The biggest new cars of 2014*
*So far. Here’s our round up of this year’s hottest new metal. What are you saving for?

Alfa 4C Spider
Though it impressed Hammond on his thrash around Lake Como, it's fair to say the Alfa 4C hasn't met with universal approval. But we're quietly hopeful the convertible 4C will be a finer prospect than the fun-but-flawed coupe.
Why? For one, it looks even better, the replacement of metal roof by canvas hood doing nothing to harm the 4C's lovely lines, and the replacement of those weird ‘moon crater' headlights with smoother affairs actively improving things.
For two, we're promised even more noise and a more compliant ride. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until 2015 to find out if Alfa's got it right.
