The Alfa Romeo 4C hasn't even gone on sale and yet Alfa is reportedly already considered building a version with more power than the 240-hp the standard 4C puts out.

According to Alfa Romeo CEO Harald Webster, the 4C's carbon fiber chassis is a prime candidate for added power, Automotive News reports. "The stiffness is very high. The first adjustment would be the brakes," Webster told the outlet. The Alfa 4C's 1.7-liter turbocharged I-4 currently makes 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and can apparently make much more power. "We are only at 134 horsepower per liter, so there is space [for more power]," says Webster.

We Hear : Alfa Romeo 4 C in Consideration for Power Boost . Motortrend - Christian Seabaugh writerMay 6, 2014. The Alfa Romeo 4 C hasn't even gone on sale and yet Alfa is reportedly already considered building a version with more power than the 240-hp the standard 4 C puts out.

The Alfa Romeo 4 C is a prime candidate for a power boost , says the automaker's chief executive officer. The Alfa 4 C 's 1.7-liter turbocharged I-4 currently makes 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and can apparently make much more power .

With news that the Alfa Romeo 4C could handle more power, Webster also shed some light on changes the automaker made to the U.S.-spec 4C.The biggest changes in transition from Europe to America are suspension related; Alfa swapped out the front and rear frames of the North American 4C for more robust units, and reinforced and retuned the suspension. Other changes include the more normal-looking headlights first seen on the Alfa 4C Spider concept, and more standard equipment. "The base car in the U.S. has richer equipment," Webster told Auto News, "Europeans are more willing to have a naked driving machine."

Europeans do love their nudity. The non-nude Alfa Romeo 4C is expected to finally hit the Fiat and standalone Alfa Romeo dealers in the U.S. this summer.
