First reviews of 4C are in.

THAT nasty exhaust note! How can this be legal in the EU?

It actually sounds terrible.

Styling wise I see a lot of cues from the Stratos.

I guess this is as close as you can get to a modern day Lancia Stratos as you can get, especially when that F430 based Stratos got canceled.

Overall- I like it, but I hear only 3,500 will be built, which is far too few in my opinion. But that leaves plenty of room for special edition versions!

Naww, 3,500 is about right, for the price. Then we can have the new Spider, which should be at most half the price and a whole barrel of fun.

...per year! Not in total.

The figure is so often misquoted that it is now accepted as universal truth. Crap journalism.

Well, I was wrong.

Again.

The 62 grand figure was for the Launch edition. The standard car will be 54 grand.

Ah, that's much more like it!

Here's another review from Chris Harris.

This just popped into my head and I may be wrong, but is the last time Alfa Romeo made something mid engined like this was it the 33 Stradale?

Well, if you can call the 33 Stradale a production car, then probably yes.

There was also the Sprint 6C prototype from the 80's.

A small update on how things are going.

Overwhelming amount of orders, heavy delays at production, very few cars actually delivered to customers.

Apparently 4C Spider will be revealed in Geneva next year.

Well, with Lancia dead and the Fisler deal sealed by Mr. Marchionne Alfa Romeo will probably see the greatest expansion since the 60's - unless they **** up, which being Fiat it could very well be the case.

Nevertheless, the prospect looks the brightest it has looked for Alfa Romeo for the last 45 years.

Engineer here, that was highly appreciated. Where did you find this awesome image? Doesn't seem like the sort of thing that goes in your average press kit.
