Little Alfa Romeo 4C Sets A Seriously Impressive Nurburgring Time

Illustration for article titled Little Alfa Romeo 4C Sets A Seriously Impressive Nurburgring Time

The Porsche 918 Spyder went around the 'Ring in 6:57. Compared to that, the Alfa Romeo 4C's 8:04 lap is about a week long. But that isn't really the case.

Porsche's 918 is an ultramegasuperOMGcar with a price tag of nearly $1 million. It has to be that fast, because anything slower is a disappointment. The Alfa 4C is a $54,000 sports car. It competes with the more powerful and expensive Porsche Cayman S, which set a lap time of 7:55.

8:04 puts it in the same realm as the E92 BMW M3 and Jaguar XKR-S. That's seriously impressive for a little lightweight car with a little 1750 cc engine taking on the big boys.

Supermodel good looks and speed. Way to go Alfa, you didn't build Anna Kournikova.

Cool, now send the US spec model around. I want to see what impact that extra 550 lbs has on it.
