2016 Alfa Romeo 6C Features & Specs — Amazing Performance Car
The top-notch performance cars will have to make room for another star in their galaxy. The 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C, with a lot of racing genes and passionate to show its noble racing heritage, will be released with more than impressive specs. Looking back at the automotive history, we’ll see the predecessor of this vehicle. Between 1925 and 1954, the 6C was one of the most prominent cars which had not only great performance, but also a beautiful style. Based on the Maserati Alfieri concept, which is a well-known car to all the true fans of speeding with style, the 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C will revive the legend of the 6C. Its breathtaking exterior and a powerful engine, borrowed from the Maserati Ghibli, will probably make this car one of the most desirable within its market niche. It will actually share a lot with various Maserati models. Having in mind that Maserati belongs to the higher automotive stratum, the 2016 6C could be an announcement of different future for the Alfa Romeo brand.
2016 Alfa Romeo 6C Exterior Design
Having already well-established cars for competitors, such as the Jaguar F-Type or the Porsche 911 Turbo, the 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C will have a really tough task once it hits the market. Of course, it will have a lot of help from its Maserati cousins. Since it will be a flagship vehicle, this could mean that it will be available as a coupe and as a sedan. The basic architecture, already used for the Maserati Alfieri, will be adjusted for the 6C. Reportedly, it will be a little bit shorter. As well as the platform, the 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C will have a lot of design elements borrowed from the Alfieri concept. With muscular, powerful design language, this car will, perhaps, be the most aggressive Alfa Romeo vehicle. However, this doesn’t mean that it won’t be suitable for everyday use. Gentle touch of the contemporary design will make the body of the all-new flagship vehicle smooth and sleek, pronouncing elegance, luxury and performance, conjoined in a unique style.
Powertrain Borrowed From Maserati Ghibli
We already mentioned that the 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C will have a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine, borrowed from the Maserati Ghibli. This particular mill delivers around 520 horsepower. That’s why the 2016 6C is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds. As for the drive, this car is expected to come on the market with standard rear-wheel drive, like every other full-blooded racer, but all-wheel drive will also be available as an option.
2016 Alfa Romeo 6C Release Date & Estimated Price
At this point, it’s very hard to say when exactly the all-new Alfa Romeo 6C will be released. However, its release date is expected during 2015. Having in mind how powerful this car will be and all the features that it brings, the base price of the 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C probably won’t be less than $100,000.
