Besides the "nice color", I think that it has the same flavor as the new Ferrari FF. I think it looks better than the Ferrari FF, but is too similar to the Ferrari look. The bigger back end is a drawback in my opinion.

It is a nice try by Alfa Romeo. I would at least look at it.

thanks for the feedback...yes red is a good point to start:laughing:i agree FF line is a potential suggestion but i like this Zagato declension and doors design come from a Ford GT 40...
with 8 Cilindri Competizione Alfa Romeo returned to the essence of her brand,we call it "Cuore Sportivo"...i hope only cars like this come to you guys from overseas,this is the reason why Alfa Romeo born ...born to run...

In a country where Car is more than a word,where engines are more than a tradition,a lifestyle...a spirit that's groving inside of you, make you desire just one thing ...power,we only could offer the best,i think this is our path to come back in USA...

How about medium segment car like our Spyder? do you think american market would be interested in cars like this?



.... or Brera...



or our next Spyder project design by Pininfarina...

Thumbs down on the Zagato, looks like an early 60's Can Am car.

The Spyder project design by Pininfarina is very nice. If I had one I would paint the chrome "coffin" grill body color in an attempt to make it go away. Its an overstatement & seriously detracts from an other wise pleasing design on the nose.

Just my opinion & you know what is said about opinions.

Nearly all Alfa Romeos are beautiful, and these are no exception. I'm a little surprised there's no "double bubble" roof on the Zagato. I would take any one of them. :thumbsup:

Thumbs down on the Zagato, but I love virtually every other Alfa on the market right now. I'd also like to see Peugeot follow Fiat back across the pond and bring us some of their offerings.

The Zagato would sell great in America if you added a 4 cylinder hybrid engine and a Toyota badge. For some reason, most cars offered only in hybrid form offer a similar, yet brand indicative, rear end treatment.

I know asking this to C4 guys it's a rhetorical question,but what do you think guys about a future that's showing to the horizon the end of big cubic Era?Experts in market and economy say that future is small...,small cubic engine,small car,Hybrid-powered ecc...this will kill our passion,like an extincting species do we try to save our old C4?Or it doesen't happen,and ,trend in the market, do will maitain this tradition of muscle car and big engine for the next years?
European school shows that you can do powerfull car even if powered by small engine,and Japan too,and there are a lot of fans...do you?

I've seen most of that car before. It's called a Cobra Daytona Coupe. I like it.

i think this modern restyling of historic classic it's the key...BMW does it with Mini Cooper,in Italy this car is a must for young guys (hi school age 18-20 and it costs $ 27.000 > $45.000 cabrio john cooper Works!!),Fiat does it with new 500 a real best seller,VW does it with new beetle.
But guys belive me if Alfa Romeo returns to ancient splendours,only real sports car ,this car would be desirable exotic...
