Some cars are built to do a job, and some cars are built simply because they are beautiful. The spectacular Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is decidedly one of the latter.
Based on the impossibly beautiful 4C Coupe and launched in 2015, this soft-topped version is the ultimate in open-top travel. Aside from its removable roof, the 4C Spider is near-enough identical to its stablemate aside from the addition of some stiffening in the body to compensate for the lack of roof.
That means it’s mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive, with a design that employs lots of lightweight carbon fibre to ensure it’s both incredibly lightweight and taut. It’s powered by the same turbo-charged 1.75-litre petrol engine, producing 237bhp and 350Nm of torque, taking just 4.5 seconds to reach 60mph and then advance to 160mph. When you drop the anchor, lightweight Brembo brakes bring you to a standstill without drama.
It has a low-slung seating position, wide track and race-inspired suspension, giving it brilliantly flat handling that feels sporty even when driving at low speeds. Gear changes are taken care of by a full twin-clutch automatic transmission, which you can slip into manual mode and control via wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
