The 4C is the signal for Alfa's return to North America. Theres a new RWD/AWD sedan in the works as a supplement, and I doubt the Giulietta will make it across as it's essentially the Dodge Dart

Damn, I missed that part. A small lightweight sports car should be available in a manual.

It sure looks good though. The next accessory car like an Audi TT?

As lame as it is, Alfa Romeo manual transmissions are garbage. I don't know if they ever bothered fixing the dreaded syncro problems.

Having said that, I'd still own another one.

They have their own.

Alfa Romeo is using a 1750cc turbocharged engine, a tribute to the famed 1750cc engine used in their classic cars.

EXACTLY the cars that came to mind. lol

Very nice though. Would love to have one. If it really is for Boxster-ish price, that wouldn't be bad at all.

Kinda confused about why a car like this wouldn't be available in manual...

If you've ever owned an Alfa Romeo, their manual transmission are the worst. (Not joking. I speak from experience. They never got it right.)

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

$73k in Canada. Not bad for a car that goes 0-60 in 4.1 secs but I've read the car feels "cheap" possibliy because they had to save so much weight. That been said, it would be a fun weekend car and to bring to the track once in a while.

An interesting proposition. On paper this is everything I'd ever want in a car. Quite a bit less than the Evora. Very cool dash. Too bad about that no 6Sp + No LSD + No trunk.
