Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

Alfa Romeo's Triumphant Return

One of the most anxiously anticipated vehicles of the past few years is Alfa Romeo’s sultry new 4C sports car. Since the first concept version bowed in 2011 this product has seemingly whipped all of automotive journalism into a froth that’s stiffer than the peaks of a baked meringue. This much-hyped and oft-delayed product is set to launch this fall and we had a brief opportunity to sample it.

  • Jofran

    Remind me again why would I buy this over a C7 Vette

  • Rickers

    Meh. Some people just don’t want a Corvette. You could use that C7 argument on EVERY car being sold.

  • obvious

    Because its an Alfa

  • Sammy

    A C7 is agricultural in comparison !

  • Stevo

    Asking for a lot of answers there!!!
    1 precisely because it’s not a corvette
    2 because it’s Italian and not American …. Or German ….. Or Japanese
    3 because seeing 2 in one town would be unlikely
    4 because when you see the reviews telling you a Porsche is better you can clearly see the alfa breaking to stay behind it
    ……

    This car is a little too far out of the envelope of Alfa, which was never about crazy performance and much more about usable levels of power and handling. Yes, it is an automotive tour de force. But lose the turbo and the automatic transmission, add a bit of wheel base and a more compliant suspension, and you would have something closer to a real Alfa.

    having driven alfas for over 20 years, i am all for their return to the usa. i can live w/a turbo – if it doesn’t have lag. but, w/o a manual transition, it’s completely out of the question.

    i will stick w/my 220hp 2600lb 3.0 alfa gtv6 and my 475hp 3000lb de tomaso pantera.

    Alfa Romeo is the best car i have enjoyed it. Keep Calm Drive Alfa Romeo. I have Alfa Rome 147 2.0cc and controls a group of Alfa Romeo Owners in Zimbabwe.
