Latest Info From AR Aus

Got an email today from Alfa Romeo Aus.
Basically gave some brief info on the 33 Stradale and then a link to some 4C wallpapers...
As much as I like hearing about that amazing car the email was only 50 years late.
Perhaps we'll get some info on the 4C in the year 2064! Sure seems like it won't be any sooner...

Hang in there guys, I am sure it's anytime now since Hong Kong and Japan has already taken orders.

Got the same email... Yawn...

Hey d2xed. The 80 odd people who placed pre-orders are on a list with AR Aust. They have first dibs (in order of when they placed a deposit) on the 300 coming to Australia this year (believe that number at your peril). 100 LE's and 200 regular versions.

Unlike other countries, Aust peeps on the list will have the ability to view and sit in a 4C before confirming their order.

The ability to sit in the cars is great when they finally launch it here in October. Then we 80 or so pre-depositers get to sit in the car and choose our options. But then I reckon we will not see our actual cars until 2015 Q1 at the earliest!

I hope I am wrong & then it might be a nice Xmas present this year!

Not doubting you Alfavic but has there been an official statement that we'll get to see one in the flesh in October?

No official sources, except the printed mags (Motor) whom says it will arrive in October.

Also I was one of a few Alfisti asked to submit their Alfas for selection as the back-drop for the 4C Launch. Originally slotted for July/August, now for early Q4. So I guesstimate it's October.

And we were not asked about the options we would like to have?

Really strange, unusual - that on top of no official announcement?

I doubt very strongly that the cars will be built before their summer holidays,
