Forza Horizon 2 - The Alfa 4C

4c

With the arrival of the Forza Horizon 2 Falken Car Pack, looks like it's time to pass the torch on this flavor of the month which is the brand new Alfa Romeo 4C, the highlight of this month's car pack.

Before having one, I took on the brand new bucket list made exclusively for XBOX One players and this brand new Bucket List consists of challenges set by the Playground Games staff, like this one with the Alfa Romeo 4C. In that challenge, I have to reach a speed of over 115mph on this car. It sounds very hard to us because most of the challenges made in the "Beat Us At Our Own Game" bucket list is hard but judging by your experiences, you guys can surely do it! Speaking of which, I've already done this bucket list with three miles per hour more than the target speed.

If that wasn't enough, I even took part on a Monthly Rivals event made specifically for the Alfa Romeo 4C. I decided to do it quickly because...well, I'm not concerned about results. All I care is how the 4C behaves.

The 4C is one of the most anticipated models of 2013 since its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Not only that, this car marks Alfa Romeo's return to the US market although extensive changes have to be made in addition of fattening up the 4C to meet stringent US regulations. Either way, the 4C was heavily praised from fans and critics alike. It even won numerous awards as well.

Lurking from the belly of its carbon frame tub bodywork lies the same 1.7L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine from the Giulietta and it's rated at 240HP of power output. It's equipped with the 6-speed Alfa TCT Dual Dry Clutch Transmission and Alfa DNA which allows the driver to take control of the 4C's performance behavior. In Euro standards, 0-100kph takes 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 258kph, that's even quicker than those hi-po German 4-door saloons...as a theory.

I was greatly honored to drive Alfa's new lightweight sportscar and as a matter of fact, I was one of the many people who demanded to have this car be driven at the hands of Forza players worldwide. The crowd's gone nuts when they heard the 4C's going to be in Forza Horizon 2 as a DLC car but no matter. The 4C is a fun car to drive but because it's labeled under Sports Cars, it might face stiff competition from the Z4, the Exige S, the 370Z, or whatever in this category. Judging by the way it handles, the 4C is a great car for a start even at the hands of a novice.
