What does it take to make a sports car reminiscent of those legendary machines from the Sixties and Seventies? If you ask Alfa Romeo than you should ask, “what does it not?”
After introducing their Alfa Romeo 4C, the Italians showed the world they can craft a fantastic sports car with a small four-cylinder engine, a footprint of a mosquito and excitement of Hulk. Alfa Romeo 4C does not have any fancy equipment. They have put it on sale even without servo assistance, air-condition and without any interior luxury amenities.
On the other hand of the equation could be a German small coupe – like this fancy Audi TTS. Motor Trend put both to the test. It may look like comparing apples and oranges, but the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Audi TTS has some similarities – like a turbocharged engine and a double clutch gearbox and that is about it.
The Alfa Romeo 4C is a driver’s car – it is precise, fast, cool, has rear wheel drive, mid-engine layout and can pull some serious lap times. Honestly, it does not feel like Audi could tackle it, but we are talking about Germans here. It is almost all what the Alfa Romeo 4C is, but also something more – one can drive it everywhere, every day and it has a freaking boot and plush seats and can be almost comfortable and everything. Audi TTS is almost like a 4C but then some more – it is a car. Enjoy one of the most amazing comparison reviews ever done on Motor Trend Channel. And yes, it is fun and cool and honest.
