2021 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider
2021 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo has hit the market, with several confirmed examples covering the Australian coast. The special edition 4C, limited to 33 units for the US market, pays homage to Alfa Romeo’s legendary mid-engined sports car 33 Stradale from 1967.
What distinguishes the 33 Stradale Tributo from the “standard” 4C Spider is the three-layer exterior paintwork “Rosso Villa d’Este”, five-hole alloy wheels in 18-inch gold at the front and 19-inch rear, composite sports seats with a brown cover and black Dinamica suede, red Finish for the 4C carbon fiber monocoque chassis and unique numbered badges on the dashboard, side skirts, and center console.
Engine, Transmission, and Power
The 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo retains the regular 1.75-liter turbo four-cylinder petrol engine, which sends 177 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The Australian model manages a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km / h.

Interior and Comfort
The 4C’s cabin is a throwback to simpler times before distractions like infotainment screens and Bluetooth audio players became commonplace. Everything is pretty romantic, vintage roadster style.
As soon as you are seated in the driver’s seat, the intimate cabin appears to envelop you with all controls within reach. Also, do not plan to shop at 4C, as the available cargo space is barely enough for a backpack.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The basic audio system is just as simple. But that doesn’t matter, because you probably won’t hear it, the 4C is always loud inside. We recommend the upgraded Alpine audio system. The main unit looks like it was picked up at a Best Buy sale, but it comes with better speakers and a subwoofer.
If you’re looking for other infotainment features, you won’t find them. Do you need directions? Crack the card or your smartphone. SiriusXM satellite radio? Forget it. WiFi onboard? Not.
