After delivering us a boatload of photos and new videos of the 4C last night, Alfa Romeo has now announced official UK pricing for its mid-engine pocket rocket, which will be available for order in October priced from £45,000 (equal to US$71,600 or €53,600 at the current exchange rates) on the road, with first deliveries scheduled for early 2014.
Alfa said that total global production for the 4C will be limited to just 3,500 units, 1,000 of which will be for Europe, without going into country-specific allocations.
In the U.K., and quite possibly elsewhere, the 4C is priced between the base 271hp (275PS) Porsche Cayman that has an OTR of £39,694 (US$63,153 or €47,300) and the faster 321hp (325PS) Cayman S that retails for £48,783 (US$77,600 or €58,100).
We'll have to wait for Alfa to make an official announcement for U.S. pricing, perhaps as early at the LA Auto Show in November, but for what it's worth, in the States, the base Cayman has an MSRP of $52,600 and the Cayman S, of $63,800, meaning a sub $60k price is not too far off (see the results of our poll between the Alfa 4C and the Porsche Cayman here).
In EU-specification, the 4C comes with a 1.75-liter turbocharged inline four rated at 236hp (240PS) offering a zero to 100 km/h (62mph) sprint time of 4.5 seconds and a 258 km/h (160mph) top speed.
