I was in love with this car when I first saw it a few months ago, and then I did the English translation for Quadrifoglio......

This car is basically called 4 leaf clover and has a clover on the front fenders.....

I'm going to chalk this one up to the marketing guru's that tried to market the Chevy Nova to south america in the 80's.....

Dude, the 4 leaf clover thing for alfas has been in place since during wwii. Hardly anything new. Always used on Alfa racing cars and range toppers.

Seat backs look like garbage with those exposed screws though. Are those wood screws?

well I don't know Alfa's that well, but I can tell you that I am not interested in driving a car with a 4 leaf clover on it....

I feel like I'd have to wear a green suit while driving it, have a pot of gold in the passenger seat, and talk with a funny accent to everyone when around it....

So, of all the reasons to not like this car, the clover is what really sets you off?

Also, it's better they delay the launch than to crash and burn with issues.

Its between that and the front end.... Originally I was going to buy a 997 turbo S sometime this year, but then I saw the specs and looks... I could get passed the front end, but not the clover, plus I'd have to have a license plate that said lky chrm or something like that.....

Then engine gives me a hard on for sure, and the sides and rear are spot on - and if you go to Alfa's site and spec one in white with red calipers.... mmmmm - but I just wouldn't be able to get passed that 4 leaf clover man.... personal preference!
