Well Happy Alfa Romeo 4C some new information I found...

I don't know if any of you seen this, but I've just read some new things regarding the serial production 4C, and there is some spy photos. It is supposedly coming out in mid 2013, here is the link if you want to check it out

Not entirely new info, those photos have already been posted. But good link nonetheless

Saluti, Giordano.

Actually, that's just a desaturated picture of the Concept, taken at the Geneva auto show. You can see part of the rotating aluminium platform on the right, complete with glass surround. And the skirt of the model standing beside the car.

Also, the third brake light on the production version is much larger than that

Edit: here's the original, uncropped and unedited picture, for your reference.

Now seems increasingly likely that this will be launched early March 2013, at Geneva, and built to order on an "uncapped list". 300bhp, RWD, 1000kg wet. UK RHD version not too long after that. Not that long to wait.

Did I mention my birthday is in March?

This is far too soon for me

Late 2015, early 2016 is the time for me; I won't be able to afford it before then.

It'll still be on sale then, it'll be a better car and others will have discovered all its issues the hard way for you.

Yeah; the worry is that even then, it'll be hard. I'm coming out of a Master's in September and so I need time to get a job and set enough money apart

Even 2016 is going to be hard work.

Trust me no one has more info on this car than I do...

Spoke to my 'connections' yesterday again. I already have a limited edition car on pre-booking and got a price estimate for the car in SA currency.

I will also be in possesion of full specs of the limited edition car by end of January 2013... Well before the official launch in Geneva.

We spent Wednesday with Alfa UK at Goodwood. Got the full run down on the 4c & the updates that are coming during 2013.

The V6 in the 4C we won't see.. That was some website's supposed source that said that.. Its contradicting the name of the car..

They have loads of things planned for the face lifts for MiTo and Giulietta.
I even had the chance to comment on what I would like to see on the face lifts

As for the 4C (there is a BIG possibility that there will be a button or switch to either deactivate the DNA system (or at least to switch off traction control))
