Alfa 4C 2021: exclusive 33 Stradale Tributo headed for Australia with gold wheels

John Law

Alfa is sending off its 4C sports car with a fetching tribute that references the marque’s racing history.

The 2021 Alfa Romeo 4C 33 Stradale Tributo is the final swan song for Alfa’s mid-engined sports car and there are only 15 examples coming to Australia this year.

Alfa Romeo has secured 10 coupe and 5 Spider versions of the 4C 33 Stradale for Australia. The cars are available to order now from $123,000 plus on-road costs. Customer cars are expected to arrive in August.

The 4C was already attractive, this limited edition only amplifies its presence.

In 2021, the 4C entered its sixth year on sale in Australia providing an Italian alternative to lightweight sports cars such as the Alpine A110 and Lotus Elise

What’s different about the 33 Stradale Tributo? 

The special edition commands a $34,000 premium over the regular 4C coupe. While rarity is a factor in that price, Alfa Romeo hasn’t just slapped on a plaque and called it a day.

From the outset it’s obvious you’re looking at the special edition. Alfa offers only one colour combination with the deep ‘Ville d’Este’ red hue set off by a quartet of gold alloy wheels.

Inside the 33 Stradale Tributo you get two-tone leather upholstery.

There are also carbon fibre mirror covers with the Italian flag and a bare carbon fibre roof for the coupe. Finishing the menacing look is extra black detailing in the front air-dam.

Inside, Alfa has treated the limited edition to tan sports seats and extended leather package while leaving the red carbon fibre tub exposed. Naturally, there is a numbered plaque to confirm that your 4C is, indeed, on of the 15 33 Stradale Tributos.

Aside from visual tweaks, Alfa has fitted an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system to both save weight and increase the 4C’s aural drama.

The remainder of the 4C is unchanged. The Alfa retains its mid-mounted 1.7L turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 177kW of power and 350Nm of torque

While the engine’s outputs aren’t huge, a six-speed dual-clutch automatic and feathery 1,035kg kerb weight mean the 4C 33 Stradale Tributo is able to reach 100km/h in 4.5 seconds. 

The Alfa Romeo 4C 33 Stradale Tributo is available to order now with deliveries expected to commence in August.
