2017 Alfa Romeo 4C


Lot details

Registration No: NL17 UFC
Chassis No: ZAR9600000M188189
MOT: June 2024

  • 16,500 miles from new and just 3 former keepers
  • Offered with FSH and service plan into September 2023
  • Fitted with optioned paint and factory racing pack
  • New battery and recently shod with 4 Michelin pilot sport tyres
  • Custom car cover, original cleaning kit and electric pump

Inspired by its 8C Competizione supercar sibling, the Alfa Romeo 4C (Tipo 960) was launched at the 2013 Geneva Saloon. Penned by Marco Tencone of Alfa Romeo Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, the stunning sports car featured a carbonfibre central tub, carbonfibre outer panels and aluminium subframes. Weighing just 1,118kg and powered by a turbocharged 1750cc DOHC four-cylinder engine allied to six-speed Dual Dry Clutch transmission, the 4C had some 237bhp/258lbft on tap and was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds and 160mph. Equipped with all-round independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and rack and pinion steering, the two-seater managed an 8min 4sec lap of the Nurburgring and could generate 1.1g laterally. Tasked with forming the model’s carbonfibre tub, Adler Plastic failed to meet their volume targets. Indeed, the 4C proved considerably more expensive and time consuming to make than Alfa Romeo had envisaged. A barely heavier Spider version arrived in 2015 but production of both variants ceased during the Covid-19 pandemic. A decidedly rare sight, just 556 are understood to have been UK supplied (with 298 of those being Coupes).

Finished in special order Competizione Red, ‘NL17 UFC’ has covered just 16,500 miles from new. Fitted with the desirable Factory Racing Pack which includes suspension and exhaust upgrades, the Alfa Romeo is reportedly accompanied by a full service history and has the added benefit of a transferable service plan that runs into September 2023. Recently treated to a new battery and four Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, the 4C is trimmed in Black with contrasting Red stitching. An undoubted modern classic and among the best looking cars of its generation, this increasingly collectible Alfa Romeo is offered for sale with a custom car cover, original cleaning kit, electric pump, owner’s wallet, handbooks, service book, 2 keys and V5C registration document.
