North American fans of the luxurious Alfa Romeo badge may begin to jump up and down all around you…do not be alarmed. After a long hiatus, the Alfa Romeo brand will now be available stateside with a shockingly lowered starting price of around $55k. That makes the brand attainable both geographically and economically for an entirely new market.
The starting price of the next-gen, the Alfa Romeo 4C, is the truly surprising aspect of this news. For less than a new Audi, one can own an Alfa Romeo. This will all be made possible through a new network of dealerships strategically located throughout the United States and Canada. The end result will be an astounding 82 Alfa Romeo dealers over 33 states. Those wielding the largest concentration are not difficult to guess, they will be California, Florida and Texas. Canada will only get 4 dealerships…because…eh, it is Canada and most of them end up in Florida and California anyways.
The list of coming dealerships should be released reasonably soon. Those dealerships will only have a single product to sell at the starting line, the Alfa Romeo 4C. The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C will be hitting North American shores over the next few months and we expect some lavish introduction parties at dealerships everywhere. The first of the fleet made available will be a limited run of 500 dubbed the “Launch Edition” of the 4C. These units will have an MSRP starting at $69k based on their novelty, while the regular car will be just $55k when it rolls out.
The Alfa Romeo 4C at a glance:
- Turbocharged inline 4 cylinder
- Dual overhead cam
- Direct injection
- Plenty of carbon fiber components
- Performance is estimated at 0-60 miles per hour in the 4.3 second range with a top speed of 160 miles per hour.
More details to come as the Alfa Romeo North American dealerships begin to pop up and celebrate.
