After yesterday 's victory on the Porsche 956 B in the 1:12 format, we will still have something at the label TrueScale Miniatures, which our fans know under the shorthand TSM: With the two models for the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, the small series manufacturer brings two well - made miniatures in Resine plastic, which is the model for the Detroit Motor Show 2015 presented as an example. The model in size 1:18 is presented by TSM in the color Rosso Competizione, its counterpart in 1:43 in the color Prototipo yellow. To the larger edition, the model builder publishes the statement that he has limited it to only 999 units. This is how the little red puts a similar exclusivity, as its model, because under the body offers real racing sports technology. Dallara is responsible for the chassis.
And this company has been an established concept for many decades as a manufacturer of entire racing cars. Dallara is contributing to the production of the 4C a monocoque of carbon fiber reinforced plastic weighing only 65 kilograms. The Alfa Romeo 4C builds on the same technology as a DTM racing car or a racing car from the sports car world championship. What really sets the model for our models a special status, because competitors such as the Audi TT or a Porsche Cayman have a normal, comparatively ordinary self-supporting body. The 4C's mid-engine concept, which provides the car with good handling, is also related to racing. The total of only 905 kilos of spiders emerges in handwork at Maserati: Is not that a horny nursery?

The name 4C stands for four cylinders, quattro cilindri, and thus docks the tradition of racing cars with the designations 6C and 8C. The model for our model is powered by a 1.8-liter in-line four-cylinder engine with 177 kW / 240 hp and accelerates in 4.5 seconds to 100 km / h; At 258 top speed is the end. But now back to the models: doors and bonnets remain closed due to the material, but the finish, in which TSM has executed the engravings for joints and beads, is unique especially in the 1:18: radiator grille, the lines of the doors, the total - Gives hardly a better made body in the model building. Thus, the Alfa Romeo 4C in the Bburago format with excellent quality and the characteristics of its model becomes the top model of your collection.
