The car to end all cars?

There's been a lot of speculation about when the Alfa Romeo 4C will be introduced, but the company has just confirmed the model will debut in 2013.

Called the "car to end all cars," the 4C is slated to become the spiritual successor to the 8C Competizione which won over buyers despite being more style than substance.

Alfa Romeo has remained surprisingly quiet about specifications, but the production model is expected to feature a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that develops approximately 230 hp (172 kW). While that doesn't sound like much, the 4C's lightweight construction and dual-clutch transmission could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds and hit a top speed of roughly 250 km/h (155 mph).

I was unsure of the design, until I saw the concept in person. Beautiful car...

I very much like Alfa Romeos, but I find the 4C's styling very difficult to love...

Alfa Romeo think this car is a 4gone Conclusion; that it would outsell the opposition, namely Lotus's groundbreaking Elise. However, they need to make it first and hope that it would actually be reliable enough to get anybody's attention at all! Great promise yet to be realised; the jury's out on this one!

This needs to cost over a third less than the base F-Type. Different cars I know, but nobody is going to choose this over the Jaguar.

On the contrary, it's beautiful just like 8C Competizione, thats the power of extravagant design.
