It’s curious, isn’t it, our obsession with Alfa Romeo? Maybe you just don’t see it, maybe you need to be a certain age, maybe you’re thinking you ought to indulge, even if you don’t get the whole Alfa thing, to see if you do get it if you own one. Maybe owning an Alfa is its own reward. Thing is, you won’t know until you have a go.
It’s not like you need a lot of money. A few thousand quid ought to do it, plus a bit extra for (suck your teeth now) running costs. That’s a whole chunk less than the new Alfa 4C pictured above costs. In fact, you should be able to buy all the cars you see here for less than the price of a specced-up 4C. Not that you should. That would be above and beyond the call of duty.
