MODENA, ITALY – Feb 11, 2014: Alfa Romeo’s highly anticipated 4C has won its fourth major international accolade for 2014, with readers of Polish magazines Motor and Auto Moto voting it the best vehicle in the 'Sports cars and convertibles' category of the ‘2013 Auto Lider’ (Auto Leader) awards.

4C, which will be launched in Australia later this year, triumphed against 20 other models to take the prize as 160,000 readers cast their votes.

BMW 4-Series and Porsche 911 Turbo S were second and third respectively.

4C has previously won top honours in the “Most Beautiful Car of the Year 2013” at the International Automobile Festival in France, the “Best Cars 2014” award from Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport magazine and the highest prize in the Sports Car category of the ‘Le auto che preferisco’ (The cars I like) from Italian monthly Quattroruote.

4C was designed by Alfa Romeo engineers and it is built at the Maserati plant in Modena, Italy.

It features extensive use of lightweight materials including carbon fibre to give it a total dry weight of just 895kg.

The sports coupe accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds on the way to a top speed of 258km/h.

An optimal weight distribution of 40 per cent over the front axle and 60 per cent over the rear aids its racecar-like handling.
