Oh the sounds.
Last year, we showed you a video of the hardcore, race-spec Alfa Romeo 4C owned by Marco Gramenzi and built by Picchino Racing as it tackled the 2016 Trogeo Vallecamonica Italian hillclimb. This year, it’s back and even more impressive.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is now powered by a Zytek 3.0-liter V-8 engine – the same that’s used in various Formula 3000 cars – instead of the turbocharged inline-four from last year. This 450-horsepower, high-revving engine has the job of moving this 1,543-lb. race car and its redesigned body kit and aerodynamics, and does so exceptionally well.
At the 2017 Verzegnis – Sella Chianzutan hillclimb, the 4C was caught testing and showing off that potent V-8 engine.
Just close your eyes, turn up the volume, and enjoy that sound.
