2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia Limited Special Edition

Unlike the Coupe, the 4C Spider will live on in North America.

Misano Blue Metallic exterior paint will only be found on the Italia model, as will the piano black front air intake and rear diffuser

If you were shocked to hear that the Alfa Romeo 4C was still in production for the 2019 model year (albeit only in the Spider body style), it’s surely even more shocking to learn that it will continue through the 2020 model year. At the Chicago auto show, Alfa has unveiled a new limited edition of the 4C Spider that is one of the most truly limited limited editions we have encountered in a long time. It’s called the 4C Spider Italia, and Alfa will build just 15 examples.

Inside, the special-edition 4C includes an aluminum dashboard insert with a ‘4C Spider Italia’ logo and a numbered plate on the center console highlighting its exclusivity.

Pricing for the 2020 4C Spider hasn’t changed from the 2019 model year, so the Italian sports car will still set you back at least $66,900. The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia carries a $5,000 premium, however, bringing the total to $71,900, plus a $1,595 destination charge.

A rear backup camera, cruise control, and rear parking sensors also come as standard to sweeten the deal. Orders will open up in the second quarter of this year.

Like the standard 4C, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.7-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Those figures may sound rather modest, but thanks to its lightweight Formula 1-inspired carbon fiber monocoque chassis, the 4C delivers an impressive 10.4 power-to-weight ratio, weighs less than 2,500 pounds, and does the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.1 seconds before hitting a top speed of 160 mph.

Alfa Romeo will begin producing the special 4C Spider Italia edition later this year, with more details on the 2020 model to come before launch.
