The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, a vehicle that is styled with ultra-rigid construction, makes world premiere in prototype form at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Alfa Romeo says the vehicle is designed to be aerodynamically efficient and to minimize the open-top turbulence.

The vehicle is designed with a carbon fiber rollover bars, spoiler, and windscreen frame. Moreover, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider also has a carbon fiber clamshell headlight. It also has a new dual-stage exhaust system with titanium and carbon tailpipes by Akrapovic, a company which produces competition exhaust systems for numerous motorcycle classes including Moto GP, Superbike, Supersport, Motocross and Enduro.

The interior of the vehicle is dominated by carbon fiber materials that is visible in the center console, door sills, and rear bulkhead.

It is powered by an all aluminum four-cylinder 1750 Turbo Petrol engine. The 4C Spider can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h. Power is transmitted via a six-speed, dual dry-clutch Alfa TCT transmission to the rear wheels.
