Alfa Romeo 4c - How it's made & road test!

From today's Telegraph


Video: How the Alfa Romeo 4C is made - Telegraph


Because I'm so kind as to post this for you I think anyone who watches the video should give me a tenner. Just send the cheques to Alfa Romeo & mark them 'alfaspecial's 4c fund'

It looks great until you see a grown up man beside it. What people would like to drive cars like this? Or Elises?
The look like mob wives cars.

The final inspection of the car... The way in which the guy is checking all is well, it is like he is caressing a fine woman's body.....

Or am I the only one that may need some sort of counselling

non Alfa Romeo

Very interesting to see the detailed process in constructing this car.

It's such a pity they then go and ruin the whole thing by sticking the most hideous and cheap looking headlights on it!

IMHO, this is far from being the most beautiful Alfa Romeo. In fact, those lights make it look like a high end kit car! Sorry, but it just don't do it for me.

Still think this is a wasted opportunity by Alfa.

Luckily for Alfa Romeo, your opinion seems to be the minority voice.
Even those headlights are growing on me

Thanks for posting the video.
It's great to see my favourite brand building a lightweight car. It seems with every new model of car these days they get heavier and heavier. Great to see Alfa taking the lightweight approach.

The 4c looks like a lot of fun if I had this sort of money nothing else would get a look in.

Not quite sure about the lights but I will give them a chance maybe I will grow to like them.
