Playboy Magazine Names The All-New 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C As One of its ‘2015 Cars of the Year’

With its race-inspired performance and advanced technologies wrapped by seductive curves that can only be handcrafted in Italy, Playboy magazine named the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C “2015 Car of the Year – Sports Cars and Convertibles.” The annual award from Playboy represents a hand-picked list of their favorite vehicles in 2015.

“The gorgeous Italian exchange student you loved in high school isn’t coming back, but the stunning Alfa Romeo 4C
is now here after years of being away,” said William K. Gock – Automotive Writer, Playboy. “This lightweight carbonfiber- framed pistol uses flowing body curves, highly stylized alloy wheels and a monstrous engine roar to announce Alfa’s grand return. Behind the wheel it’s obvious the 4C is a machine built for high-speed cornering, not casual trips to the corner store, which is more than enough to earn our esteem.”

As part of the “2015 Car of the Year” selection process, William K. Gock spent time test-driving countless cars for
Playboy and worked with the publication’s editors on the final list of winners.

“ Playboy’s best sports car award speaks to the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C’s seductive styling, race-inspired
performance and how hot it is in the marketplace,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Alfa Romeo North America. “With its
sexy, head-turning mid-engine Italian design, each 4C represents more than 100-years of Alfa Romeo racing
knowhow and Formula 1 inspired technologies – a combination we’re excited to offer North American enthusiasts
and at a fraction of the price of other carbon fiber chassis supercars.”

The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and Playboy’s “2015 Car of the Year” story can be found in the magazine’s special
