I partly blame the lack of press in the US on the fact that Alfa's not here quite yet (soon, thank God!), and thus an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality, whereas I'd get perfectly excited over a Vauxhall if they were putting it out, even though I'll never see one on a street here.

And I have to say, I'm surprised over the folks that don't go for the back end. I love it.

I think the 8c is hawtness!! Although I do wish that they would have given it the same amount of power as the Ferrari 599 that shares its architecture.

That was the one part of the body that I noticed right away. So simple and curvacious, yet sexy. Man I love that car's styling!

Well, they tried to stay away from that and give the Alfa a feel/sound/personality of its own. The reason being is that many didnt want a rebadged Ferrari, so thats why Alfa tuned it down a bit, made it sound a little different too from what Ive read.

Has word come down what the expected MSRP is going to run? So much good stuff in that segment, between the DB9, the new Maserati GT, the M6, it is a great time for car enthusiasts.

I actually can't stand Spykers, and I think they are WAY overpriced.

Best looking car ever.

Aston's currently models are drop dead gorgeous, no doubt. I still think the Alfa is the sexiest car in the last 5 years, if not longer. The problem with Aston Martin is that all the models look strikingly similar.

I agree, and if you throw the top end Jags in the mix that further dilutes the brand image. My concern with AM is and always has been reliability, or lack thereof. How would you say the AR stands in this category?
