Alfa Romeo 4C takes on the rivals
Hammond fell in love with it, but can Alfa's new coupe see off a Lotus Exige S and Porsche Cayman S?

But perhaps the best thing about not driving the 4C is following the thing, its round tail-lights burning like cigarette tips through the spray. What a pretty car this is, from the plunging neckline of the front grille to shapely hips that could only come from Italy. The engine is framed in the glassy rear hatch, which looks like the one from a Ferrari 430. You can see all this for yourself in the pictures, but what you don’t get is a sense of presence. Maybe it’s because it’s so new and unfamiliar, or maybe it’s just those arresting looks, but somehow you just know it’s something a bit rare – like a celeb in a room of nobodies.
