Enough is enough already! After a series of teasing and leaked images, Alfa Romeo finally showed its 2015 redesigned Alfa Romeo 4C Spider at the North American International Auto Show. If you liked the initial 4C Coupe design, you will be glad to know that the automaker has preserved bigger part of it. Not to disappoint those who have been expecting it to be improved, the car arrives with some alterations. Just to spice things up a bit.
You might get bored, though, from the powerplant since power is still produced by the same four-cylinder, 1.75-liter turbocharged gasoline engine used in the 4C Coupe. It generates 177 HP (237 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of maximum torque.
The thing that is quite different is the optional exit lightweight Akrapovic exhaust system that comes with center-mounted tips with carbon fiber surrounds. The performance status hasn't been changed either so the new 4C Spider covers the 0-60 mph run in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph. To bore you even more with listing the same features, just like the 4C Coupe, the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider will be available with the standard and the Racing exhaust system.
Perhaps the most notable alteration is the removable roof which refines the traditional spider body look. And honestly, the open-top is the only thing that I find exiting. Otherwise, it is just the same as its sibling! Almost. The open-air model also receives refined headlights which are somehow slightly more appealing and attractive than the old version. Another new attachment is the set of either 17-inch (front)/18-inch (rear) or 18-inch (front)/19-inch (rear) sizes all-new wheels in Silver or Dark finishes.
The color… In combination with chopping off the roof, adding a new color is the easiest way to expand the range. So by giving the car this saturated yellowness, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider US version kind of really manages to sting one's vision.
Unfortunately, the price hasn't been announced yet.
