Alfa Romeo 4C – the verdict!
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 about.
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 month.
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.
