Car buyers also get their say at the What Car? Awards. The winner of our Reader Award - for the most exciting car to be launched in 2013 - is the Alfa Romeo 4C.
The readers of whatcar.com have gone for glamour when nominating the car they're most excited by in 2013. The mid-engined Alfa Romeo 4C has the potential to not only look beautiful, but be great to drive, too.
More than two years after the concept car made its debut at the 2011 Geneva motor show, the Alfa 4C is expected to finally arrive in the UK.
A production version of Alfa's stunning mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive 4C sports car is likely to be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva show in March, and it's expected to look all but identical to the concept.
Thanks to a mix of construction materials, including carbonfibre and aluminium, the two-seater 4C will weigh around 900kg. This low weight, coupled with a turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol engine generating around 230bhp should give it performance to match its looks. A 0-62mph time of less than five seconds is likely.
Alfa has previously said that it’s aiming for a price of around £40,000, but this could creep up by the time the car goes on sale. A convertible 4C could arrive in 2014.
