The Alfa Romeo 4C is one beautiful little coupe, even now, more than a year on from its first showing as a concept car. It's headed to production, and likely even the U.S.
, and now, it looks like it might arrive early.
That's great news for sports car fans, as the punchy little style-monger is expected to go for about $45,000
while ticking the sub-1,900-pound and over-200-horsepower boxes.
According to Autocar
, deliveries for the Alfa 4C weren't going to begin until early 2014 under earlier plans, though we've known for some time that production was expected to begin the ramp-up process sometime in 2013
. Now, it looks like the car could be ready for prime time as early as next summer.
Unfortunately, only about 20,000 are thought to be planned for the car's entire five-year run, meaning that they'll likely go for a premium over the relatively reasonable sticker price. As many as 10,000 additional 4C Spyders may be built, however, meaning a total of about 30,000 4Cs could see construction.
Only a portion of those will land in the U.S., but we'll be keeping our feelers out for the first to arrive, and hopefully, we'll be able to bring you our first-drive impressions even before that.
