Alfa Romeo 4C Is The 2014 WTCC Safety Car
The Alfa Romeo 4C has immediately became one of the most appreciated cars on the market. What is more, the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) chosen it to be a Safety Car during the races. Last week, BMW has introduced the M4 MotoGP Safety Car for this season and now the small Alfa Romeo 4C will take its duties.
The first appearance during a race will be on April 12th – the first round of the season at Moulay El Hassan Circuit of Marrakech in Morocco.
As a reminder, the 2013 Alfa Romeo 4C is powered by a 1.8 liter turbocharged petrol with 240HP at 6,000RPM and 350Nm at 2,000RPM of torque. The engine is connected to a dual-clutch transmission. 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 258 km/h. It will average 6.8 liters / 100 km with CO2 emissions of 157 g/km. All these figures are thanks to the super-low weight of 4C – just 895kg.
The 4C was also named “Most Beautiful Car of 2013″ at the 29th International Automobile Festival of Paris.
