A while ago it was reported that the new Alfa Romeo 4C lapped the famous Nurbugring track in 8:04 - a time that made it one of the fastest cars with engines under 250 HP and in line with times set by sports cars with much higher prices and more powerful engines, like the Audi R8 V8 and the Porsche Cayman S.

Now Alfa Romeo officially confirmed that time and released a video to prove us all what a great car the 4C is.

The car was driven by journalist and expert on the German track Horst von Saurma and was equipped with special Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tyres, the most sporty version in the Pirelli P Zero line.

This is one of the countless tests that the Alfa Romeo supercar had to face in every part of the world, from the -35° in Sweden to the +40° of Abu Dhabi, from the Arizona (USA) deserts to the slopes of Mt. Etna in Sicily, and from the Balocco (VC), Italy track to the one at the Nürburgring. During all of these tests the 4C did a great job, so all we can say is: please Alfa bring the 4C to the U.S. right now!
