Alfa Romeo 4C Spider's Safety and Handling Features

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider's Safety and Handling Features

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is designed from the ground up to provide the best protection possible for you and your passenger. The carbon fibre monocoque and Sheet Moulding Composite (SMC) outer body are highly resistant to impact and provide excellent protection. The Spider's double-wishbone front suspension and Macpherson rear suspension provide optimal traction and handling through the most extreme maneuvers. And that's just the beginning.

      • Electronic Assistance – The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider features several electronic systems that help improve handling and safety, like Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), and the Q2 electronic differential. Using the Alfa DNA System mode selector, you can control how these systems behave, to give you maximum assistance, or minimal interventions as you drive.

      • Alfa DNA System – Alfa DNA is a master system which lets the driver select a mode of driving, and the system automatically adjusts the behaviors of the electronic handling systems to suit. Natural mode offers best fuel economy, smooth shifting and comfortable ride; Dynamic mode provides faster accelerator and gearshift response and limits intervention from ESC; All-Weather mode offers the greatest assistance from the electronic handling systems, to provide best traction in adverse conditions; and Race mode, the most aggressive, offers the driver greatest control with least intervention.

      • Braking – The Spider's anti-lock brake system, in combination with the premium Brembo brakes, can bring the car from 100 kilometres an hour to full stop in just 36 metres. With 17-inch tyres in front and 18-inch tyres on the rear, you get the extra traction you need to prevent skidding when you need to brake hard, or any other time. The cross-drilled, self-ventilated brake discs are designed not to overheat or warp during extreme use.
