The review sounds like more than "four" when reading it though... Really positive in what matters.

Typical for Car mag then.

Just wait for the Autocar road test. Everything will be good and the sum of the star will work out to an average of 5 yet it will get a 3.

Great review.

I haven't been this excited about an Alfa in a very, very long time.

Looking forward to seeing one in the metal when it arrives and better still, taking it for a test drive.

Don't think there will be many demonstrators

Take your point about the lack of demonstrators.

Guess buying the car, sight unseen and without driving it, are a given considering the limited numbers globally.

Only the tub is carbon. The rest is scaffolding, metal & composite

Alfa GT

I have just got the printed group test version of the latest 'Car'

Basically said the Lotus was the most intense, Alfa sits in the middle and then Porsche.

Apparently the Alfa feels noticeably stiffer than the Elise but Elise steering is more responsive. The Porsche feels 'soft' compared to the other two cars but a great GT car.

Again, they loved the 4C.
