Alfa Romeo 4c is designed around the driver. The new Alfa D.N.A. selector has three settings (Dynamic, Natural and All Weather) for adapting the car to the road conditions and the current driving style. What is more, Race mode is designed to further enhance the driving experience on the racing track. Holding the selector pressed in Dynamic position will cut out the stability control system and the ABS handing full control of the car over to the driver. Furthermore, the full digital instrument panel with TFT display changes configuration to provide the information most pertinent to the specific Alfa D.N.A. setting.
This is a very interesting feature of the Alfa 4C... in RACE mode even the ABS is fully disabled. This comes in strong contrast to the Cayman in which you can't switch off completely the electronic 'nannies' let alone the ABS.
