It’s a pathetic article. I was feeling guilty for letting my subscription expire (and keeping R&T and Automobile). It’s just a rehash of very old news. I’d expect Consumer Reports to have a better article. They say nothing about new engines or losing weight. They say the 3.2 Q4 Spider will go 0-60 in 7.0, and have a BASE price of $48,200 (They can estimate price to the nearest $200!)
Of the 159, they say, “Oh, and it drives as good as it looks.” Do you think they ever drove one?
They say the base price of the Brera will be $48,500 and that it will do 0-60 in 6.8 seconds.
It's not even an article. They have pictures of the US-bound models with a small caption underneath each that describes the basic specs of each car along with an estimated price. They also have pictures on non US-bound cars and speculate about their successors being imported to America in the future. The whole thing covers about two pages and in my opinion cannot even be called an article. I don't know how the 8C made the cover when virtually no new information is offered on it. The editors should have saved the cover for a when they had a real article.
Got the issue...yeah, the Alfa bit is dissappointing but the magazine itself is worth it for the article about the 60th anniversary of Ferrari. It includes background history that includes some info on Ferrari's early relationship with Alfa Romeo. Excellent pictures too.
