Alfa Romeo 4C: Compact sports car concept to debut at Pebble Beach

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.
