It’s arriving a lot later than expected, a bit more expensive than expected and, worse, a bit heavier than expected, but the arrival of the otherwise highly desirable Alfa Romeo 4C to Australian shores is nigh. Deliveries will start next month with pricing starting at $89,000. Those extra keen to show off can aim to […]

Here, now in full high resolution detail, is the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Looks pretty nice, don’t you think! It’s powered by the same 1750cc turbocharged four cylinder from the hardtop, which means it has a peak power figure of 177kW (240hp). Torque has been beefed up a little, now up to 380Nm, up […]
Alfa Romeo is expected to unveil the production-ready 4C Spider in Detroit this week. We’re guessing the hero colour is going to be bright yellow after these leaked images appeared online. We got a pretty preview of the 4C Spider at last year’s Geneva show, when it was white. The production model, which will feature […]
A reader of Car magazine recently spotted this pair of Alfa Romeo 4Cs at an Italian wrecker’s yard. They’re likely to pre-production models and headed for the crusher; a sorry end to some beautiful bodywork. Although, you’d like to think they might be worthy of a museum exhibit perhaps. “On the outskirts of Turin, I […]
It’s brief, it’s painful, but you can’t stop watching it. Here, the Alfa Romeo 4C gets a lesson in understeer and farming at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Thankfully, both occupants in the car were able to walk away from this one.
The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a very cool car. This we can all agree. A short while ago Alfa released this video animation of the 4C Spider, starting with exploded parts which come together to form the completed car. This is also very cool. There’s no words or trite voiceover. In every way, this […]
Alfa Romeo is the gold sponsor for the 2014 Mille Miglia regularity race, which takes place later this week. Under current regulations cars that compete in the modern Mille Miglia must have competed in the original era of the event (1927–1957). Thankfully for our eyes this 1954 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva did just that. The […]
North American Alfisti can wake with a smile this morning with confirmation Alfa Romeo will be returning to the US car market. They’ll be relaunching the brand at the New York International Auto Show next month. And when you’ve got a car as sexy at the 4C why not! It will be the first time […]
The Alfa Romeo 4C is universally admired for its flowing curves and general good looks. That is until you get to the batshit crazy headlight cluster of the coupé. It’s the pimple on the nose of the 4C and, of course, there’s two of the bloody things! When Alfa released the 4C Spider the world […]
Like us you probably haven’t had a chance to duck over to Europe to check out the Geneva Motor Show. So here’s the first of a two part series bringing you a selection of the cars on show. Here we start with Alfa Romeo and go through to Lexus.
For his weekly visit to YouTube Chris Harris drops in with a sports coupé comparison that everyone will enjoy. It’s the swooping drama and promise of the Alfa Romeo 4C up against the model all sportscars in this class aim to beat, the Porsche Cayman S. So confident was Harris of the Porsche’s status he […]
When I was a young lad my mum had a white Alfa Spider. One of the first car memories I have is sitting on her lap holding the steering wheel as we drove along, turning on the indicators and just having a fun time. So for more reasons than this new 4C Spider “design preview” […]
Word on the street says Alfa Romeo will be bringing a 4C Spider to the Geneva Motor Show. It’s expected to have a removable roof panel, much like an old-skool 911 Targa, with carbon fibre rollover hoops behind the seats. One of the rare weak points of the mostly very sexy 4C is the headlight […]
We knew the Alfa Romeo 4C was in Australia for official Safety Car duties during last weekend’s World Superbike round at Phillip Island, but AUSmotive reader Chris got a nice surprise this morning when he saw the 4C on Bourke Street in Melbourne. While the 4C does look at home on a race track, it […]
The Alfa Romeo 4C doesn’t launch in Australia until later this year, but thanks to its role as the official Safety Car for the World Superbike championship you’ll be able to see one at Philip Island this weekend. We wonder how many Alfisti will be making a special trip.
