Unfortunately, since you don’t live in the 1970s, you can’t buy a Lamborghini Countach, a Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 or a DeTomaso Pantera brand new. But you can buy an Alfa Romeo 4C, which is probably the closest thing to a modern version of those exotics. What do you need to know before you buy an Alfa Romeo 4C? Don’t…
There was a time when buying the drop-top version of a sports car was an implicit indication that you Just Didn’t Get It. You put fashion over function, style over stiffness. The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is one of the few (only?) exceptions. It’s just as rigid as the coupe, weighs only 22 pounds more, and drives exactly…
The Alfa Romeo 4C is an important car for both Fiat/Chrysler and us, the enthusiast consumers. It offers the purest driving experience available from a road car, Italian styling, properly advanced carbon construction, and a great soundtrack. But what's it like to drive on American roads? Mind bending.
There are only 1,500 examples of the Alfa Romeo 4C coming to the US. However and Alfa plans on expanding it's U.S offerings in the near future. Now the pressure is on the dealerships to provide a customer experience that rivals other luxury marquees.
Not that you haven't already noticed, but Alfa Romeo has delivered to mankind a sports car that virtually everybody has documented their insatiable lust for. It's beautiful, save for Alfa's interesting choice in production headlights. Too bad, because the eyes on this baby are the 4C's absolute best quality.
While Alfa's latest creation may seem to pin consumers between power and price, the Italians have hid something quite special under the 4C's bonnet. To date, carbon fiber monocoque chassis have been reserved for supercar manufactures because of the extreme cost associated with their creation.
Geneva's lineup of extravagant cars is exciting to most, but the Porsche-battling Alfa Romeo 4C is of particular interest to North American aficionados. That's because the Italians who have ensconced themselves in Detroit are actually going to be selling the super light coupé in the U.S. by the end of the year.
The production version of Alfa Romeo's compact mid-engined sports car will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. And after that, it's going to America! Alfa left the States in 1995, so I guess you really have to wait 18 years before you can officially enjoy porn.
Famed modern day philosopher Jeremy Clarkson once noted that "You can't be a true petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa Romeo." That's probably true, but it's a bit of a tall order for us Americans, since Alfa Romeos haven't been sold here since the mid 1990s (save for a few 8Cs here and there.)
Here it is folks, the compact little brother supercar foretold by the prophecies — the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept. It's like an Alfa Romeo 8C "Mini Me." The good news? It's so sexy that I want to make love to it. The even better news? Alfa Romeo's building it in 2012. Do want. Badly.
