Last week Alfa Romeo confirmed the 4C’s Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time of 8 minutes and 4 seconds, which is a new record for cars with engines under 250 hp. Now the Italian carmaker has released a video that includes footage from the 4C’s Nürburgring lap record. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see the entire lap, but a full on-board video will probably surface later.
Still, the 4C seems to be in its element at the ‘Ring, although the car does look a little peculiar because of the black tape that was used to seal the gaps between the body panels. The exact lap time set by journalist and Nordschleife expert Horst von Saurma on September 12 is 8:04.40.
The video contains some on-board footage during which we can hear the lovely sound of the 236-hp 1.75-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and we can see the Alfa Romeo 4C reaching speeds in excess of 225 km/h (140 mph).
