Alfa Romeo‘s long-rumored 4C Spider has become a reality as the Italian sportscar manufacturer has unveiled the sleek convertible in Geneva. Adapted from the original coupe, the Spider edition of the 4C boasts a canvas soft top in conjunction with carbon fiber construction for the roll bars, windscreen frame and spoilers – thus adding just 132 lbs for the new open-top conversion. Additional details include a Akrapovic-sourced dual exhaust system of titanium and carbon fiber – complete with an electrically-operated valve system for improved performance and sound – brand new carbon fiber clamshell headlights and modified alloy wheels. Under the hood, the Spider retains the 4C’s four-cylinder 1.75-liter turbocharged gas engine and dual-clutch 6-speed TCT gearbox – a setup offering 240 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque, acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds, and a top speed of 155 mph. The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is set to make its way into production in the early part of 2015.
