Car of the Week: Alfa Romeo 4c

I know, two Alfas already... I can't help it they are gorgeous! As the guys from Top Gear say, "You are not a car nut until you own an Alfa." (I am still working on this Alfa owner thing...) This particular one is a concept car that is supposed to be on sale as a 2013 model and even available in the US! It is a small, light, mid-engine car. Only 4 meters long and weighs a light 900kg! The engine is a turbo charged 1.7 liter four cylinder that makes 230 bhp. While the statistics are pretty exciting (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds) it really is the looks that make this thing so desirable for me. It looks like my favorite car, the Lotus Elise, only the Alfa did a much better job with the design. MSRP? Supposed to be in the $50,000 range... almost... nope, can't afford it. Here are some pics from the Top Gear site and an add off of YouTube.
Love the pillar-less look and all the subtle crease lines.

What about in a matte red?
The most beautiful door ever?

Alfa 4C add.
