If there's one Alfa Romeo model that may come to the U.S. after all, it's the upcoming production version of the 4C mid-engine sports coupe concept that was first seen at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
A reader from the online edition of Autoweek magazine captured a heavily camouflaged prototype of the 4C testing on a Michigan expressway last Friday, January 11.
Alfa Romeo had recently sent out a New Year's greeting card hinting at the introduction of the 4C in 2013, but nothing more. The word on the street, however, is that we may see the final model as early as the Geneva Motor Show in March.
In concept guise, the 4C sported a 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit delivering 200 or more horses to the rear axle through a twin dry clutch automatic transmission.
