Alfa Romeo 4C –
Buying an Alfa Romeo is more often a decision made
with the heart, not the head. And up here in the Alpine sun, as we stare at the
new Alfa 4C, it’s easy to see why. It’s low, wide and muscular – a stunning
shape and so very near to perfection. But is the future of Alfa good enough to
cast aside old prejudices? This month, Top Gear magazine gives our verdict.
Richard Hammond also gives us his thoughts on the
4C. A man who knows that you’re not a real petrolhead until you’ve owned an
Alfa, he is now seriously thinking of making the big step; and we look back at
our love affair and passion for Alfa over the decades.
Also this month, we drive the new BMW 4-Series to
see whether it can compete with the rivals in its class. And we speak to some
very clever people from the Daimler advanced development department about its
Mercedes S-Class that has just driven 60 miles in normal traffic – unmanned!
We find out if the new Monza concept can make
Vauxhall cool again and pitch the Rolls-Royce Wraith against the Bentley
Continental GT and the Range Rover SDV8, in our most luxurious road test ever.
As always, we bring you all the latest motoring
news from across the planet and review all the cars that you need to know
And, of course, Top
Gear magazine is the only place where you can get the intellectual
ramblings of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May each and every
Free Top Gear Guide to Watches 2013
This month’s issue also comes with a fantastic free
supplement – the Top Gear Guide to
Watches 2013. Covering all the shiny new watches worth knowing about, the
future of timekeeping and some incredible timepieces inspired by Mercedes,
Ferrari and Bentley.
Our editor-in-chief, Charlie Turner gets ‘hands-on’
at the Bremont workshop, and we look at the evolution of the ultimate motoring
racing watch, the Tag Carrera.
We also visit Detroit, a city that once produced
four of every five cars sold in the world, to see how Shinola watches are
taking the local workforce’s mechanical expertise and scaling down the
production lines to produce some engines of a smaller nature.
