New Alfa 4C Bicycle will Cost You Between €3,500 to €9,000 or $4.7k to $12.2k

If you were bummed about the starting price of the new Alfa Romeo 4C four-cylinder mid-engined coupe that creeps well into Porsche Cayman S territory, you’ll probably feel the same about the Italian automaker’s latest project: the ‘4C IFD Bicycle’.

Designed by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre and made by Italy’s Compagnia Ducale, the lightweight and sleek-looking human powered two-wheeler will go on sale this December in Europe, Asia and America with prices ranging from €3,500 to €9,000 or $4,700 to $12,200 at today’s exchange rates, depending on equipment.

The IFD in the bicycle’s name is an acronym for ‘Innovative Frame Design’, which refers to the “C”-shaped cross-section of the frame made from the same carbon-fibre half-tube materials used on the chassis of the Alfa Romeo 4C.

According to Alfa, the bicycle weighs 6.9 kg or 15.21 lbs in base form.
