I like reading this bit :

VERDICT

Worth the wait. Stunning looks and scintillating performance make it a genuine supercar, matched with an everyday useability and a tempting price

The reviews are all looking pretty good. One or two need to think again about their prejudices!

"Surely, it's everything an Alfa should be. Pure, involving, uncomplicated driving pleasure, wrapped in voluptuous bodywork that unashamedly recalls great Alfa coupés...". Well said, Mr Telegraph!

Don't be spoilsports. Post the SA review.

One "journalist" in Australia titled his review "At last, the Alfa that cannot rust".

That's ridiculous. I guess it doesn't "break down" either !

They edited some of the article vs what was published in the papers. Prices wrong, number of cars being built and coming to SA. Claimed radio and aircon is at additional costs, (when its non cost options). And earlier last week they wrote about a "essential version" that will show oil temp and boost pressure. Lol all 4C's show that on their TFT screens.

And then the usual BS about AR build quality. Claiming he can buy the hex screws from local hard ware stores etc. Not exactly a professional write up. Is this how you show your appreciation for being sent to Italy to attend the event by writing such a poorly researched article?
