The Alfa Romeo 4C is making an exit, once the dealer supply runs out, sadly this is the end for the production of small sports cars for Alfa Romeo. The discontinuation of the 4C is a part of Alfa Romeo’s new strategy, which recently announced the abandonment of its sports car projects to address other issues in its line up. Despite the success with the Giulia and Stelvio, Alfa Romeo is not present in Europe with its compact SUVs and city cars.

“Since its introduction in 2014, the 4C has been a halo vehicle for Alfa Romeo, exciting enthusiasts around the world and spearheading the relaunch of the brand in North America, the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is an instant Alfa Romeo classic that passes the torch to the next generation of iconic Alfa Romeo vehicles, including the upcoming Tonale PHEV crossover that will start production next year,” said Tim Kuniskis Global Head of Alfa Romeo

Leaving with a BANG!

In conjunction with the announcement of the 4C departure, Alfa Romeo has announced a 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo special edition trim, only manufacturing 33 units of this limited-edition 4C spider available in North America. It’s gorgeous and works as a fitting send-off to the mid-engine sports car that started Alfa Romeo’s return to North America. 

The 33 Stradale

The 1967 33 Stradale is an iconic Alfa Romeo that made its public debut at the Monza circuit on August 31, 1967, on the eve of the 1967 Formula One Italian Grand Prix. Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo honors the 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, the brand’s legendary mid-engine sports car. The 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is finished in a new, exclusive Rosso Villa d’Este tri-coat paint inspired by the original. Coming standard with carbon-fiber trim, Italian flag mirror caps. Finishing it off with limited-edition plaques on the dash, door sills, and center console. Accompanied with gray-gold 5-hole alloy wheels (18-inch front/19-inch rear) and composite sports seats covered in black Dinamica® suede and tobacco (brown) leather.
