Seems they like it. Perhaps they could have given it another half star but hey, Alfa doesn't buy loads of ads on their mag

So funny...seems like everyone of us in Europe has more or less the same date including Italy which is obviously not possible.
I am bored of waiting!

A few motoring journo's in SA were told there might be a small chance that 7 of the 13 LE's destined for our country might arrive here before year end (even tho our contracts state February 2014 as the due date).

any news about expected delivery date in Continental Europe?
Read on some Italian press that first deliveries will take place in October.. what month does your contact state? And, is it likely that they will first build and deliver all LHD LEs and then RHD ones?

Not one positive comment there. Must have got out of bed on the wrong side - for the past 10 years

Translation :

Test Alfa Romeo 4C: " dynamic , but disappointing ! "

Discover the first impressions of Julien Diez, journalist writing Sport Auto, the controls of the new sporty little Alfa Romeo : 4C .


Presented with great fanfare in Balocco , the development center of the Fiat group , the Alfa Romeo 4C is heralded as the " supercar available ." Just that! Journalist - tester in drafting Sport Auto, Julien Diez, gives us his first impressions.

"Alfa Romeo has pulled it off in terms of design (except the horrible headlights supposedly lighter .) The little coupe has the effect of a UFO in the street with its compact size , wide hips and low ground clearance . beyond the plastic 4C brand dynamism ... the combination of light weight ( 895kg dry) and the mid-engine architecture wonders. settings suspensions are not extreme .


Very typical Lotus ...

The feeling of lightness is less compared to a Lotus Elise . Comfort joined the latter and is skimpy whether soundproofing, a foundation or cabin overheated if we do not take the air conditioning option (free) . The versatility and everyday are not his strong ... The finish is disappointing with a lot of basic plastics, a sloppy assembly. A € 51,500 , we expected a more refined way Lotus cockpit at random and the most consistent presence of carbon, although the central bathtub fiber is apparent here .

mechanical disappointing

On the mechanical level, between a very disappointing 4C Diesel character - Linear high torque and low growth and beyond 4000 r / min - and banal noise admission. The sound is very elaborate to the exhaust. It is especially audible from the outside and at low speeds . It is an unconventional rumble with racing exhaust ( free ) Optional ... The 4-cylinder turbocharged 240 horsepower is mated to a dual clutch , slow compared to the competition and regularly causing smoothly.

chassis pleasure

In short, it allows cut Alfa Romeo finally reconnect with the sport - true - and delights in its chassis . But the engine temperament is not worthy of the shield , as the management box or finishing. The price is justified because of the materials used : carbon hull, aluminum subframe ... As explained Alfa Romeo , he still has seven years to live. So hopefully by then some crispy versions or as a Spider version of GTA . "

The full test of the Alfa Romeo 4C will discover the number 622 Sport Auto ( November 2013 ) .
