This little guy is my wife's daily driver. Anyone know what it is? She gets asked that question all the time and yes, that is 100% factory. My wife is a Speed Racer chick. She likes to go fast and this does 168 mph.

Quoted from Clytor:

I would guess it's some kind of GLC AMG? I dig it.

Close. It is an AMG GLA 45 Yellow Night edition. Limited to 300 a year. Only 18 were shipped to the US this year. This is the last one produced in 2018. 375 hp with a 4 cylinder. It is the fastest production 4 cylinder made.

Quoted from robertmee:

The CLA 45 and Alfa C4 are faster. https://carbuzz.com/features/5-quickest-4-cylinder-cars-on-the-market
Or maybe you were referring to the engine, and not the car.
Still, awesome car....don't know that I've seen one in person.

Yeah the CLA 45 and GLA 45 are same power plant but the CLA has a slight edge 0-60 do to less weight. They both have a top speed of 168 mph. To be honest, the GLA is way more fun to drive with the suspension tweaks. The Alfa numbers are funny to me because they seem to change all the time. I’ve rather have the 375 hp and space to stretch my legs. Besides, the Alpha C4 dies on the vine around 130 mph

Quoted from robertmee:

Top speed on the c4 is 160 mph, so I hadn't heard anything about dying at 130. The c4 is a track monster, less an acceleration or top speed king. I drive the Alfa Quadrifoglio which is both an acceleration and top speed killer, and it handles quite adeptly. But I have an acquaintance that owns both and prefers the c4 over the quad for track duty.
At the end of the day, they're all awesome and I would gladly drive any of them. I especially appreciate the uniqueness of yours. I can't stand driving something everyone else drives.

You're my new friend. I like to see the European cars get some respect. To me you have the much better Alfa of the 2. The C4 is sooooo small but I'm sure it is a terror on a curvy track. Did you post a photo of yours on this thread? I really missed not see Alphas on the road when they pulled out of the US market. Glad to see them back. I remember when I was a young man working as a delivery driver at Pizza Hut. My good friend at the time drove a beater Alfa GV6 to deliver pizza in. He drove it until it died and then replaced it with a Alfa Milano while still delivering pizzas. Possibly 2 of the worst choices ever for delivering pizzas especial in the winter in the Midwest. What can I say, He was an odd guy.
