Nice drawing.
Judging by how hot my but gets in the standard 4C, I suggest they add a lot of air scoops and holes or it will be a killing machine. One of the fireball kind.

Another Award for the Alfa Romeo 4C

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat named "Best Muscle Car"
2015 Alfa Romeo 4C wins the Car Award for Sport Cars
The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Alfa Romeo 4C made lasting impressions on the automotive editors of Popular Mechanics, each being chosen as recipients of Popular Mechanics 2014 "Car Award."
For this year's Car Awards, the editors at Popular Mechanics got their hands on as many makes and models as they could and drove them all. The editors were looking for new cars that raise the game and standouts that are both excellent to drive and important this year. After lots of deliberation, they arrived at their favorites. The editors noted that "this year was particularly challenging because there are so many incredible cars and trucks."

The all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C received the "Sports Car" award for its groundbreaking and functional Italian design, ultra-lightweight design with a Formula 1 derived unilateral carbon fiber monocoque and responsive all-aluminum 1750 turbo engine mated to the paddle-shifting Alfa TCT (twin-clutch transmission). Popular Mechanics editors noted "on a twisty road, you think you are driving something that costs three times as much" and called the Alfa Romeo 4C "mid-engine Italian driving nirvana." The all-new 4C marks the return of "the great Alfa Romeos" and represents the purest formation of the brand's DNA with its supercar-levels of performance and innovation, all while focusing on making the driver an integral part and completion of the machine.

This one is from back in March.

It is written by an editor, apparently by an Audi fan.

Feel free to use google translate.
I like the approach and it should show another side to the sometimes vitriolic comments on Alfa here.

Who else makes a car like the 4C? Nobody, that's who.

Wow - a German with a sense of humour. Who knew?


Well, a sense of sarcasm, anyway.

Yes, the 4C is like no other car. But its fans are like no other buyers. And they are both likely equally rare. It is definitely a niche market. It's just that it happens to be an exciting niche!

Alfa Romeo Switching Gears To Build Sedan models in 2015

It may mean that AR will start delivering rear wheel drive sedan models sooner than we expected. What does this mean for the continued production of the Alfa 4C? Automotive News Europe....

Alfa will introduce eight new models by 2018 as part of Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne's plans to boost the brand's annual sales to 400,000 vehicles in 2018 from 74,000 last year.

Alfa has started development on three of the eight new models, sources told Automotive News Europe earlier this year.
The midsize sedan is one of those three models, along with a midsize SUV and a flagship large sedan. The flagship sedan will be sized between the BMW 5 series and BMW 7 series. The midize SUV will be about the same size as the Audi Q5. A second, larger SUV will follow later.

U.S. sales

North America, where Marchionne expects Alfa Romeo sales to go from nearly zero to 150,000, will be a key market for the brand.

Do you believe him?

If the car is a 3 series competitior, and it has flawless quality no
If it's a 5 series competitior and it has flawless quality , then also no
But
If it's an SUV (X3/Q5/GLK size) and it has flawless quality
Then the answer is no
