Edmunds Senior Writer Carlos Lago tests and reviews the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. It's difficult to deny the appeal of a carbon-fiber mid-engine sports car like the 4C. Its low weight and absence of features — such as power steering — should make for an engaging driving experience. But how does it work in practice? We'll take this sharp-looking two-seater to our test track to find out. Q: What kind of engine and transmission does the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C have? A: The 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has a turbocharged 1.7-liter four-cylinder (237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque) and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Q: How much does the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider cost? A: The 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider starts at $67,495, including destination. The vehicle tested in this video has a few options, including a pricey Akrapovic exhaust and a track package with a firmer suspension and a flat-bottom steering wheel, that bring the price close to $80,000. Q: How fast is the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider? A: During testing, the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider reached 60 mph in 5.0 seconds (4.8 seconds with a 1-foot rollout, as on a drag strip) and clocked a quarter-mile time of 13.3 seconds at 105.4 mph. Q: What are the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider's main competitors? A: The closest sports car in terms of price, engine type and layout is the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster S. It starts at a slightly higher price, but it's a superior car in terms of handling, refinement and build quality. It also offers vastly more features, too. If you don't mind having a coupe, the 2018 Audi TT RS looks similarly dramatic, and it's quicker in a straight line.
