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.

    On average, Fiat dealers have only been selling about 17 cars a month.

Franchisees spent millions building, stocking and manning sleek new 'studio' showrooms, only to have but a single model to ...

No reason was given for the delay. We can only hope the Free Press article is correct, since it cited a Fiat ...

    The key to performance in a car like the new Alfa Romeo 4C is its low curb weight. That's why Alfa made its chassis out of carbon fiber, the subframes and engine from aluminum and the bodywork out of composites, helping to keep the whole package down below the 2,000-pound mark. But that magic number will only hold true overseas. In the US, it'll be a good ...
