Alfa Romeo 4C gets a two-wheel version

Alfa Romeo Style Centre has a surprise for its fans. In collaboration with Compagnia Ducale they hace designed a bicycle inspired from the 4C. The bicycle will be available for purchase starting with this year`s December with a pricing that starts at 3.500 Euros.



The 4C IFD Bicycle features a light weight designed frame as the IFD (Innovative Frame Design) indicates. Just like the 4C Alfa Romeo, the bicycle`s frame is as light as possible. When  designing the vehicle, engineers took hours of research in order to create a weight/power ratio under 4 Kg/ HP. The choice of lightweight efficient materials resulted into a 895 Kg vehicle made out of carbon fibre, steel, lightened SMC and aluminium. The 4C was revealed during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Due to its dynamic design and setup the car hits a maximum speed of 250 Km/ h ( 155 mph) and can go from 0 to 100 Km. h (0-62 mph) in approximately 4.5 seconds.



The bicycle`s structure is entirely inspired from the sporty streamline design of the Alfa Romeo 4C. The frame features a unique `C` shaped cross section made out of the same material used to produce the vehicle. Alfa Romeo made a world premiere when they were the first to use the lightweight material for a car`s chassis.



Due to its carbon fibre chassis and fork the bicycle`s curb weight is of only 6.9 Kg (15.2 lbs). The bicycle will be produced in Italy and crafted entirely by hand. The costs of the bicycle vary from 3.500 Euros to 9000 Euros depending on the equipment opted for. The bicycle will be available for purchase on the Asian, European and North American markets.



The manufacturer describes the bicycle as `the ideal companion of the amazing Alfa Romeo 4C - a perfect combination of passion and future.`
