My only complaint about the headlamps is they look unfinished.

CF / painting / hell even a clearcoat would do wonders.

At least they look easy to replace, either with aftermarket or the much nicer set they'll come with in a few years.

Looking at the other turntable videos with the driver's door open, I'm thinking this thing is going to suck in US crash testing. We'll see.

Also, $70k?? So much for the original, "we're going to build a 1000 kg mid-engine sports car for less than 30k and it won't suck" from last year's shows. Yeah right. If this thing doesn't handle like a Lotus it will go the way of the Saturn roadster at that price.

No pricing has been released for USA yet. If you are referencing €60,000 as the price you converted, that is for the special release "Launch Edition." The regular version will be much cheaper. AR has said that it was still aiming for ~$50k (Porsche Cayman territory). They really can't go much higher as the Cayman is there.

well, Alfa sold this for 160.000 €


Rumours says that the normal version will be at 50-55.000 €

But to be fair: they never said anything about 30 grand.

I thought when they presented the flat red car they said they were going to make a mid engined car for less than 30k. Maybe they meant euro? I would agree that it (would have) sounded like a stretch give how ambitious the project sounded, but they also hadn't said they were going to use a carbon fiber chassis at the time.

ps- I don't disagree that the car probably needs to be $50~60k to absorb all the tech they seem to be putting in it, plus they could reasonably compete with the Lotus, but I don't think they have a chance of stealing most Cayman customers.

With 500 of the 2500 units destined for the US they're not stealing anyone's customers.

They aren't? You don't think this car will be cross shopped?

I love the headlights. Spiders are cool and at least they're doing something different than the Audi LED-crap that everyone is doing now...

That is an extremely good point Manticus
the LED lights are the Altezzas of this decade.

I think the lights look a bit weird, but I bet at night they look amazing.

Also had to watch that 8C video..

Twice.

That car could be the most beautiful thing I have seen produced in a very long time. I would put it on part with the E-type, and the Ferrari 275 GTB

This car AND the 4C are the reasons Alfa needs to put all its styling prowes into a sedan and bring it here. NOW!!!!

I do not care how fast it is.

Well put, torquemada, but I was referring to more of a 3 series (F30) sized sedan, and I would hope it would sell for around 40-50k, just like a 335i. I guess I should have said I want Alfa to build a Alfa Styled 335i.

Plus I have always thought the Masarati's were.. a bit ugly.

If this were 30K I'd buy reserve mine now. If it's priced comparably to a Cayman... I'm getting a Cayman.

Why stop dreaming there, why not expect a 911 turbo for $30k?

The 4C is 1000# lighter than a Cayman, they are going to be very different cars to live with. Since a new Cayman starts at $52k, looks like you'll be buying one of those cause this isn't going to be cheaper.

Still blows my mind how light they were able to make the 4C. Really is a great job.

Its a sad thing that Ferrari canned the Stratos.. Since it was built off a shortened Ferrari.
