Alfa Romeo has released a special version of the 4C Spider Roadster. As the name suggests, the bright red 33 Stradale Tributo is dedicated to the historic 33 Stradale model of 1967 – and it also marks the end of sales of the model in North America.
The special version of the 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is inspired by the model 33 Stradale, which Alfa Romeo produced from 1967 to 1969. The rear-wheel drive sports car was a road version of the racing Tipo 33, with a mid-engine layout and a super-small circulation of only 18 copies. The “Stradale” was powered by a V8 2.0 (230 forces and 206 Nm), which allowed the car weighing 570 kilograms to accelerate to a “hundred” in 5.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the sports car was 260 kilometers per hour.
For more similarity with the historical prototype, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale body was first painted in red three-layer Rosso Villa d’este, which is complemented by Golden-gray wheels – “drums” at 18 inches in the front and 19 in the rear. The interior of the spider is upholstered in Dinamica suede and decorated with a number plate
The sports car is equipped by default with the Akrapovic exhaust system, a race-adjusted suspension, bi-xenon headlights and a protective arc behind the carbon fiber seats . Under the hood is a 1.8 turbo engine (240 HP and 350 Nm), paired with a six-speed “robot” Alfa TCT. Up to 60 mph (97 km / h), the Roadster accelerates in 4.1 seconds. The maximum speed is 250 kilometers per hour.
In total, it is planned to release 33 spider 4C Spider 33 Stradale at a price of 79,995 dollars.
In January last year, a modern interpretation of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale was presented by the Dutch firm Ugur Sahin Design. The retro sports car was named Nivola – in honor of the famous racing driver Tazio Nuvolari.
