Upcoming 2-door coupe sports car 6C isn’t the first Alfa Romeo with this nameplate. Moniker has been used in olden times, between 1927 and 1954, and this is the perfect time to reintroduce it. 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C will be a part of Italian maker’s strategy and brand’s revival in U.S. market. Furthermore, coupe will be twinned with Maserati’s own Alfieri roadster which is certainly promising.
Alfa Romeo 6C Engine
It seems that power will come from 3.0L twin turbocharged V-6 engine, and there will be plenty of it. Early signs suggest a power output of 410 horsepower, but some models might offer even more than that.
Alfa aims to offer only rear and all-wheel drive, and we certainly wouldn’t expect anything other than that from a sports car. We still don’t have anything on its transmission, but we wouldn’t expect nothing less than 6-speed manual and optional, more advanced dual-clutch automatic.
There are some leaks which suggest that 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C is going to look beyond gorgeous. Maserati cues usually do that to a car. However, 6C will get special Alfa’s frontal fascia with different grille.
Triangular beak will adorn the front, while flared fenders are supposed to house thin, angular headlamps. Expect a number of air inlets as well. both upon the hood and behind the fenders, and expect especially protruded rear wheel arches. Rear end will also house dual exhaust pipes and contemporary tail-lights on an upright-executed overhang.
Interior of Alfa Romeo 6c
We still don’t have anything firm about 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C’s interior. Of course, it will be far less prolific than Maserati’s own Alfieri, but it still should get some luxury features of its own. Most models, if not all will offer some kind of leather upholstery, including suede and Alcantara inserts. In similar manner, 6C will most likely offer aluminum, or even carbon fiber accents.
Even though dashboard will most likely remain on the small side, imagining high-end car without a touch screen infotainment system is really hard. Together with modern infotainment cluster, Alfa Romeo will offer all standard connectivity options and premium sound system to go with them. Other than that, it’s still too early to tell how comfortable and spacious will 6C be, and how much room (if any) will rear passengers get.
Don’t expect 2016 Alfa Romeo 6C to perform admirably in fuel efficiency department as well. While this still isn’t a hypercar, twin-turbo engine takes its toll nevertheless. However, we don’t think that future 6C owners will mind that too much. 3
2016 Alfa Romeo 6C Price
They, however, might not sympathise with car’s hefty price tag which could end up anywhere between $50,000 and $150,000. These are all wild guesses at this point, but we still don’t know which strategy will Italian maker adopt for the car.
2016 Alfa Romeo 6C is supposed to become one of, if not the most prolific car in manufacturers’ lineup. Sporty coupe executes a dashing design, full of Italian signature lines and just astonishes with its look. Furthermore, it is supposed to perform admirably as well, but it might receive way too large price tag.
