For The Alfa Romeo 4C combines supercar looks and performance with agile handling. It’s competitively priced, too.

Against A small boot, thinly padded seats and awful rear visibility make the 4C hard to live with every day.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Alfa Romeo says it wanted the 4C to be more focused than a Porsche Cayman yet easier to live with than a Lotus Exige, but while it has achieved this, the 4C is a lot closer in character to the Lotus than the Porsche.

If you're looking for a sports car that you can use every day, then, the Porsche is a much better buy – especially when you consider that it's still amazing to drive on twisty roads. The 4C's blend of style, performance, rarity and feel does give it plenty of appeal, though. So long as you have another, more practical car as well, it's well worth considering.

There’s just one version of the 4C at the moment, but Alfa Romeo admits that the engine has been engineered to cope with a lot more power, so an even faster version seems a certainty. An open-top 4C is also planned, and this shouldn’t require much chassis stiffening, thanks to the car’s incredibly stiff carbonfibre tub.
