You guys didnt understand my post at al did you? Its just a prediction of what will happen when the accountants get involved. It's pure fiction! Because thats what ussually happens with alfa. They announce a GTA version but in the end its always a punto/bravo in a fancy bodykit with a diesel engine.....

Even this quotes the power figures very low, how disappointing, a very expensive car with not a lot of performance= alfa being sold to volswagen soon then

Im gutted if its true cuz for 50 grand its crap value when a mito cloverleaf is just as fast


ye but isnt a abrath punto better than mito, maybe even fiat 500? i no alfa/ fiat are the same, but isnt alfa supposed to be the "performace car" there are load of small cars that are better in performance... i wouldnt mind if they had made the GTA mito, but you would just buy a mini jcw.

seems there just making these new cars for possers, and not serious car lovers like they used to sad.gif

i just re read it :

Motive power will come from Alfa's 1.75-litre 1750TBi turbocharged petrol engine that will produce 'in excess of 200bhp'. That will be enough, says Alfa, to push the 4C from 0-62mph in less than 5.0secs.

is this a brand new engine ?

or made up BS

that engine would be sweet in the 145 tongue.gif

but i think for 50k and be branded "supercar" is bo****ks, 200hp should be in a hothatch, and 350 -500 in a supercar, i dont care if it weights as much as a fag packet, http://www.carmds.com/ nothing is as low as 200bhp lol

and it hardly looks like a stripped out light weight car, so dunno how on earth 200bhp, makes 0-62 in under 5 sec, so 0-60 in 4 seconds lol, sounds like the words for a italian thats had a few to many peroni's , this pics taken shorty after the press conferance http://byejustin.files.wordpress.com/2008/...unk_pooper4.jpg

I got it but I'm just pee'd off withe the predicted performance lol- bring back a mental v6 in a stupidly light hatchback! Like shamon says, its for posers not real driving enthusiasts now.

I'd never dispute the look though, its sooo pretty

it's the engine that's in the JOOOOOOOLietta and the 159

Prob going to be tinkered with.

it's deffo not 'supercar' territory, but neither is a Gayman or Elise or that VILE Z4, which is what it's aiming itself at.

must admit prefer the artistic impression airmike linked to, as front slightly reminds me of the alfa TZ2, which is probs my favourite alfa coolio.gif

It looks more aimed at a mini supercar, scaled down version of the 8C, rough calculation based on 200bhp at flywheel & weight of 850kg would be following acceleration, provided by letstorquebhp.com:

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 200
Weight without Driver (KG) : 850
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 239.07
0 - 60 (Secs) : 4.78
0 - 100 (Secs) : 12.28

Personally love the idea, sticking to previous alfa history with low weight - thinking GTA (minus 156 & 147 of course).

The 1750tbi engine is fitted to the 159 & Guiletta I believe.

problem is at the end of the day people dont drive anymore, they commute to work. Thats it! thats why so many boring german cars are bought cos they have sad little lives.


If alfa want to do well, they have to produce a car that is 2nd to none. They need to get back on track! There used to be loads of Lotus Elises everywhere, Mx5s, BMW z4 etc etc if thats where there aiming with this car, it needs to be fast, striking and not get taken over by accountants.

Accountants ruin everything, they ruined tesco so I wont be surprised if they ruin Fiat.

how can they have 'ruined' Tesco?

It's one of the most profitable businesses in the world!

(I'm not applauding them, I HATE tescos and their 'might' destroying towns, and their crap 'fresh' food that's utterly tasteless. But from a business perspective it's incredible what they have achieved!)

The problem is Sergio Marchionne, and "he's peope".

The are utterly boring.
When you make "Germanized accountants" leaders, things loose their soul and value.

Alfa should be allowed to follow true Alfa values, beeing light weight, true Alfa alu-engines, driving pleasure (dynamic driving), and some models with Transaxel-design.

AND NO Make-up mirror in the drivers side !!!

To day, the cars have become "fat" and the engines are slightly trimmed, heavy cast iron "Of the shelf" creations...

Design is a matter of taste, and to days Alfa's though beautifull, are a bit feminin in their design. But the front designs of the 159 (Brera style) is the best ever !!!

Sergio Marchionne is a "FIAT Only" monster !!!

its not true nath, think 0-60 in under 5 seconds, look at the KTM X-Bow for similar performance, it's the same chassis.


It's not based on the Xbow chassis, it's a chassis made by dallara who also make the Xbow chassis, i think this is were that confusion comes from.

In this months auto italia mag it explains, in the Xbow it has no doors, you climb over to get it, in the 4C it has doors so its a new chassis.

I'm getting to like it now though, light weight, lotus type car, they want into the lotus market.
