Alfa Romeo’s stunning 4C Wins WhichCar Style Award at the Australian Motoring Awards

Alfa Romeo’s stunning 4C supercar has added yet another accolade to its overflowing trophy cabinet, claiming the WhichCar Style Award at the Australian Motoring Awards in Melbourne last night.

The Alfa Romeo 4C swept the pool of four finalists to be crowned Australia’s most-stylish car, with WhichCar General Manager Mark Orval declaring the 4C the “absolute standout of the final field of contenders for the WhichCar Style Award.”

All four finalists were judged by an expert panel, including Australian automotive designer Paul Beranger, and editors from Australia’s biggest lifestyle titles – BelleReal Living and Men’s Style.

The finalists were judged against five key criteria, including design innovation, functional ergonomics, stand-out features, value for money and how well the vehicle appeals to its target market.

Men’s Style editor and WhichCar judge Michal Pickering was blown away by the 4C’s exterior design, declaring the Italian supercar was: “Akin to an automotive Sophia Loren.”
