Abarth’s Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder Coming to US

The Geneva Motor Show is now well and truly over, but there were a few gems that we could take away with us, and one of them was the fact that Abarth is to build the Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder. We know that the concept will be coming to the US, but we are uncertain how long it will be after the release of the 4C GTA.

Nothing is known about the Spyder version, but one would assume that it would be very similar to the GTA version. This model – which does not have a roof — will be powered by a 1750 4-cylinder turbo-charged engine, which will produce 200 horsepower. That is enough to propel the car from standstill to 60mph in less than five seconds and reach a limited top speed of 155mph.

The Spyder version, which will be on show during the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year will be a little slower because of the inclusion of a roof, but we assume that Abarth will make a few tweaks to counter this problem — maybe a performance tweak to the engine?

Looking at the rendering on Eurocar Blog you can see that Alfa Romeo has not lost its flair for design — how can you not fall in love with those lines on the front and sides of the Spyder? Let us hope that Abarth stays faithful to the rendering, if they do then they could be on to a winner.

What are your thoughts on the Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder?
