Na endlich

Nice sports car, 3.2v6 anyone
Jake Dula Feb 13, 2013
It's a bit silly to take up issue with spouting opinions taken from TG, i mean, c'mon, we all do it now and then. I will say tho, in my personal opinion, that Alfas almost always are pretty; with the obvious exception of this one, which is rather awkward and strange
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 13, 2013
Well alphas are amazing they have soul and passion that is only usually found in supercars
Emil Klossie Kleijsen Feb 13, 2013
@Tyler, it most definitely is
Jorge Gonzalez Feb 13, 2013
Is it not? It seems people love to repeat what Clarkson says, like the corvette being made of plastic, or the ferrari that supposedly spontaneously combusts, the 458 I think it was.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 12, 2013
@Jorge. No that's definitely not it
Connor Scanlon Feb 12, 2013
It looks like those silly body kits people put on smart cars to make them look like ferraris. Too smushed IMO
Jorge Gonzalez Feb 12, 2013
Everyone always wants to say it's beautiful just because the folks on TG said all alfas are art.
Jordan Smith Feb 12, 2013
Agreed. This is gonna be sick.
Steven Nevets Feb 12, 2013
Love it. This is going to look awesome on the road. Can't wait to see some more Alfas in North America!
Tyler Tarbox Feb 12, 2013
Except the 8C isn't the most beautiful car on earth
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 12, 2013
How could you think its ugly its derived from the most beautiful car on earth the 8c
Chad Romo Feb 12, 2013
I think the front is ugly
John Hyland Feb 12, 2013
Lotus body with ferrari taillights
David Lee Feb 12, 2013
And only I think it's ugly.
Pablo Herasme Feb 12, 2013
Not ugly, but just wierd
Jake Dula Feb 12, 2013
Looks like the first ugly Alfa to me. I'd much prefer a Brera based on this photo.
Nathan Alexander Orlando Kelly Feb 12, 2013
Rugged Ferrari? Haha. Love it though. Looks like a Ferrari Spider to me
Mohammed Shamma Feb 12, 2013
Beautiful ass
Dylan Bruder Feb 12, 2013
Awesome
Alex Bouckley Feb 12, 2013
I'm in love...
Matt Piccolo Feb 12, 2013
Looks awesome
Ivan Ryzhov Feb 12, 2013
Not the ugliest Alfa... Not the most beautiful either. Still not a bad looking car at all though.
Luke Purdy Feb 12, 2013
That looks sick!
Description: The design, penned by the Alfa Romeo Style Center, draws its inspiration from the classic 33 Stradale of 1967. The shape appears to have changed little from the show car, replacing the narrow side mir...

240 bhp now, but, this is what the aftermarket is for:)
Jordan Nishida Feb 12, 2013
One true classic
Antonio Falsetti Feb 12, 2013
Nice little car but way too expensive.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 12, 2013
Ha since i corrected car buzz for calling it a 1.7
Ferniand Silvia Feb 12, 2013
Its beautiful and a true sports car with Alfa passion and soul. Can't wait for the 4c and the new spider. Lets go Alfa Romeo!
Lou Guerrero Feb 12, 2013
I would've liked to see an Alfa V6 with the chrome intake runners under the glass but I still think its an awesome little car. Not something I'd aspire to own necessarily but I'm glad it exists.
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
I would definitely have to see a price tag before I make a real judgement. Alfa Romeo's haven't had the best reputation.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 12, 2013
Yeah this certainly wouldn't be an everyday car. More of a weekend or track car.
Ryan Yee Feb 12, 2013
No 6spd manual? What is this?
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
It would be fun in the sense that so is a go kart lol. But I couldn't drive it everyday.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 12, 2013
Really can't decide yet if this would be a good buy. Yeah it's only 240 horsepower but so is a Lotus Elise and that car is fast by any standards. Sure it has a low top speed but who cares. Power is good, but power to weight ratio is even better.
Pablo Herasme Feb 12, 2013
Usually cars with high horsepower high weight
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
Because to them it sounds good on paper, without having seen any test results. Name a few cars that sounded good on paper... But turned out crap.
Pablo Herasme Feb 12, 2013
You have no performance specs on this car yet and all of you are making assumptions, this car is going to handle like a train on tracks
Oscar Galvan Feb 12, 2013
I prefer a corvette too. This just seems ugly and even though the power to weight ratio is good I prefer other cars over this
Jake Dula Feb 12, 2013
It's a shame this thing will never work properly. It is an Alfa, it'll be broken down constantly. Lol
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
I didn't want to start a corvette debate. My point was, there's more out there for less. The price of this isn't justified. The brand doesn't it make it valuable either. Looks like a warmed over lotus.
Vincent Chen Feb 12, 2013
Would get this over a corvette any day. Alfa is way more classy
Jesse Jalapeno Feb 12, 2013
I would weather buy an evo for 30 and put the rest to the motor
Jason Ofhorrormoviefame Feb 12, 2013
It only weighs 2200 lbs. it is very similar to an Exige in weight, HP, setup, and price. I was really hoping it would be more though. Good to see some more competition in the segment at least!
Jesse Jalapeno Feb 12, 2013
I agree with david
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
Yeah but in today's sports car market and a car in the $60k dollar range, 240 is pathetic.
Tim Preisinger Feb 12, 2013
Nick, but it sure is something!
Nick Sti Feb 12, 2013
David, power isn't everything
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
I'd rather have a corvette for that price, whoever threw that one out there.
David Parenti Feb 12, 2013
60,000? for 240 hp. Ill pass.
Jon Ashley Feb 12, 2013
A dual clutch? I hope a manual is in the mix! All the italians seem to be ditching manuals for the DCTs.
Chris Huff Feb 12, 2013
* 1.3
Chris Huff Feb 12, 2013
The mazda mx-8 has a 1.6 liter
Stephen Wood Feb 12, 2013
Don't think I've evert heard of a 1.75 liter engine before
Redge Diakité Feb 12, 2013
It Will cost for you americans 60,000$ at least
Luke Purdy Feb 12, 2013
Nice little sports car this. Looks great, light weight, not too much power. Hopefully it's as good as it looks
Ivan Ryzhov Feb 12, 2013
If it's affordable that is.
Ivan Ryzhov Feb 12, 2013
This sounds like a wicked sweet car. All that horsepower, barely any weight and with that engine placement. This ought to be one hell of a sports car. Probably just like the GT-86 a future legend here.
Description: The whole package measures just 4 meters long, 2 meters wide, less than 1.2 meters tall and rides on a 2.4-meter wheelbase, placing it smaller than the Lotus Evora but bigger than the Elise. The chass...

