Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor show in September 2012, Alfa Romeo have released some more details of the stunning 4C concept and pictures of the car in a colour they call Liquid Metal. Confirmed details are that the car will be made from Aluminium and Carbonfibre. The chassis will be made by Dallara, of KTM X-Bow fame. This will keep the weight to 850kg, a real Lotus rival and Cayman baiter.
Engine and transmission details remain unchanged from earlier reports, a turbocharged 1750cc 4 cylinder unit, already used in the Mito and Giulietta. This unit will be coupled to the TCT twin-clutch automatic gearbox which is also found in current cars. The major difference of the 4C is the lightweight 2 seater format and mid engined setup that should make this an enthralling car.
