Alfa Romeo 6C Sports Coupe Could Crush The Jaguar F-Type

Rumor

Alfa Romeo is reportedly expanding its line-up.

Right now, Alfa Romeo’s line-up comprises of the Gulia sedan, the Stelvio SUV, and the 4C sports car. While it’s unlikely that we’ll see a new Alfa Romeo-badged halo supercar like the 8C Competizione emerge, the automaker has hinted that its line-up will continue to expand in the coming years. We already know that the company is currently working on a large SUV, and if a report by Alfa Romeo tuning specialist Pogea Racing GmbH is to believed, a new sports car called the 6C has been confirmed for production and launch in 2020.

Citing an “absolute trustworthy and legit source” from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the aftermarket tuner believes the Alfa Romeo 6C will be revealed either this year or in 2019 at a major auto show before launching in early 2020.No specific source has been identified, so we’ll have to take this rumor with a pinch of salt for now. However, the tuner cites its source as “a person that is very deep into the decisions of the management of Alfa Romeo and all he said in the past became reality.” Details about the alleged Alfa Romeo 6C are scarce for now, but it will likely be a rear-wheel drive coupe positioned above the 4C that’s larger and more expensive than its sibling to rival the likes of the Jaguar F-Type.

No powertrain details have been revealed, but a range-topping 6C Quadrifoglio packing a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 delivering around horsepower doesn’t seem too far-fetched. Remember that both the 4C and 8C indicates the number of cylinders in each model, hence why it seems likely that the 6C will adopt a six-cylinder engine. This won’t be the first time Alfa Romeo has used the 6C nameplate, either. It will, however, be the first time the 6C model name has been reprised in over 60 years, as a range of Alfa Romeo 6C race and road cars were produced between 1927 and 1954.
