Top Gear recently sat down with Mauro Pierallini, head of engineering for Fiat in Europe, to talk about the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C. Engineers say that the first prototype of the car will hit roads in the middle of 2012, with sales to start in Europe and the United States in 2013.

Expected target weight will come in right under 2,000 with a 230-hp engine out of Giulietta Cloverleaf. The engine is already advanced but the production Alfa 4C will use an aluminium-block direct-injection turbo that’s lighter. The engine will be mated to a twin-clutch with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters. 0-62 mph will come in around 4.5 seconds.

Sources say that the model will eventually get a new engine in the future making around 300-hp. A convertible version is also in the works.