That doesn't really change the overall design just the proportions
Lou Guerrero Feb 12, 2013
Only the 8C is FR and this is MR so be annoyed by yourself in a corner. No juice box for you.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 12, 2013
Its based on the 8c its getting annoying people comparing it to different cars
Jackson Michael Feb 12, 2013
Ya it's a squished enzo
Lou Guerrero Feb 12, 2013
Pocket ferrari
Jacob Burford Feb 13, 2013
Looks nice like always with Alfas
Adam Thomson Feb 13, 2013
I like the look of this car
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 13, 2013
I believe 2000 are being made
Josh Schmitter Feb 12, 2013
It's sad only 500 being made. This could definitely bring Alfa back to America. I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Nice to see them getting back to their roots, small lightweight nimble cars.
Clay Williams Feb 12, 2013
Go back to the concept headlights and this will go down in history as one of the most beautiful cars ever.
Jordan Nishida Feb 12, 2013
Beautiful.
Gavin Jaunky Feb 12, 2013
Lotus and Ferrari had a baby...
Aaron Crisp Feb 12, 2013
@Carl I'm going to take a picture like that and make it my profile picture just for you!
Joel Hayes Feb 12, 2013
Headlights ruin it
Wyatt Smith Feb 12, 2013
I've never liked the 4c, it just felt like to me that it was a design exercise to see how many triangles they could fit onto one car...
Daniel Alexander Soutar Feb 12, 2013
There's no other way of saying this: they cocked up the lights very badly indeed...
Ryan William Sprenkle Feb 12, 2013
I think this Alfa is just like all the other ones, hideous.
Wyatt Gordon Feb 12, 2013
This is disappointing, I liked the concept so much better.
Ben Knorr Feb 12, 2013
because we are just that awesome haha. :0)
Michael Kozlowski Feb 12, 2013
Looks like they just sprinkled a few led lights above the headlights...not feeling this car as much as I thought I would
Carlos Dorantes Feb 12, 2013
Damn those Italians sure know how to design cars!!!!
Oscar Galvan Feb 12, 2013
Maybe I'll need to see one first
Oscar Galvan Feb 12, 2013
I find this ugly
Brady Williams Feb 12, 2013
I love everything about it but the headlights
Tim Preisinger Feb 12, 2013
I think it's really nice, just a little underpowered
Jt Collier Feb 12, 2013
I cant get over it looking like a rodent in the front. i want to like it, i love the 8c but this just doesnt do it for me
Saqar Khudairy Feb 12, 2013
Looks like it has eyelashes, like how girls do with fiats
Joshua Rutkowski Feb 12, 2013
How is this any different from the concept?
Matt Piccolo Feb 12, 2013
Headlights r a bit odd. Still a great looking car though
Ben Knorr Feb 12, 2013
those headlights look like an afterthought. otherwise I think it looks beautifully unique. The 8C remains as one of my favorite sportscars, I absolutely love the way it sounds.
Luke Purdy Feb 12, 2013
Such a cool car
Jacob Burford Feb 13, 2013
Sweet rims
Austin Bride Feb 13, 2013
Not good for me. Looks like spider eyes. Definitely not diggin it.
Clay Williams Feb 12, 2013
They remind me of the smart coupes lights. You know the lights drifting in a sea of plastic look.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 12, 2013
Yeah the concept was so perfect and then they do that to the lights only alpha
Nick Benz Feb 12, 2013
Noooooo what happened to the headlight covers? These just look like complete hell
Jake Dula Feb 12, 2013
I do love Alfa's rims.
Jesse Jalapeno Feb 12, 2013
Not a big fan off te rims
Nick Sachs Feb 12, 2013
I like the rims for sure
Nithin Veliyuth Feb 12, 2013
hope thats not plastic..
Josh Barnes Feb 12, 2013
Looks as if it lacks headlight covers
