You know that feeling… You’re pootling down the motorway on a very wet November day when suddenly there’s a puddle of water in your path.
More lake-size than puddle actually – and the Alfa Romeo 4C has about three inches of ground clearance between it’s composite body and the great British Tarmac.
This is not a good moment to be in a car with no power assisted steering, massive wheels and huge amounts of power on tap.
Sideways in a 4C even at 40mph sharpens your senses. It’s another reason why you really have to know your driving skills to own a car like this.
It’s not a forgiving Golf R, or a BMW M3 for that matter. Get it wrong in a 4C and all hell breaks loose…
