Geneva 2014: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

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” […]

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider coming to Geneva?

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 […]

Alfa Romeo 4C drops into Melbourne for coffee

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.

Alfa Romeo 4C in town for SBK

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.

No it hasn’t broken the 7-minute barrier; it hasn’t even broken the 8-minute barrier. The 4C set a lap time of 8 minutes 4 seconds and according to Alfa, that’s the fastest time […]

Alfa Romeo 4C goes to Nürburgring marketing school

The Alfa Romeo 4C recently had its turn to set a lap time on the Nürburgring. The result was a not too shabby 8 minutes 4 seconds. Although, keep in mind, that’s only four seconds faster than a Renault Megane RS 265 Trophy. Pirelli didn’t want to miss its chance to join in the fun, […]

Everybody loves the Alfa Romeo 4C. And all of us have probably, at some stage, thought about buying one. So what would you think if us Australians could buy a 4C for $75,000? Hmm, an A45 AMG hot hatch or a rear-wheel drive sportscar? The 4C has the potential to mix it with the exalted […]

Chris Harris plays with the Alfa Romeo 4C

As you know the Alfa Romeo 4C was launched last week. Alfa did this by inviting a bunch of motoring hacks to Italy and threw them a set of keys. Initial thoughts via Top Gear were less flattering than perhaps we wanted. So what did Chris Harris think? Well, we’ll let you watch the video […]
