The most anticipated Italian compact sports car has just surfaced with full photos and some details. The new 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe represents the essence of a sports car and expression of the brand true values, and we also get first glimpse of the interior.

The new 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe was designed with Italian style, performance, and advanced technology to offer maximum driving satisfaction without compromising safety. Such designs we can see in the push-button gear selector and the digital instrument gauge cluster.

The new compact sports car is a two-seater with a mid-engined rear-wheel drive. It features the new 1750 Turbo Petrol engine with direct injection and aluminum block, the “Alfa TCT” twin dry clutch transmission, and the Alfa DNA selector with the new Race mode. No more is the traditionally shift stick, the new 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe comes with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.

More details of the new 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe will be available at Geneva Motor Show next week. It will be available for purchase in 2013, and will be the first car to mark the return of the Italian brand to the United States.

Update: 3/7/2013

The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe has just unwrapped at the Geneva Motor Show today, and it is lighter than ever before. It weighs in at just 1,973 pounds, which is very light for the 236-hp turbocharged engine to handle. The lightweight is due to the uses of carbon fiber components throughout.

The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C sports coupe will make its premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, with first deliveries near the end of the year. While the European version will be available in September at a starting price of around €60,000 ($78,000).
