The new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a vehicle whose beastly performance and elegant design make it appeal to a diverse array of race car lovers.

This magnificent sports car is equipped with a small but surprisingly powerful 1.7-liter engine that is capable of pumping out as much as 237 horsepower, in addition to a hugely impressive 258 pounds-feet of torque. The power is routed to the rear wheels via a sequential automated clutch transmission. The car weighs only around 2,500 pounds, meaning that it is capable of zooming from zero to 60 miles per hour in only four seconds.

Ultimately, this new Alfa Romero 4C Spider proves that one of the best ways to get a sports car to offer impressive performance attributes is by combining a powerful engine and lightweight body.
