The NRING’s have exclusive features including numbered badges in the carbon fibre dashboard insert, a Circuito Grey exterior exclusive to this edition, carbon-ceramic brakes, Sparco racing seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, Mopar automatic transmission knob with carbon insert, leather and Alcantara steering wheel with carbon inserts as standard. The front badge and the mirror caps are made of carbon fibre, as are the side skirt inserts, while tinted windows, active cruise control, Harman Kardon premium audio package, and Alfa Connect 3D Nav infotainment system with 8.8-inch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and DAB complete the package. The Giulia version also has a new bare carbon fiber roof.
The 4C’s are both powered by an all-aluminium 240 hp 1,750 cc turbo engine, with intercooler and continuous twin phase variators. Combined with the TCT automatic transmission, it delivers supercar performance: weight-to-power ratio of less than 4 kg/hp, top speed of 160 mph (159 mph for the 4C Spider), 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds, lateral acceleration of 1.1g and maximum braking deceleration of 1.25g. This performance is aided by the use of ultralight materials, including carbon fibre for the shell, aluminium for the front and rear subframes and SMC (low density compound) for the bodywork.
The 88th Geneva International Motor Show runs from March 8-18, 2018.
