At this August’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Alfa Romeo will celebrate its 100th year. According to sources, Alfa will unveil something called the 4C, a compact sports car concept.
An insider from Fiat told Automobile that the “8C has been a very successful halo car. What we need next is a more affordable follow-up model that spreads the message over a wider customer base.”
Unlike the 8C Competizione, which was powered by a Ferrari-built engine, the 4C will be powered by a 240-hp 4-cylinder engine mated to a rear-transaxle.
Production of the 4C will most likely be limited to 5,000 rather than 500 units like the 8C. A roadster version is also expected.
