Alfa Romeo's 4C is the affordable super car with its carbon fiber chassis, mid-engine layout and head-turning styling.
4C coupes carry a base price of $57,495 including destination, while the open-top Spider commands a decent premium with a $67,495 starting price.
Sitting in the middle of the car is a 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
To produce all that power from the small four-cylinder engine, the turbo pushes in 21.75 psi of boost.
A six-speed dual-clutch transmission routes power to the rear wheels.
With its compact dimensions and lightweight construction, the 4C spider has a curb weight of just 2,487 pounds, while the coupe is slightly lighter to tip the scales at 2,465 pounds.
The 4C spider rides on 18-inch front and 19-inch rear Pirelli P Zero performance tires.
Alfa Romeo claims that the 4C Spider sprints to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 160 mph.
There's no blending in with the crowd when you drive a 4C in the public. Be prepared to receive plenty of attention in this sexy Italian.
If you plan on taking a road trip in a 4C, you'll want to pack light since it only has 3.7 cubic feet of trunk space.
