4C will arrive in Canada, but specific allotment unknown. Permanent puddles of drool expected in dealer showrooms.

When Alfa Romeo returns to the North American market, the 4C Launch Edition will be the only vehicle currently on sale with the ability to pull drool out of your gaping jaw.

Shown in Geneva, 500 examples of the 4C Launch Edition will be available this year, though its final Canadian numbers are unknown.

When the 4C arrives, it will be powered by a turbocharged 1.75L 4-cylinder engine producing an amazing 240hp, mated to Alfa’s TCT twin dry clutch transmission.

Price? €60,000 in Europe. No word on US or Canadian pricing yet.
