New Alfa Romeo 4C in 2019, no manual though!

New Alfa Romeo 4C in 2019, no manual though!

Alfa Romeo’s swansong, the 4C sports car, had created a furore when it was launched back in 2014. It was everything that Alfa Romeo promised – light, fast, nimble and insane around a racetrack. But unlike other supercars, you just couldn’t drive it every day.

Well, while the speed is going to remain the same, the inconvenience is all set to go. Roberto Fedeli, chief engineer for Alfa and Maserati, has confirmed an improved 4C which will debut in 2018. Alfa wants the 4C to be its halo car and be better at it.

The unbelievably stiff ride which made it almost un-roadworthy will go away. May be it will get the smart electronic suspension that unleashes its potential at the flick of a switch. The manual steering will be power-assisted and the other little niggles that have been pointed over the years will be ironed out. It might also get the new 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-pot engine that develops almost 300bhp of power but it will not get a manual option for sure. That is because of the lack of demand and the humungous development costs.

With Alfa Romeo returning to Formula 1, it wants the 4C to be the flagbearer of its engineering prowess in road cars. If all goes well, which we hope it will, the new Alfa Romeo 4C should start deliveries in early 2019.
