Well, the Alfa Romeo 4C is now the fastest production car within it’s class to do a lap at the Ring, (Nürburgring). The time of 8 minutes and 4 seconds is now the fastest time for a car producing less then 250BHP. The Alfa Romeo 4C ran the same time as the Porsche Cayman S but still beats it because the Cayman has more horse power I believe, so doesn’t count in this race. Correct me if I’m wrong.

I’m surprised the Alfa Romeo 4C managed to finish the lap in working order. Alfa Romeo’s have a terrible track record for reliability. There are people now working towards making sure that the Alfa Romeo 4C does not stay at the top for very long. There are lots of competitors. In particular, Porsche, BMW, and Renault.

They have a tough road ahead. The Alfa Romeo 4C Weighs well under a Ton (895KG) thanks to the use of Carbon Fibre, and this is one of the reasons why it’s so fast on the track. The Alfa Romeo 4C is a beautiful car to look at and since it’s release they have been flying out of the showrooms.
