Chris Harris on Drive in the Alfa Romeo 4C

If you're like us, Alfa Romeo's long-awaited and oft-promised return to the United States will be a joyous event, not least because it'll be heralded by the car you see above - the 4C. Drive's Chris Harris was at the launch in Italy, putting the punchy, lightweight Alfa Romeo through its paces, and doing a bit of sliding around on the Balocco proving grounds.

Generally, Harris is a fan of the Alfa, explaining that it sits rather neatly between the Porsche Cayman and Lotus Elise in most areas. He did have a few small criticisms, but they seemed mostly outweighed by the positives. Take a look below for the full video from Drive.
