Well My other Passion is Motorcycles. My Speed Fix is a Slightly Modded 2010 VMAX. Just over 200HP on a Dyno. And all of 685 lbs. Traction is an issue!

My family has had some interesting cars over the years. Currently besides my 4C LE, I drive a full size 2016 Ford 150 van daily beater and a 2018 GMC Acadia Denali SUV.

Past cars included 57 Chevy station wagon, 64 Ford Fairlane, 62 Pontiac Lemans with Super Duty setup (wish still had that it is worth a lot), 69 Camaro SS396, Dodge full size van, 69-70 ALFA spider that I owned for over 40 years with lots of mods engine and suspension (sold to make garage space for 4C, Also had a 124 TC Fiat four door sedan and VW Rabbit GTI. None cars included Yamaha TZ-350 factory F1 two stroke road racer bike raced by US team (possibly by Kenny Roberts)....had that one detuned a bit and setup to ride on the street. Also into bicycles because I was a CAT 2 road racer for years....still have Tomassini all campy, Nerossi Viner all Campy, and Mikkelson custom road race tandem. Also various mountain bikes although never raced those.
I also was co-owner of a 67 ALFA GTV B sedan SCCA road racer for a couple of years.

Just drive one ! It's a bit like the 4C, in that you will instantly love it or hate it. The great thing is that you can really hone around in it without hitting silly speed. I'd call it quick not Fast. Doe's frighten passengers though !

Want to add that I would probably enjoy a gnarly tuned Abarth 500.

My other four-wheeled cars are nitro powered R/C vehicles: 1 Kyosho car and 1 truck. Both modded. I have been building R/C stuff since I was 17 (now 51). I also have Carrera 1/24 and 1/18 slot cars.

It's a disease.

Daily driver has been a Jeep Grand Cherokee since I bought my first one in 1997 (97, 02, 06, 11, and a 14)
I will say that the 2014 Summit I just sold was the nicest one yet, 5.7 hemi with the ZF 8 speed - plenty of power.

Decided to finally mix it up and went to a Volvo XC60 T6 Polestar.
The 2.0l is an incredible motor - 330hp both turbo and supercharged.
Instant power whenever you want it.

Did a factory delivery in Sweden, they do treat you right.
Wish Alfa would offer that.......
