There’s no denying that the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is one of the most eagerly anticipated sports cars to come out of Italy these days that doesn’t carry the Ferrari badge.

That’s how much hype the sports car is getting; any news about it is definitely gonna catch the attention of a lot of people.

So with that much going for it, Alfa Romeo decided to give everyone a behind-the-scenes look at how it builds the 4C. And by "behind-the-scenes,” we don’t mean the sort of time-lapse videos that we’ve seen in the past; this one runs well over 8 minutes long and goes in-depth into the process from beginning to end.

It’s a fascinating watch to put it lightly, especially if you’re one of the many people who are anxiously waiting for the sports car to finally hit dealerships.

Trust us; this is a video that you should be watching in its entirety.

To say that the Alfa Romeo 4C is an important car for the Italian automaker can be construed as a massive understatement. With the brand having kept idle in the past few years, it needed something to jump start its business, and that’s what the 4C is set to once it hits dealerships.

The car itself takes its name design from the 33 Stradale, "a car that combined extreme mechanical and functional requirements with an essential style.” In other words, Alfa Romeo worked hours on end on this car to ensure that it lives up to its promise of being a dynamic and agile sports car.

That much was accomplished. On top of that, though, the Italian automaker also fitted a 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that’s slated to develop more than 200 horsepower with a 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) time of less than five seconds and a top speed of 155.34 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy.

To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
