ALFA ROMEO – 4C SPIDER
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, the most sophisticated go-kart or most affordable supercar- take your pick.
At just 1035kg, the Spider weighs the same as a Toyota Yaris— but has nearly three times the power. So it’s fast. Alfa claims 4.5 seconds for the 0-100km/h sprint.
Pictures don’t do it justice. Truly, this thing is sex on wheels. It’s made at the Maserati factory in Modena, Italy, so you know the quality is top notch to match the glowing price tag.
This car is quick around the corner so perhaps not best for carpool school pickups, but if you have a bit of cash to splash and like a fast ride, this is the car for you.
