It's a beautiful car, but the front grill just doesn't quite seem right to me. Though that's probably something I could live with...

Ultimate fantasy - driving this around Sardinia's beautiful inland roads on a september evening.

My trousers just got tighter.

Competance executes, character inspires

I desired the coupe, despite all of its short comings - and I desire this even more.

Top down, nice long tunnel and foot wedged to the loud pedal.

You can keep every other supercar made today, this is the only genuine artical. Beautiful, flawed, charismatic..... fanbloodytastic!

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

It is beautiful!!.....its simply beautiful! ......go on Alfa!!!

1,600kgs for a small, open 2-seater? you sure those 'carbon panels' aren't lead-loaded?

£175K? And they say you can put a BMW roundel on a turd and sell it for stupid money. The krauts are amateurs at price-gouging in comparison to the eyeties.

This thing doesn't look a million miles from an Opel GT/Pontiac Solstice.

Absolutely gorgeous, and surprisingly perhaps, white really suits it. Good to hear it is a better drive than its coupe sister, but it still needs to be a little better to do justice to those svelte lines, me thinks.

Regardless, I'd give my err......no, scratch that, I dream of winning the lottery just to buy one of these.

Give it a rest obamabeach aka horseandcart. 1, 600kg for a V8 open-top supercar isn't heavy at all.

I love it.

However at £175k even if i won the lottery (and could find one for sale) there are other cars i'd rather have in the price range.

'supercar' - is that super in the same sense that you're a supertwat?

God, that really is a sad little post. Sums you up really. Do you really have to resort to childish abuse just because you have no argument? How old are you? 13??

1600kgs is about the same as the Ferrari 599 although for the crazy price I know which one I'd rather have, especially as it's LHD only.

However it's a bloomin' gorgeous car!
