In his most recent column for The Sunday Times, former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson listed his top 10 favourite cars for 2015 and 2016 and included both the Alfa Romeo 4C and Ferrari 488 GTB in his rankings.
Clarkson’s owned a Ferrari before and has talked about his love for them on length on Top Gear, but he lays some extremely high praise on the 488, saying it is his favourite car to ever roll off the automaker’s Maranello production line. In his words: “As a driving machine, it’s — there’s no other word — perfect.”
As for the 4C, well, it’s a little bit more faulted. According to Clarkson, it has “almost no rear visibility,” there’s a draught from the bottom of the doors and it’s extremely loud. That doesn’t take away from its ability to make you smile, however. Clarkson says it’s a “terrible car,” but he also “adored it.”
