The fact that the US-spec version of the Alfa Romeo 4C doesn’t turn into a weighted-down pig of a car due to US-mandated requirements is pretty amazing! In fact, the review states that the car being driven was particularly robust.
Although I’m usually pretty vocal about this car not being the end-all-be-all of hardcore sports cars (the car has been quite sensationalized), the car is gorgeous and I love the “lighter is quicker” concept. It’s not the car I desire, but I’d be lying if I stated the car was ugly and not a driver’s car.
