2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Adds More Options, Coupe Gains Spider’s Goodies [64 Pics]

Alfa Romeo announced some enhancements for the MY216 4C in the US market, which includes both the Coupe and the Spider.

More specifically, the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C can now be ordered with more personalisation options which mainly include more carbon-fiber goodness.

Alfa Romeo now offers an optional carbon-fiber cover for the 4C Spider’s aluminum roll bar while also new is the Carbon Fiber Trim Package, available for both the Coupe and the Spider. The latter adds an instrument panel, shift paddles, instrument cluster surround and vent surrounds made out of the same lightweight material the 4C’s tub is made of.

Furthermore the company offers a premium leather trim option with Tobacco and Black sports seats paired with a black leather interior with Tobacco stitching.

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe also gains some of the features first seen on the Spider counterpart, including the Alpine head unit which provides better audio quality, more user-friendliness and advanced connectivity options.

A dual-mode Akrapovic exhaust system made out of titanium and controlled by Alfa Romeo’s DNA switch, provides an angry soundtrack when needed and features carbon exhaust tips.

The mid-mounted turbocharged 1.75-litre petrol engine still makes 237hp and 258lb ft of torque, sending them to the rear wheels through a double-clutch six-speed TCT gearbox, allowing the 4C to accelerate from zero to 60mph in just 4.1 seconds.

Customers can also choose the optional Track package which includes high-performance shock absorbers with larger front- and rear-sway bars, and available bespoke Pirelli P-Zero tires among others.
