WR TV: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Track Package

Cars, Reviews I By Bradley Iger I October 10, 2014
In may have been just a few weeks ago that we were behind the wheel of a 4C, but when someone once again handed us the keys to one of the best handling cars on sale – one that’s even sharper and more visceral than the standard 4C – you better believe we jumped at the chance to get behind the wheel.
This 4C differs from our review car mainly with its inclusion of the Track Package – a more aggressive suspension setup – and the optional racing exhaust system, which ditches mufflers altogether. Power from the 1.7-liter turbocharged four cylinder motor still stands at 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and the car weighs in at approximately 2440 pounds wet. Utilizing the launch control system, 0-60 mph is dealt with in a brief 4.1 seconds, and the quarter mile comes up in 12.8 seconds, while the Brembo-supplied brakes can get the car to a stop from 60 mph in 96 feet.
We noted that the manual steering we praised in our review car is even better here with the uprated suspension tuning, and 4C truly shines on twisty roads like the ones we found in our drive through the hills of Malibu provided that you do your own shifting, as the gearbox seemed a little too busy when left to its own devices. Also, if you want the full 4C experience, the uncorked exhaust system is definitely the way to go:
