Alfa Romeo has a lot riding on the successful launch of the 4C, so the company is keeping up the hype by releasing a new video of Marc Gené driving the model on a track.

In the clip, we see Gené reaching speeds of up to 212 km/h (131 mph) and saying the car is stable and handles extremely well. Interesting, some unfortunate captioning reveals "It breaks a lot. It really breaks..." We assume Gené is referring to the model's braking but it is an Alfa, so who knows.

The 4C will go on sale later this year and feature a 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 240 HP (176 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. This will enable the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 155 mph (250 km/h).
