The Italians at Alfa Romeo took the 4C on the Nurburgring circuit in early September. Today, the company confirms that the model managed to lap the well-known German circuit in 8 minutes and 4 seconds.
As you probably know, the Alfa Romeo 4C uses a 1.75-liter four-cylinder unit producing 240 horses and 350Nm of torque, making the 0-100 km/h sprint possible in 4,5 seconds with a top speed of 258 km/h.
The specific model driven by Horst van Saurma used special Pirelli AR P Zero Trofeo tires, specially made for this model.
Even more, the officials say that the Alfa Romeo 4C is the fastest “under 250hp” car to hit the Nurburgring circuit. The total mass of just 895 kilograms was clearly a decisive feature which helped the 4C to lap the track that quick.
The new Alfa Romeo 4C is going to be offered in a limited run of 3,500 units per year, 1,000 being reserved for Europe.
