Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

5. Pricing and Availability

The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is (finally) scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealers in the third quarter of the year with a base price of $55,195 including destination.

It’s designed to be an accessible Italian exotic, a rip-snortin’ performance machine that average people can actually afford. At its price point this car really doesn’t have any direct competitors, though it will probably be cross shopped with autos like Porsche Cayman and Lotus Evora.

Maximum annual production is limited to about 3,000. This is because of the 4C’s hand-made carbon-fiber tub, which is complicated and takes time to make. North America’s allotment of that figure is only expected to be around 1,000, so act fast when they go on sale later this year, you won’t be disappointed.

    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 !

  • Aajaxx

    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.

  • 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

    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.
