PHILLIP ISLAND – Feb 21, 2014: The Australian public will get its first glimpse of the Alfa Romeo 4C supercar at Phillip Island this weekend.

The 4C will perform as official safety car for the opening round of the 2014 World Superbike Championship as part of Alfa Romeo’s exclusive global partnership with the series.

4C has created waves in the automotive world since its inception, winning four prominent international awards and earning widespread critical acclaim.

The compact supercar delivers potent performance thanks to its combination of total dry weight of just 895kg – achieved through the extensive use of carbon fibre – and turbocharged, direct injection four-cylinder engine that produces 177kW and 350Nm of torque.

It accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 258km/h.

Optimal weight distribution of 40 per cent over the front axle and 60 per cent over the rear contributes to balanced, racecar-like handling.

Alfa Romeo 4C will launch in Australia later this year.
