The 4C has arrived for Andrew Harting, our CEO. - 20/05/2015
At long last the 4C has arrived for Andrew Harting, our CEO. Andrew was kind enough to let me assist him with running the car in and gaining a first impression.
Andrew decided to specify his 4C with the Rosso Competizione paint finish. It really sets the car off beautifully…and we had heard rumours that Alfa Romeos were faster in red! When you see the 4C on the road, it has the stance of a compact supercar. Heads turn wherever it goes. There is a certain skill to getting in and out in a dignified manner but it is certainly worth the effort to get behind the wheel.
The detailing on the car is spectacular with the star of the show being the carbon fibre tub, a material used on very few supercar chassis. This gives the 4C it’s incredible lightness and rigidity and this really shows when behind the wheel. This is not a soft and forgiving car but the way it drives is all consuming. The thing that you notice straight away is the complete lack of inertia. The 1750, turbocharged engine gives incredible torque from low down the rev range which means that the 4C just takes off on a whisper of throttle. The drama and noise that comes with the relentless thrust of acceleration makes things even more intoxicating.
It is fair to say that every drive is an event. For sheer fun, drama and sense of occasion this has to be one of our favourite cars.
