For better and for worse, the Alfa Romeo 4C is an unforgettable car. No regular 2017 production vehicle offers a purer, more immersive driving experience—or demands as much tolerance from its occupants for high NVH levels and other comfort shortcomings. You can check out our recent road-test experiences with the 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C here and here, but we thought that the outrageous bodywork, the unusual ergonomics, and the many interesting details of our latest 4C tester deserved a closer look.
