Just one mistake.. Claiming the LE's were all white.

Other than that a great review.

Extremely positive review - love it! Now we need to see what EVO has to say about the 4C.

You expect Autocar not to make any mistakes? LOL

He says a lot of things that I do not agree with and also sounds very much mis-informed but the last statement put a BIG smile on my face.

Nice video, although my granny would have driven in a more sporty way than this guy..
Thus the final statement has to be put in perspective with his driving style I guess..

Although positive what a boring video to watch/listen to. It shows what a stuffy old school magazine Autocar is (same for Whatcar? and Autoexpress). The Chris Harris Driven video is a much better example of good modern journalism.

Autocar also confirming that there will be a higher performance version Stradale/Green Cloverleaf and that a Spyder version would be easy to make although they have no plans at the moment.
Performance of the Cloverleaf to be increased by increasing boost on the existing engine and maintaining low weight - and not by considering V6 engine implants which takes the 4c away from its original concept.
