Alfa Romeo 4C priced at $53,900* in US

The US edition gains 342 pounds as compared to the Euro version

Unfortunately no driving impressions can be offered for the Alfa Romeo 4C, at least not for a few more days. But there is still good news that we can at least provide you with a few interesting non-driving-based tidbits from the launch program which is going to enlighten you on Alfa’s new "compact supercar".

Moving back in to time to when Matt Davis drove the European-spec 4C in the fall of last year, he guessed that that the starting price for the US would hover around $55,000 and this estimate was pretty close to the actual price because the starting bill on a 4C will be $53,900, plus a significant $1,295 for destination, netting out to $55,195 out the door.

This digit is exactly what we would expect from an Italian quasi-supercar but don’t think that this is going to be the exact amount you would pay in case you decide to buy the car. It is being said that $62k to $65k will be the sweet spot for 4C sales in the US so if you are hoping to get your hands on the 2015 model you will simply have to pay $69,695 (including destination). This is nothing considering the plus points which come in the form of low weight and beefier version; weight of the feather-light 4C will stay below the magical 2,500-pound mark (2,495 lbs., wet), it has still gained some 342 pounds versus the European-spec car.

2014 Lotus Evora S We have more from Lotus, with the British sports-car company giving us a response to our report that the company won’t be producing a 2015 Evora for the States.

But the good news is that Lotus is planning to bring the Evora back to our shores in 2016. “Lotus is committed to the North America ...

Lotus Position: Looking More Like Downward Dog

Sep 19 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The big surprise about Lotus’s announcement of job losses is that it has taken so long to happen. It’s been more than two years since former Lotus CEO Dany Bahar’s acrimonious split from the company and the axing of his ambitious plans to introduce five entirely new models. Since then things have been eerily quiet at Hethel, and sales of Lotus’s road cars have slowed to a trickle in most major markets. Yester ...
