When the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C goes on sale in this summer in 86 dealerships across the U.S. and Canada, it'll start at $69,695, including a hefty $1,295 destination fee. That price applies to the limited Launch Edition model, which goes on sale first and is limited to a serialized run of 500 models. The standard 4C coupe will follow this fall and start at $55,195 including destination.
The mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive 4C is powered by an all-aluminum 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.75-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Alfa pegs the 4C's zero-to-60-mph time in the mid-4-second range and says the coupe has a top speed of 160 mph.
Inside, the curvaceous coupe has room for two and a bare-bones cabin; the Launch Edition model adds black microfiber sport seats, more leather trim, red or white interior accent stitching and a unique "Launch Edition" plaque. Other Launch Edition upgrades include a race-tuned suspension, performance-tuned shocks and specific exhaust.

Alfa Romeo fans, warm up your credit cards: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced today the names of 86 dealers that will operate an Alfa Romeo franchise in the U.S. and Canada. We've known that the brand is on its way back to the U.S. for a while, but it's taken years for the specifics to be unveiled. After the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C's official launch in New York earlier this year, the details are finally becoming clear, including where shoppers can get their hands on the stunning new coupe.
The initial list of dealers was drawn from existing Fiat and Maserati dealers in 33 states — 82 dealers in the U.S. and four in Canada. Peter Grady, vice president of Chrysler Group Network Development, said he expects the dealer network to eventually exceed 300 franchises in North America.
The 2015 4C is set to go on sale later this year; the special 4C Launch Edition will be the first to go on sale. Check out the complete list of dealerships below.
Now that auto show season is over, the wait is over when it comes to seeing which new cars will hit dealerships soon, but now the real wait begins.
There's plenty to look forward to, because there are almost too many new vehicles to choose from such as the redesigned, more modern Ford Mustang and the sleek, futuristic electric car from BMW, the i8. They're not all sports cars though; the tiny Jeep Renegade SUV and midsize Hyundai Sonata sedan are also on our list.

It's uncommon to have 100 percent turnover on our list of most-watched videos, but this week's roster is all-new. The pack of debuts is led by Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays' First Look at the 2015 Kia Sedona during the 2014 New York International Auto Show. He was impressed by the minivan, particularly the interior, which boasts pop-out ottomans for the second row. First Looks from the auto show dominated the entire list, with 2015 models including the Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW X4 and Toyota Camry. Check out what was popular.
From the moment mere cooperation between Fiat and Chrysler was hinted at (long before partnership, much less ownership), auto enthusiasts have predicted and pined for the return of Alfa Romeo to the U.S. market. It's finally happening with the 2015 Alfa 4C.
Alfa Romeo is known for fabulous Italian styling, but I admit I've occasionally had doubts. Maybe it's just because I thought my 1970s Fiat Spider was better looking than the Alfa Romeo Spider, which nonetheless got more attention ... and a higher resale value.
It's been a while since Alfa Romeo cars were sold in the U.S., but the brand is back with a head-turning new coupe that debuted at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. After many delays, Alfa Romeo says the 2015 4C will go on sale in June.
The curvaceous two-passenger sports coupe's low, wide stance; gaping nose air intakes and large triangular shield grille is sure to draw enthusiasts into dealerships.

For the first time in nearly two decades, Alfa Romeo returns to the U.S. with the 4C, a mid-engine, two-seat sports coupe, bringing with it an iconic reputation — and allusions to '90s R&B one-hit wonders by Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The 4C, debuting at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, carries the brand's signature grille, carbon-fiber accents, a 237-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder and scant interior comforts. Mays says you can expect the 4C to hit dealerships in late June with a price starting around $54,000. For now, watch the video above for Mays' Montell Jordan references, which are priceless.
Competes with: Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type
Looks like: It's stunning and resembles a smaller, sleeker version of Alfa's limited-production 8C Competizione
Drivetrain: All-aluminum, 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.75-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission
Hits dealerships: The limited-production Launch Edition model goes on sale first in June, followed by the regular 4C
After many, many delays, the Alfa Romeo 4C is finally here. We've been hearing about the impending arrival of the compact, lightweight sports coupe, which marks the return of the Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S., since 2010 when parent Fiat announced a 2012 on-sale date. We got a glimpse at a would-be production version last year, but it never went on sale.
Better late than never; the actual production model was just unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and the automaker promised a June on-sale date. Two versions will be offered, the 4C and a limited-edition 4C Launch Edition; only 500 of the latter will be available and it will go on sale first.
The Alfa Romeo 4C has become an auto-industry punch line, a car whose ETA is in perpetual delay — sort of like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's backup-camera mandate. It looks like Alfa will beat NHTSA to the punch: The Detroit News reports that Maserati dealerships will sell the lightweight sports car in June 2014.
We'll believe it when we see it. Fiat first showed a 4C concept at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show. A production version bowed two years later with U.S. sales promised sometime in 2013. That didn't happen, but at least this latest announcement keeps with the delay Fiat issued in September 2013. High-performing Fiat dealerships — some of which are standalone dealers, some of which are incorporated into Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram showrooms — will get the car, too, though exact timing remains elusive. Maserati and Alfa Romeo are two subsidiaries of the recently merged Fiat Chrysler Automobile.
