Truly very beautiful. It will come with a Turbocharged 1.8 Ltr petrol putting out 240bhp, and a six speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifts. Quite a usable sports car then.

Hi,
Many thanks for posting the picture. Truly gorgeous car. Somehow Alfa consistently produces such seductive looking machines. Top Gear often goes gaga over the beauty of the Alfas, but consistently call them unreliable cars. Is it true? Isnt it time Alfa came to India? Even if it is unreliable, it cant be more unreliable than Tatas, can they?

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider spied for the 1st time;

The prototype wearing camouflage on what appears to be a Targa-like roof which can be stored in a special compartment in the boot.

Chances are the 4C Spider will feature a redesigned engine cowl while underneath will be the same 1.75-liter, 4-cylinder turbo engine outputting 240 HP and 350 Nm of torque transferred to the rear axle via a dual-clutch gearbox.

Expect the curb weight to be slightly higher than the coupe's 895 kg.

The Alfa Romeo 4C at the Dubai Motor Show 2013. I've got mixed opinions on how this car looks though.

Alfa Romeo will become stand-alone company.

Quote:
Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has decided to turn Alfa Romeo into a stand-alone company -- like Maserati and Ferrari -- as part of his latest plan to revive the struggling brand.
Marchionne will announce that Alfa's new status when he unveils his new strategy for Fiat-Chrysler on May 6.
Alfa will become a stand-alone legal entity within Fiat Chrysler with a publicly disclosed profit and loss statement

German trio is much more unreliable than Tata cars. I wonder if you know this. Tata cars at least do not leave you stranded and limp home, unlike these "premium" German cars. But yes, I agree with you. Alfa should come to India. It will be a welcome change from boring and too-common-these-days German cars.

Marchionne has apparently decided to sell the new alfa-s via existing and new Jeep dealerships, outside of Europe and the US that is. Is this a possibility in India as well i wonder, and hope, when Jeep dealerships are launched here, next year?! I don't know about cost competitiveness as CBU-s of the new Alfa-s but I do figure that the Indian luxury car market is open to alternatives beyond the ubiquitous 3 three German marques. The germans are fuddy-duddy in their brand narratives and experiences by now compared to the storied, lucid, vivid sporty, young, vivacious image and history of Alfa Romeo.
