Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
On Thursday, November 20th, THE COLLECTION, Miami’s foremost luxury automotive dealership, together with Ocean Drive magazine, celebrated the arrival of the Alfa Romeo brand at THE COLLECTION and revealed the all-new, limited-production 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C.
“We are beyond excited to have celebrated the arrival of Alfa Romeo to THE COLLECTION and the highly-coveted 4C. The sweet price point and race-inspired performance will add a unique diversity to our showrooms,” said Ken Gorin, President and CEO of THE COLLECTION. Gorin added, “The 4C is sporty and eye-catching – the perfect vehicle for Miami drivers!”
Guests at the Dine + Drive event enjoyed “dinner by the bite” from South Florida’s hottest restaurants as featured in Ocean Drive’s November 2014 issue including: Basil Park, Macchialina, Oak Tavern, Touché Restaurant and Rooftop Lounge and Mignonette. Revelers enjoyed delectable desserts by HipPOPs Handcrafted Gelato Bars, complimentary cocktails by Premier Beverages, wine by E. & J. Gallo Winery and brewed beverages by Keurig. In addition, guests received a unique peek at Chopard’s Alfa Romeo timepieces, plus their racing inspired collection. Proceeds from the event benefitted Feeding South Florida and additional donation opportunities were available on-site as guests were able to sign a vehicle in support of the charity by Artist Daniel Fila of Krave Art.
Boasting Italian style, the Alfa Romeo 4C demonstrates original values of performance and engineering excellence. Starting at $68,400 and a limited production of only 500 in the U.S., the launch edition of the 4C is a two-seater sports car with a focus on aerodynamic efficiency and lightness. The solid foundation is due to the handcrafted carbon-fiber monocoque chassis weighing a mere 143 lbs. Sporting a modest 1.7-litre four-cylinder engine, the 4C boasts 237 horsepower and can travel from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds on its way to a 160-mph top speed. The 4C is built using the latest technology blending the legendary trademark of style and performance.
