  • 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C will start from $55,195 with shipping
  • Alfa says the first 500 launch-edition models will start from $69,695
  • Curb weight is 2,495 pounds, which is heavier than European models

The sporty Alfa Romeo 4C will start at $55,195 with shipping when it reaches U.S. dealers this summer. That's the latest from the spicy Italian brand, which recently confirmed the sports car's pricing -- and several other details -- just ahead of its official launch.

According to Alfa Romeo, the 4C's pricing will actually start at $53,900 before a mandatory destination charge of $1,295 -- one of the highest shipping costs in the industry. Pricing will go up even further from there as shoppers add options, which we're certain will be plentiful. In fact, Alfa says it expects most 4C units to leave dealership showrooms priced in the low- to mid-$60,000 range.

But drivers who have to have one of the first 500 4C models will pay even more for the privilege of doing so. The initial run of 4C launch-edition models will cost $69,695 with shipping -- a figure that includes extras like sports suspension, sports exhaust, upgraded wheels with a dark finish and a unique plaque certifying that it's one of the first 500 cars to reach U.S. shores.

The other important detail recently announced by Alfa Romeo is the 4C's curb weight. According to Alfa, the sporty coupe will weigh in around 2,495 pounds, which makes it one of the lightest vehicles on sale in the U.S. (In comparison, a Toyota Corolla weighs around 2,800 pounds, and a Camry is closer to 3,300 pounds.)

Still, some sports-car purists aren't satisfied with the 4C's low curb weight. That's because European models weigh in around 2,150 pounds, which means the U.S.-spec 4C won't quite offer the same impressive performance as its foreign counterpart. Alfa says the weight difference is due to additional U.S. safety equipment and a thicker carbon-fiber tub.

If you're interested in a 4C, you'd better act fast. Alfa says just 1,200 units will come to the U.S., out of 3,500 planned for the entire world. Each one will feature a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, mated to a standard dual-clutch automatic transmission.

What it means to you: The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C will offer impressive performance and exciting styling when it reaches dealers in June.
