Alfa's 4C is a super-light two-seat, mid-engine sports car for people who live more for the track than their commute.
In concept it resembles the departed Lotus Elise, but with slightly more creature comforts.
It weighs only about 2,500 pounds.
The 4C is powered by a 1.7-liter turbo four that cranks out 237 hp and uses a dual-clutch six-speed automated manual that can be shifted manually.
With its feather-like weight, low center of gravity, and race car-like weight distribution, the 4C is a pure sports car that's fun to drive, with superlative handling.
However, the unassisted steering requires a high effort at low speeds, visibility is challenging, and access is arduous.
A Spider version is available with a removable fabric roof panel.
