2015 Alfa Romeo 4C [w/video]

The Baby 458 Since it debuted this car as a concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Alfa Romeo has managed to keep the buzz alive for its 4C sports car – a huge accomplishment in its own right for this wildly adored, long suffering and eternally cash-strapped company. Being luckily stationed here in Italy as Autoblog's European Contributor, you can rightly assume that I've long been following the various and sundry ongoing dramas and products of this Italian brand.

    The dissonance between first look and first wheel turn was jarring.

The curvilinear sports car proved a ...
