My Alfa story began in the mid 90s with a Milano Platinum. When it ran, it was outstanding... "When" being the operative term.

As my career progressed, I was blessed to work for Alfa, helping to run their experiential events at places like Amelia Island and Pebble Beach...including the very first public ride & drive of the 4C back in 2015. I absolutely fell in love with the 4C then (and was blessed to get lots of seat time in Giulia Quadrifoglio as well.)

CRX, Mini, Miata, Viper, Porsche...as my life grew, so did my ability to own better and better cars. Just recently I sent a note to my friend and asked him to keep an eye open for a 4C for sale. He replied "Why don't you just buy mine!" I didn't even know he was looking to sell! I flew to Atlanta, we did the deal and I brought Launch Edition #455 home on a 300 mile road trip to metro Charlotte. I truly can't believe I have a hand built, carbon fiber chassis, Italian sportscar in my garage. Amazing!

I hope to meet you all in person and enjoy this machine to the fullest.

Welcome and congratulations. It looks like a friend in need (of selling) is a friend indeed. Nice intro. Hope to hear more about your 4C experience as time goes on.

Congrats and welcome!

I didn't realize LE #455 used to be in my part of town. Let me know if you are ever back in ATL, and we can compare how much dirtier #302 is. ;)

Welcome to the forum @johnhammer & congrats on your 4C LE.
Finally we get a new owner of a 4C that has had plenty of seat time in one before their purchase - most of us bought them new without ever having driven one. We just put our faith in Alfa and trusted that they knew what they were doing with this particular piece of Italian art.
Have fun getting acquainted with your little Italian carbon tubbed sports car. They are made to be driven enthusiastically, which I am sure you will love when you find the right roads.
Cheers,
Alf
