WHO among us could honestly claim to not getting a thrill even from a photograph of the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe. This is a gorgeous addition to the Alfa Romeo line, for which the carmakers have referred back across the decades to the swinging 1960s. The 4C is an homage to its iconic 33 Stradale, and a contemporary upgrade of its finest engineering principles, while losing not an iota of the original vehicle’s beauty. Here is how the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe shapes up in appearance, driver & passenger comfort, technology and overall performance.

 

1. Appearance

The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is a spectacular addition to the lineage of the iconic flagship Italian car manufacturer. This coupe—with its characteristic power under the hood—is inspired by the design of Alfa’s 1967 33 Stradale, which is considered by enthusiasts to be among the most beautiful cars ever made.

This successor embodies the well defined lines of contemporary car manufacturing, but blends it with the retro romanticism of its mid-20th century forebear. The 4C is just as gorgeously shapely as the Stradale. The famous ‘plunging neckline’ front grille is intact, while the front and rear overhangs make an unfussed yet dramatic impression.

The coupe embodies the finest principles of automotive beauty, aerodynamic design and dramatic power that are synonymous with the Alfa Romeo brand.

The powerful performance of the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is enhanced by an interior that taps into the aesthetics, materials and construction of high-powered sports driving. There is a choice of fabric or leather seats, the tech and instruments are discreet and wrap around the driver, and the flat-bottomed steering wheel gives the motorist the feel of sensational motoring power and control, even while the vehicle is stationery!

The 4C must be one of the smartest, most convenient luxury coupes ever.
