PR and 'whispers' all seem to be clear that they can beat 250bhp and there is a hint of a 'balls out' setting on the DNA switch. I'd love the new engine to be the 300bhp Chrysler/Alloy block variant, of course. Alfa has been very clear that it will come in under 1000kg, and probably nearer 900kg. Price whispers have all held in the 45k Euro range.
Its not the €35k, 200bhp, 850kg feather weight they first talked about for 2012 delivery (and I was very clear about how let down I felt about that in these forums), but it is still an outstanding car.
Road going test cars are out there. It is going to happen.
