Alfa Romeo has begun accepting orders for the 4C Spider in the United Kingdom.

Priced from £59,500 OTR, the 4C Spider follows in the footsteps of the 4C Coupe but adopts projector-style xenon headlights, a new engine cover and an aluminum roll bar that is hidden underneath a black “halo.”

The interior also echoes the coupe and features fabric seats, aluminum trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.  Other notable highlights air conditioning, contrast stitching and an Alfa Hi Fi sound system.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 240 PS (176 kW) and 349 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.  It is connected to a twin-clutch transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 160 mph (257 km/h).
