Alfa Romeo is back, and the automaker has chosen the 2014 New York International Auto Show to mark its return to North America.
The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe gets an appropriate 4-cylinder engine, and with the help of a little turbocharger, it puts out 237 rear-wheel horsepower. Thanks to its lightweight, carbon-fiber body, it weighs in at just 2,650 pounds, so it should handle like a go-kart. It doesn’t look like a go-kart, though; this is a super-sexy, mid-engine Italian exotic.
The 4C launch edition is limited to 500 units at a price point of around $70,000. You can expect deliveries in June or July of 2014.
