Lightweight strength

Natural elements make up the most high-tech materials in automotive engineering. The monocoque of the 4C Spider is a single Carbon Fiber body similar to that of a supercar, while its crankcase and its front and rear frames combine the strength, rigidity and lightweight properties of aluminum. Sheet Molded Compound (SMC) is used for the outer body and is 20% lighter and more stable than steel — and also resists corrosion.

Twin Clutch Transmission with Launch Control

The 4C Spider is equipped with an Alfa TCT 6-speed automatic transmission with a twin clutch and paddle shifters, a solution that combines the instant power of a sequential shift with all the convenience of an automatic. Pressing the brake pedal while fully pushing the accelerator pedal and triggering the left paddle on the steering wheel activates Launch Control. The moment the brake pedal is released, the system automatically controls the transmission, traction and power to maximize acceleration.

(1) No system, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESC warning lamp flashes, the driver needs to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behavior to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions.
(2) Always use seat belts. Children 12 and under should always be in a back seat correctly using an infant or child restraint system, or the seat belt properly positioned, dependent on the child’s age and weight.
(3) Must use Bluetooth® compatible phone.
