if there’s one thing alfa romeo has learned from years of victory on the racetracks it’s that balance is key the mid-engine layout rear-wheel drive and monocoque chassis give each 4c model ideal weight distribution with amazing handling and control with its rear-wheel drive 4c makes full use of the dynamic advantages afforded by this configuration rear-wheel drive allows better grip under acceleration when engine power throws weight toward the rear of the car rear-wheel drive also lets you enter curves at higher speeds delivering a far more intense and rewarding driving experience its groundbreaking centrally mounted aluminum engine significantly reduces weight as it eliminates the need for a driveshaft and optimizes weight distribution by concentrating mass near the center of the vehicle all of this means the alfa romeo 4c will accelerate as quickly as cars boasting higher horsepower — yet will corner sharper brake harder turn in quicker and respond more readily
