Wait. What about those commercials with the guy from 3 1/2 men driving in the house?Allan, you haven't been seeing commercials for Alfa unless:
1) you just woke up from a coma
2) haven't watched TV since 1995
3) You were in the market for an Alfa 8C (only 84 made for the US)
Alfa Romeo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I'm psyched about the 4C, but there probably won't be room for one in my life.
That's Charlie sheen driving a fiat lol also, I just caught up and that car looks like an Elise gone wrong. Sick specs, but ill keep my Exige any day.Wait. What about those commercials with the guy from 3 1/2 men driving in the house?
Whoops. My bad. I confused Fiat with Alpha.
StuThings you should know: Alfa trumpets a base curb weight of fewer than 2100 pounds, but U.S.-bound models will be about 2650, which factors in two side and two knee airbags, other mandated equipment, and a number of options that will likely be standard here, including air conditioning, power seats, and parking sensors. A “quiet” exhaust with a muffler will be offered. Whether the U.S. will even get the open pipes, and whether John Q. will be able to buy a 4C for anything even remotely close to the base price, are unknowns.
Also still up in the air is when, or even if, Alfa will sell U.S. customers something other than a toy.
Yup. I think I mentioned early on here that I generally figure 10% more weight and 20% more money on these show cars, prototypes, etc.They have a First Drive article in the December Car and Driver print version. Looks like the article was on the 'net a bit earlier in September here...

Overall pretty positive. Not sure I like the instrumentation that much. Here is an interesting quote regarding curb weight...
