After many, many delays, the Alfa Romeo 4C is finally here. We've been hearing about the impending arrival of the compact, lightweight sports coupe, which marks the return of the Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S., since 2010 when parent Fiat announced a 2012 on-sale date. We got a glimpse at a would-be production version last year, but it never went on sale.
More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage
Better late than never; the actual production model was just unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and the automaker promised a June on-sale date. Two versions will be offered, the 4C and a limited-edition 4C Launch Edition; only 500 of the latter will be available and it will go on sale first.
