I think Alfa grows their own car show girls from a certain pure water fountain high in the mountains.

Hideous, hideous headlamps. Why Alfa, why.

I like almost everything about this, apart from those bizarre headlights. It's not as pretty as an Elise but it should be easier to live with. If they drop a dealership or two in my area I may be hard pressed to pass this up. Looking forward to seeing the convertible version.

That said, I like the shape better than the 8c. And the price point.

Does it say whether a 6'4" mofo will fit in this thing?

Damn it looks fantastic in white.

If the Elise was an indication, a 3-4 year old 4C might be a very affordable fun car.

6'4" fits in an Elise without much drama, it's tubby and big that struggles with those cars. Adding a helmet may be a tall order.

I'm 6'5" and I know I don't fit in a Elise (or a Boxster/Cayman or a miata, etc, etc). Not sure how someone one inch shorter can?

Because people always seem to forget that your height standing barely correlates with your height sitting. I'm 6' and could barely fit in the Elise, but I'm tall from the waist up, so I actually don't fit in a lot of cars I should (my head hit the ceiling in my M3 with the seat at the bottom and I can barely fit in my Evo X with a helmet on). If I had longer legs than my torso, it wouldn't be as big of an issue because I could move the seat back. My dad is 6'1" and has no problems in the same cars, because he's shorter in the torso by an inch or so than I am. Also, the way you position your seat naturally has a lot to do with it, my dad tends to lean his seat way back whereas I prefer a more upright position.

He might be all legs, you might be longer in the torso. Hence why he fits just fine, but you didn't despite the insignificant height difference overall.

It has bumper covers and (I'm assuming) bumper beams under them, that alone is a huge improvement. It's composite but so is a Corvette. The replacement parts are bound to be expensive, but they are intending to sell a lot more of these than Lotus did Eliges.

I'm 6'3" or 6'4" and fit in it great, I could wear a helmet but it would press against the soft top. I'm not talking about squeezing in and making it work, I mean comfy. YMMV, different shapes and all that.

895 kg -yeah!

spider eyes -booh!

what happened to the good-looking headlights from the 8C? The "trefoil" shape was never better expressed than in those.

Have to agree with one pundit that this car is not going to look as good in person as it had from afar with the earlier show car. I would hate to buy an italian car for it's performance and not for its looks- just seams wrong.
