With Alfa Romeo putting a majority of its time, effort, and focus into both the Giulia sports sedan and the Stelvio SUV, the company's sports car, the 4C, has been pushed into the shadows. For the 2018 model year, it looks as if both the coupe and spider variants will continue twiddling their thumbs, as the only changes involve available options.

First Ever Alfa Romeo Model Is Heading To Auction

  First Ever Alfa Romeo Model Is Heading To Auction The 1921 Alfa Romeo G1 was the company's first car, and this is the only complete model left in the world.First. It’s what everyone wants to be, or own, or preferably both.

2018 Alfa Romeo 4 C Spider The rest of the 4 C formula remains exactly the same: raw, balanced, light, and feel-it-in-your-chest stylish. A carbon-fiber monocoque and an aluminum chassis keep the weight at bay, as the last 4 C Spider we tested weighed just 2504 pounds.

There are two changes for the 4C in 2018: An optional front fascia with carbon-fiber vents is added, and the interior with black leather seats and yellow stitching is now offered on black, white, and Basalt Gray 4C models. Previously, the yellow stitching was only available on cars with Giallo Prototipo (yellow) paint. Apparently, hyperspecific color coordination is not as important these days. To add the $1500 yellow stitching requires the $2000 leather upholstery, for a total upcharge of $3500.

The rest of the 4C formula remains exactly the same: raw, balanced, light, and feel-it-in-your-chest stylish. A carbon-fiber monocoque and an aluminum chassis keep the weight at bay, as the last 4C Spider we tested weighed just 2504 pounds. The rear-wheel-drive and mid-engine setup make for sublime handling, and power comes from a 237-hp turbocharged inline four-cylinder. Utilizing a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, our test car sprinted from zero to 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds and hit the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph.

Let's hope that it will.An all-new WRX won’t hit the streets until the end of the decade, but at least now we have some sort of a preview to ease the wait. Debuting today in Tokyo, the Viziv Performance Concept is an aggressive high-performance sedan that boasts a multitude of carbon fiber parts to shave off weight. It has been used just about everywhere, including for the bumpers, fenders, roof, as well as for the spoiler at the back.

That's the good. Offsetting that is that the starting price of $57,495 for the coupe ($67,495 for the Spider) increases rapidly with options, the car lacks a manual-transmission option, and livability is rough. The 4C is a blast to drive, but it may be a little less enticing to own on an everyday basis. Of course, as we've mentioned before, there's some charm in owning what it is and not sacrificing its exciting driving character to fix its flaws as a daily driver.
