Power plays a great role in the delivery of performance, but it’s not enough by itself. Performance is the perfect combination of power, control and driving pleasure. To ensure this unique synergy of elements, we employ every necessary technical solution, from cutting-edge new ideas, to classic and unbeatable traditional ones.
The success Alfa Romeo has enjoyed over the years can be attributed to our long dedication to making the most efficient use of both power and weight. This challenge underlies the design of every component of the car.DISCOVER EFFICIENCY
If there’s one thing Alfa Romeo has learned from years of victory on the racetracks, it’s that balance is key. The Alfa Romeo 4C’s groundbreaking, centrally mounted aluminum engine significantly reduces weight as it eliminates the need for a driveshaft and optimizes weight distribution by concentrating mass near the center of the vehicle.DISCOVER ENGINES
The best sometimes comes from the past. Rear-wheel drive is featured in some of the most remarkable Alfa Romeo classic vehicles and is the configuration of the new Alfa Romeo 4C. The mid-engine layout, rear-wheel drive and monocoque chassis give each 4C model ideal weight distribution, with amazing handling control. This configuration is instrumental in delivering an unique driving experience and a constant racing feel that is 100% Alfa Romeo.DISCOVER REAR WHEEL DRIVE
