Aside from the gorgeous lines of the Alfa Romeo 4C, there was very little information released about the car when it debuted earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. With the sleek coupe reportedly already in production and a North American debut planned for the LA Auto Show, details about the mid-engine Alfa have finally been leaked out thanks to some dealer brochures found by AutoEdizione.

With dimensions of 157 inches long, 73 inches wide and 46.5 inches tall, the 4C is about the same length as a Mazda Miata but is lower and wider. Thanks to its curb weight of just under 2,000 pounds and the 241-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, acceleration from 0-60 should happen in less than 4.5 seconds to go with a top speed of 160 miles per hour. Like the car itself, extra space is limited in the 4C with just 3.8 cubic-feet of space available for cargo.

In terms of options, Alfa Romeo will offer the car in six different exterior colors and four different interior colors (to go with two seat types). Buyers will also be able to choose between four brake caliper colors and four wheel options. Head on over to AutoEdizione for the full rundown of specs... and features, too, if you can read German.

      Why are so many of you of the opinion that those headlights are optional? Where did you get that info? The leaked brochure only tells me (I'm German) that you'll be able to get the car with a headlight housing made of carbon fiber. But since the housing shown on the Autoblog pictures in this article looks quite unlike the carbon fiber version in the brochure, they'd have to offer three different options for the headlights to accomodate the clear-glass option. That, I think, is unlikely. I think that what's in the pictures above is what we're gonna get. I speculate that – if Alfa really brings the car to market like this – that there will be a facelift in a couple of years that comes with clear headlights, and that the early models will go down in automotive history as a gorgeous car that was tragically ruined by it's weird headlights. Maybe one day the 4C will rise in value because collectors like cars with blemishes like this. It might be known as the "amphibious Alfa", and every aspiring car enthusiast will be able to tell the story of how this came to be and how it ended. Sometimes I wish companies would employ a common-sense-person whose only function is to keep the company from making unneccessary, almost universally recognised mistakes like these headlights.

      actually, (according to autoedizione) it has a 1,973 lb (895 kg) *dry* weight. which puts its curb weight at right around 2,200. still awesome, but the difference between a ~8.2 weight to power ratio and a ~9.1 weight to power ratio = significant.

      So no one likes the lights? I wonder what they might look like in person and when turned on at night. If by chance they don't work out, I wonder if it would be possible to put the 8c headlights in. I hope I find a winning lottery ticket or get a massive raise soon. I would love to have this in my garage.

      Can't wait to see this car in the US. Curious how they are going to sell it. Are they're going to be stand alone Alfa dealers or are they gonna sell alongside Fiats(typically Dodge dealers) or maybe with Maseratis

      Is it too late to hope that they will come to their senses and fix the headlights?
