Alfa Romeo has introduced the 4C and 4C Launch Edition at the New York Auto Show.

Set to arrive in June, the 4C Launch Edition will be available exclusively in Alfa Red, Rosso Competizione or Madreperla White. The model will come nicely equipped with bi-xenon headlights, carbon fiber mirror caps, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and an aluminum diffuser. Other highlights include a race-tuned suspension, a sports exhaust system, red brake calipers and 18- / 19-inch Dark Gray alloy wheels.

The cabin will feature black microfiber sport seats, a leather-wrapped dashboard and Red or White accent stitching. The special edition will also have an individually-numbered Launch Edition plaque.

Power comes from a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 237 bhp (177 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a twin-clutch transmission which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in the "mid-4 second range" and hit a top speed of 160 mph (257 km/h).
