Alfa Romeo 4C concept pictures and video

The Alfa Romeo 4C concept made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, and so far only a few photos have been officially released. The compact “supercar” relies on the classic two-seater formula for its layout. Rear-wheel drive, a length of just over 13 feet, and wheelbase of less than 8 feet combine to give the concept its compact size and agility. The combination of a completely carbon body along with an aluminum frame structure and crash boxes limit the Romeo 4C’s weight to only 1,874 pounds. Powering the 4C concept will be a 4 cylinder 1750 Turbo Petrol engine that pumps out over 200HP and features cutting-edge technology for direct injection, valve timing, and eliminating turbo lag. The Romero 4C is will not be just a concept — the real thing is expected to go on sale in 2012.

Alfa Romeo is an Italian luxury automaker that hasn’t sold a mass-volume model in this country in almost 25 years, since the 1995 164 sedan. So it’s exciting for those who are looking for something different to the typical offerings from Germany (BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi), and Japan (Lexus, Infiniti, Acura).

However, launching a new car brand in one of the most competitive car markets in the world is no easy feat. Not too long ago, we took up the opportunity to have lunch with the director for Alfa Romeo’s North American operations, Pieter Hogeveen, in Manhattan. There, we sat down with Mr. Hogeveen for an exclusive interview to see what the plan is for the coming years.

Alfa Romeo is returning to Formula One after more than 30 years away, as the title sponsor of the Swiss Sauber team. The newly unveiled Alfa Romeo Sauber C37 is the car that will bring the legendary Italian automaker back to F1 circuits and, like all 2018 F1 cars, it has an important new safety feature.

All 2018 F1 cars are required to have the so-called "halo," a safety device designed to prevent driver head injuries. Consisting of a ring around the cockpit supported by a strut in front, the halo was chosen last year after tests of a windshield-like alternative produced unsatisfactory results. The halo has proven controversial because of its looks, as well as concerns about how it might impact performance and the ability of drivers to get out of a car in an emergency.
