That would be close to the estimated price I got in South African Rands.. It has not been officially confirmed yet but a few weeks back I was given a range and this price in pounds is close to what I was given in Rands

In South African Rands (after import taxes and CO2 emissions) the price I was given is close to R800 000 (which is close to 57K pounds and over 70 000 Euro's). But this obviously includes fees that you guys in Europe won't pay..

Its so obvious that this car is going to be overpriced. Its gonna be a good second hand buy thought after 3 to 4 years. Kind of like a Lotus Evora. 3 year old low mileage Evora's that were over 62k can be picked up for 29k now. I think the problem is that whenever you price a sports car like the 4c over 35k your going head to head with the German prestige brands. The normal car buyer with that kind of money to spend will always go for the 'safe' German car.

It will probably be expensive in the UK because of the taxes there. This car should be compared to a Porsche Boxster/Cayman S. How much do those cost in the UK? We are talking about an light weight sports car with a carbon fibre tub.

Lotus has nothing close to 900kg / 250+ bhp let alone the torque of the Alfa engine, at under 38,000 base price with no options, and even ABS is a costed option

Mid November 2012 I was given an estimated range of R650K to R750K (46K pounds to 54K pounds). But due to our exchange rate weakening considerably recently on 10 Dec 2012 I was given a revised figure of around R800 000 (or around R57K pounds).

I'm very curious for the official final price.. In both the UK and SA.

Our prices can obviously not just be converted to pounds to get to UK prices. So I am interested to see what you guys finally pay.. Our biggest cost addition is the fact that heavy import taxes are added to the car's price which inflates SA prices a little. So it might not end up as expensive in UK as its gonna be in SA.

Final details expected very soon...

Even at 45k,you're competing with some serious big players. I has to be a 10/10ths car!

Couldn't agree more.. They stepping into serious Porche territory with this 'unofficial' price.. This car has to be fantastic if they want to draw people away from Porsche to the 4C.

At the same time , as the image car for Alfa , it has to be relatively unattainable . Not to the extreme of the 8C .

I'm not sure what people here were expecting. This shouldn't be compared to a 134hp Lotus Elise. The planned Mazda/Alfa spider will be the cheaper cabriolet. Priced between a MX5 and a Boxster probably.

The 4C will be lighter than a Boxster and should have better performance. The Boxster S has a weight to power ratio of more than 4kg per hp. Alfa has said the 4C will be less than 4kg per hp. If that turns out to be true the 4C will be in a different league than the Boxster performance wise. So it's not surprising if it will cost more.

the figures were quoted by a dealer from the west midlands who had just returned from an alfa romeo conference (uk)...

A-team, btw I'm buying a 4C regardless of the price...

I'm just worried at these prices people will look at the 4C and say, no ill rather buy me a Porsche. As an Alfisti ill buy the 4C regardless of what kind of Porsche I can buy instead..

I expected Porsche prices from day one as I believed this is the market they are pitching the 4C it... More upmarket/premium road AR is taking. And performance is said to rival and beat Cayman R so its not surprising it will cost the same.

If its anything like the 8C you'll have to wait a while due to its function as aspirational/ collectible Alfa . I imagine dealers will be encouraged to have one as will people who can actually afford one.
Meanwhile , you can always experience the finest dining by hanging around the bins at your favourite restaurant ! Lol

The boy's right.

The price creep may be inevitable but we needed ("wanted"?) it so much to be in the ball park range AR originally suggested so more of us had a chance of owning one.

Brera, Saab 9-3

The Q4 Brera Italia Independent was 35k list price new, did people really believe a 4C would be anywhere close to that? 50k price doesn't really surprise me. Would be nice if they do a lower spec one which is more affordable but I think the new spider is my target not the 4C!
