Nice one, thanks!

Happy with your colour choices guys? The Rosso Red looks great, but that wee peak in the vid of the Carrara White it also looks ace!

After seeing the white one in Geneva, I knew I couldn't pass on it even though matte paint requires more work for it to look good. In general, I dislike white cars but this case is an exception. So it is safe to say that I'm happy with my choice

The 4C sounds fantastic. Looking forward to driving though a long tunnel with the windows down!

911

I can't believe a 4 banger sounds so good! There are a lot of synthesized sounds now (911) and it's great to see a natural sound so good.

After seeing your comment I watched it again... The quality of the video is all of sudden 100x times better.. Sure they improved the quality of the vid.. And when i saw it the 1st time it had 8views. Well over 100 now.. And this is in a matter of minutes

It looks and sounds gorgeous!

OMG!

In terms of sound (assuming it will stay the same in actual production cars and that the sound is not modified neither fake) this is probably among the top-3 best sounding engines I've ever heard in a road-legal 4cyl... or could even be the best..

Probably it was uploaded new, because when I watched it the quality was great. And the sound... Wow, I can't stop watching the video

I don't think the production car is gonna sound as saucy as this... The LE does have the racing exhaust on that the production car won't have (unless it's an optional extra ala Abarth Monza exhaust)... But I can't wait to drive it and hear it crackle and pop as you fly along!!

but the one in the video seems to be a LE.

Thus, if this is the production version of the LE (and not some kind of pre-series mule), it should sound like this, shouldn't it?

The Launch Edition versions will sound like that for sure, because of the racing exhaust system that is offered. I think what Perreby meant was the standard edition of the 4C which remains unclear if it will get the racing exhaust system as an option or not.

Yes, I agree with both of you then.

By the way one must also consider that this footage was apparently shot inside some photo studio.. outdoor the sound reverberation would be likely lower (hopefully not very much!).

4C LE

Wonder if the Alfa is using the "bang bang" technique for the turbo 'scavenging' hence the popping. This is what I'm talking about: Turbo Anti-lag systems - A technical description
