Alfa Romeo 4C proves to be a pure enthusiast's car.
Famed Italian brand returns with a coupe that's not for the faint of heart.
Alfa Romeo returns to the U.S. market after an almost 20-year absence, lead by the striking 4C coupe - a mid-engine, rear drive, two-seat sports car wrapped in a sensual silhouette. In our initial drive, we found this Italian coupe to be a real treat for driving enthusiasts, but it also brings compromises.
The Spider version offers open top motoring with a fabric top one must unlatch and roll up. And since storage space is scant, you're likely to either leave the top in the passenger's foot-well or in your garage.
To explain the name: 4 stands for four-cylinder, C for competition.
