2015 Alfa Romeo 4C First Drive Review: A Budget Ferrari?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Is there such thing as a four-cylinder Ferrari on
a budget? Nathan Adlen filed this first drive review of the 2015 Alfa
Romeo 4C to explorer this subject.
The all-new 4C builds on top of a carbon fiber monocoque (or tub)
structure, which weighs a mere 236 pounds. Aluminum subframes and Sheet
Moulded Compound body panels compose the rest of the automobile. The
US-spec car weighs in at around 2,400 lbs at the curb.
When combined with the Racing Exhaust
system, this car might just have the best sounding four cylinder in
The heart of the 4C is a 1750 cc all-aluminum four cylinder engine with
direct injection and a clever turbo-charger which aims to eliminate lag. The
result is 237 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and
258 lb-ft of torque @ 2,200-4,250 rpm. It converts to 135 horses per liter
of engine displacement, or 10 pounds of weight per horsepower. EPA rates the
4C at 24 MPG city, 34 MPG highway, and 28 MPG combined.
The Launch Edition is being shipped now, and you will be able to pick it up
at 86 initial North American dealerships by the end of June. Expect the
fully loaded Launch Edition 4C to retail around $68,000.

Monster Energy: Ballistic B.J. Baldwin - #RECOIL
How do B.J. Baldwin, a 850-horsepower Trophy Truck with
34-inches of suspension roaring pell-mell across the Mojave Desert at 150
miles an hour doing things that just really are not conceivable, a dazzling
damsel in distress and her diamond in the asphalt D-Sport automobile, the
big neon glitter skyline of Las Vegas and one of the most opulent
hotel/casinos on The Strip all end up in one atom-splitting, retina
stinging, mind blowing piece of incandescent cinematic magic? Good
question. And one we can't answer.
However, even though it is April 1st -- this is no joke and today Monster
