15 June-Minding our own business when THESE roll up (Huayra /4C pr0n)

Minding our own business today in Woodland Hills, when these two rolled up This is one reason I tolerate southern cailfornia !

New Alfa 4C ( the standard production car, not the 'launch edition', MSRP around $54K). Car looks better in person than you might expect:

So the 4C it has new headlights, right after launch. It is a rare thing for a manufacturer to respond so quickly to criticism. Nice leather covered dash too.

With some new wheels I think that looks pretty sick for only $54k. Now the Huayra is sick but I have just never liked the interior on them.

Yeah. The interior is really what's stopping me from pulling the trigger on one.

But its badass as hell if you can afford one haha, but thats coming from someone who cant. If I really had the money I dont think I would just because of the interior.

Everyone else can have all the other cars but the Miura is mine! (Lol I wish.) I personally think it's one of the most beautiful cars ever built...ever.

The 4C needs wider wheels or spacers to fill in that huge gap. With the right set up I can see that car looking pretty sick though.

Not sure how there are complaints on the Pagani interior. The pure quality of all the materials used and especially in that color combo it looks like perfection! Only part i don't like is how they made the navigation/info screen a center piece. I prefer the way Ferrari puts it in the gauge cluster. As the tech grows old it will not be a glaring reminder right in front of your face and age better.

Those rims are iconic of Alfa. That would be the one part of the car you absolutely couldn't change.
