car makes on its own. Its 237 horsepower 1.7 liter turbocharged four is now available with count them, three exhaust systems to please just about anyone.
The big one is an all-new Akrapovic dual-mode system with two center-mounted tailpipes. The computer can optimize resonance and that exotic sound with valves that divert flow through its mufflers.
At only 22 lbs more than the Coupe, the new 4C Spyder should offer up virtually identical performance in terms of speed. How stout the chassis is missing a solid roof will have to wait until a test drive.
Pricing hasn’t been announced for the Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder yet, but you can expect at premium over the Coupe when it arrives this summer.
