Billing it as "The Attainable Supercar," Chrysler Canada has released pricing for the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C.
The special Launch Edition coupe, which will arrive at Canada's four designated Alfa dealers this summer, will carry a price tag of $75,995. Only 500 serialized Launch Edtion models will be available for all 86 dealers in North America.
The standard Alfa Romeo 4C coupe, which will follow in the fall, will have a starting Canadian MSRP of $61,995.
The 4C, which will spearhead the Quadrifoglio brand's return to the North American market, is said to combine the best technical and manufacturing competencies of two brands, Alfa Romeo and Maserati. It will be built exclusively in Italy.
"The all-new 4C marks the return of ‘the great Alfa Romeos' and represents the purest formation of the brand’s DNA with its supercar-levels of performance and innovation, all while focusing on making the driver an integral part and completion of the machine," saidd Harald Wester, CEO of Alfa Romeo.
The "4C" name is said to recall Alfa Romeo's great sporting tradition: the acronyms 8C and 6C in the 1930s and 1940s distinguished racing and road cars fitted with eight and six cylinder engines.
The 4C is powered by an all-aluminum 1750 cc, direct-injection, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with intercooler, dual variable-valve timing and advanced scavenging technology.
