The nearly 20-year wait is over – Alfa Romeo made its return to Canada at Montreal's Grand Prix, unveiling its 2015 4C two-seat sports car Thursday at the annual Crescent Street Grand Prix Festival.
"What better place to debut an all-new performance vehicle inspired by Alfa Romeo's legendary racing history, than at a festival celebrating the largest motorsports event in Canada?" said Reid Bigland, president and CEO of Chrysler Canada, in a press release. "With its purposeful design for maximum performance, the all-new 4C coupe is sure to be the talk of the Crescent Street Grand Prix Festival."
The Alfa Romeo 4C features a 237-horsepower, 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine and a dynamic twin-clutch transmission wrapped in a light-weight carbon-fibre body. It's sure to go like stink as the little two-seater only weighs 998 kilograms (2,200 pounds). It goes on sale in Canada this summer. Pricing has not been announced but the base model is expected to sell for about $54,000 (U.S.) south of the border.
