alfa romeo 4c to cost 54k in u s when it arrives in q2 2014

According to Road & Track’s twitter feed, the Alfa Romeo 4c, which the magazine is test driving, will arrive in the United States sometime in the second quarter of 2014 and will have a base price of $54,000. So far R&T reports that on the street the 4C has a very Ferrariesque character, while on the track not so much but that it’s still very fast. At that price it will compete with the Porsche Cayman, though with an annual production of less than 3,000 units planned, it’s safe to assume that some dealers may add on something to the price.

    First and foremost, the 4C is a halo car to reintroduce Alpha to the American public and establish its branding as a performance car company. It will never be a volume product and was never intended to be a volume product. It's all about establishing Alpha identity. Second,it's a toy. Toys don't need to be practical, they don't need to have a certain horse power or power to weight ratio. They need to be interesting, quirky, unusual, very pretty or otherwise different or stand out from the crowd. Lesser vehicles worry about reliability, hp, practicality, etc. Toys need only be exclusive and interesting. The 4C is a compelling and relatively cheap toy that looks like nothing else on the market. It will do well.

      Too bad no one will find the dealership by searching 'Alpha'.

    Yesterday I went for a walk on lake como and while i was crossing the street one passed in front of me! I like the car very much and it is also much nicer in person than it is in the pictures. It has a nice sound for a 1750. To bad I didn't see it parked to get pictures of it.

    Car and Driver , which claims it has actually driven a 4C in real life, has predicted the American version of this car will weigh a much much porkier 2,650 pounds and has downgraded its horsepower rating to to a more popcorn fart 237. Additionally, C & D asserts that American versions will lack the exhaust note of the European version. Did TTAC just reprint the Alfa press release for this story?

    TTAC SCANDAL ALERT! Here’s the skinny on the 4C’s vaunted “power to weight ratio.” It appears that TTAC pulled a fast one for apparently cutting and pasting directly from Alfa’s gushing and wildly-fraudulent press release. The latest on this scandal from Motor Trend’s own, and TTAC’s alumn Johny Lieberman: “the new 4C is principally light, though not quite as light as Alfa is claiming. Italian carmakers have this horrible habit of weighing cars without certain fluids—oil, gas, coolant, transmission and brake. They also tend to leave out airbags. The result is a meaningless number they call “dry weight.” Alfa claims the U.S.-spec 4C will weigh 2083 pounds (the Euro version will weigh about 100 pounds less because of no side or knee airbags, no A/C, and a fixed, non-sliding passenger seat). I’m here to tell you that the 4C’s actual weight is going to be closer to 2500 pounds, if not more. Alfa’s number is pure fantasy” Read more: How about it TTAC? Publishing Alfa’s vaporware claims that are clearly willfully fraudulent regarding the car’s weight? tch tch tch. Who would have thought publishing the "weight" of a car and bragging about its amazing "power to weight ratio", and leaving out the gasoline, engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze, airbags, air conditioning, passenger seat bits and who knows what else?
