Kind of looks like the evil step sister of the F80 lol. I like it! Performance numbers seem promising as well.

That front opening should be atrocious. But somehow it comes off as Evil. Nice.

Rear a bit too thick / low to ground for my taste. But overall very sharp.

Based on what I've seen of other Alfas it will probably look even better in person. There is a certain something about them that never really translates 100% in pictures in my opinion. It sounds awesome as well.

That said it's Italian, built with passion not precision and the odds it will leave you stranded on the side of the road are a good bit higher than the F80. And there is no dealer network to speak of in the US as well.

I actually like it. Only issue is as someone stated, dealer network in States is not there and how much more will it be then the M3? Cuz a EURO delivered M3 is $57,500 and that can be negotiated down to invoice now days. Gonna be hard to pull me away from that .

Great looking car. Based on the videos I've seen, not crazy about the exhaust note. Then again, there's not a turbocharged car on the market (south in price of the hybrid-exotic crowd) that I like the sound of. They all sound like hopped up tractors to me.

I don't agree with that statement. M3 allocations are super hard to get now. I don't see a dealer doing anything off of euro msrp. Maybe a couple hundred max.

Looks mean... Very interested to see what this ends up being like once it's produced. May be a viable alternative. Won't know till we know.
