Alfa Romeo 4C safety car unveiled
Will be used at the FIM World Superbike Championship
Alfa Romeo has unveiled their 4C safety car, ahead of its debut at the FIM World Superbike Championship this weekend.
Dressed to impress, the one-off model has a two-tone exterior with red, white and green stripes running the length of the body.
Like the standard model, the safety car is powered by a 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 240 HP (176 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a dual-clutch transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 155 mph (250 km/h).
According to Alfa Romeo UK Head Damien Dally, “Alfa Romeo is a proud sponsor of the FIM World Superbike Championship having been associated with the series for seven years now. As we prepare to launch the Alfa 4C here in the UK, it’s fantastic to be able to showcase this car to the public for a second time as it takes to the prestigious Silverstone circuit.”
