Alfa Romeo's U.S. launch has been delayed time after time, so it comes as little surprise that the company has suffered another setback.
In a statement, Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau said the Alfa Romeo 4C will likely be launched in the second quarter of 2014. This, of course, is a few months later than the promised date of late 2013.
In related news, Auto Guide is reporting that Alfa Romeo's Davide Kluzer has confirmed the 4C will be priced from $54,000 in the United States. This would make it more expensive than the Porsche Cayman but significantly cheaper than the Lotus Evora.
As a refresher, the Alfa Romeo 4C has a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 240 HP (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a dual-clutch transmission that enables the 895 kg (1973 lb) sports car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 258 km/h (160 mph).
