The increase in performance for the A lfa Romeo 4C is quickly ticked off. A newly programmed engine control increases the output of the 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder to 275 hp. The maximum torque climbs to 400 Nm. This means that the Alfa Romeo 4C will then accelerate from zero to 100 km /h in 4.3 seconds. The top speed is reached at 265 km /h.
Carbon reduces weight by 15 kg
Am Alfa 4C to save a few more kilograms more commitment ahead. In the case of Zender, the use of carbon fiber laminate. The front apron, the rear apron, the side skirts, the engine cover, the exterior mirror housings and the headlight surrounds are replaced by carbon components. The new aerodynamic components not only ensure less weight, but their shape also means more downforce at the front and rear. The design of the side skirts is intended to optimize the ventilation of the engine compartment and the transmission oil cooler. As a special treat, Zender installed a new roof element with a removable middle section. In total, the new components should reduce the weight of the 4C from 895 to 880 kilograms. Together with the additional power, the power-to-weight ratio should improve from 3.73 kg /PS to 3.20 kg /PS.
The interior of the Alfa Romeo 4C upgrades Zender with quilted leather /Alcantara equipment. Seams in a contrasting color attract additional attention. The headliner is covered with Alcantara and carbon. The Zender interior is rounded off by slightly larger carbon shift paddles.
