Glad to see it hasn't gone through the same sort of change the Brera did from concept to production:lol: The rumored track based version that they mention sounds like my sort of car! Nearly £50k for a 1.7 litre engine might put a lot of people off though...

Entirely pointless

I know the 2 year delay has put of 3 people personally. Also it was rumoured to be £35-40k back then.

As good as it looks it's going to more more sh1t than all of it's competitors.

How about not having a sig at all?

As I commented on Evo's posting on FB, it looks like Alfa's take on a Mk 1 Elise.

Something witty goes here.....

Jorg Gray Ltd Edition Watch Number : 313631

That is lovely, I'll buy mine when they're down to about £10,000 which with Alfa's depreciation will be after about 20 seconds from leaving the showroom.

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

Alfa build quality, reliability and resale value up against a similarly priced Boxster S ? Pretty it maybe and as much as I love Alfas the price tag just doesn't fit their current status.

Carbon chassis too, so imagine what the repair costs, therefore insurance costs will be!!!

They would make sense at £30-35k.

Boxster for me too at £50k. Or only a few £k more for the Exige with a supercharged V6.

This ^

its priced too high... it looks lovely though

That was always the intention, wasn't it?

Apart from the price, which has spiralled massively. I wonder what the margin is expected to be on the build, ignoring the development costs? Because they could sell an absolute load of these at, say, £30k or so and I bet they'd make more profit overall than selling half a dozen at £45k+.

Looks lovely, but not £50k lovely.

Weren't they touting a £20k figure when the concept was first shown?

Too many old sheds.

<30k it makes sense and would rejuvenate the brand no end .

£50k is just too much. Carbon fibre construction if daft at this level too.

they are developing mass production carbon techniques for main stream cars, the costs are a fraction of what they where and in 10-20 years odds are most cars will be carbon

if its carbon based it may be built by a specialist company so shouldn't have the problems of a normal alfa

i think it looks stunning, far far better than the cockster or gayman

my only concern would be the noise that a 4 pot can make, its got to make the right noise, thats critical in a car

They are coming to the US too apparently through Chrysler. Pricing similar to the Cayman so approx £35k here. Probably worth a test drive but if I was looking for that type of car it would be tough to look past the Porsche.

CF has clearly come a long way, but it makes this car too expensive IMO.

about the same price as the new f type and the porsche offerings come in at around that money with a few boxes ticked

Now if they could turn something out like this for £35K 8)

50K GBP (American keyboard layout :roll: ) for a 1.7-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine :shock:.

I don't care if it's made out of CF think I's rather have a Cayman or Boxster, Exige or even save a bit more for a F-Type.

Yep, I agree, way over-priced.

Sod the carbon construction. If they'd have made it out of Aluminium, slung in a high revving 2.5 V6 and priced it a smidge under £35k, then they'd probably sell pretty well.

A 4cylinder 1.7 turbo just doesn't cut it.

Is the engine small for dodging Italian car tax?

I don't even think it's proper carbon is it? Its that composite stuff most manufacturers use in bits of cars, even cheaper than steel.
