Worth seeing just for the Lambo

Not bad at all

One thing, though, Jeremy didn't seem very taken with the 4c..WTF!

It's the same plot, script, etc ... but compelling viewing..... I liked it.

Yea, that was that all about?? Thought that a bit strange? Maybe Alfa Romeo didn't want to give the BBC a prototype 4C after the review the 8C got... ie "It should be a poster, not a car"....

I'm very intrigued by the 4c, I mean the styling is just superb, but that engine sounds like it'll be right tool...

Probably because Clarkson probably knows deep down like me that they will never make the 4c which I kinda think meself.

I think they will personally, they've already confirmed it. There is a fella who contributes to the 4c lounge that has a lot of detail on it as he worked on the development of the engine...

Edit: and a 300bhp version possibly as well

Yeah I don't think there's any doubt it'll be made, just exactly when we'll see it is the question

The sad thing is the engineers will make a 300bhp unit ok, but the Euro emissions crowd will cause it to be cur back to 240-ish.. nice and benign thus rendering it a flop....

I hear that. Alfas have a lot of what we like to call "unrealised potential"
