It's all been said before. But now, it appears that it's for real. Alfa Romeo
has just confirmed to Top Gear
that they plan to get the first 4C prototype on the road by the middle of 2012, with the first production car to go on sale within a year after that. Speaking with Fiat
's head of engineering for Europe, Top Gear is claiming that the 4C project is being handled by a small, but special team that's working "outside of the main product-development bureaucracy."
