Alfa Romeo has unveiled its 'Launch Edition' model of the new 4C sports car.

Costing €60,000 (approximately £52,000), the Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition is distinguished from the normal car by additional carbonfibre trim, white or red paint, distinctive badging, bi-LED headlights, a rear aluminium diffuser with a dark finish and large burnished alloy wheels.

It also includes coloured brake calipers, a racing exhaust system, an aftermarket air cleaner, a specifically calibrated suspension system, additional front air intakes and minor interior changes.

Powered by a 237bhp turbocharged four-cylinder Alfa Romeo 1750 TBi engine, coupled with Alfa's TCT dual-clutch transmission, official figures state that the 4C can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds. Its top speed is "in excess" of 155mph.

Only 400 will be available in Europe, Africa and the Middle East; 500 will be sold in North America and 100 in the rest of the world.

Each Launch Edition additionally grants the buyer the opportunity to take part in an event in Italy that includes a driver training session.

The Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition is available to order now for around £52,000. Pricing for the standard 4C has yet to be announced but it's thought to be less than £50,000.

Alfa Romeo 4C
Alfa 4C is built to encapsulate all of the Alfa Romeo brand values

The 4C is Alfa's first true driver's car for decades, and it shows how brilliantly a small turbo four can go and sound in a lightweight package

Concept car's lights and mirrors nicer

The concept car's lights and mirrors were nicer than these. Shame they changed them.

I hope Alfa well and

I hope Alfa well and desperately want this to be a great drivers car with no excuses.

BUT, I also sometimes wish I was an advisor to car firms. Put normal lights on the car!! These look so cheap and nasty. Take those vent things off the front wings. They look awful. Nice small mirrors mounted at the base of the a pilar would be so much better.
