Thanks for sharing your favorite cars of 2011 with us the other day. While all of the cars in the TopGear.com roundup were special, for sure, your thoughts on the Audi RS3, Mustang GT500, and Subaru WRX were pretty spot on as well.
Well now that we’re a whole two and a half days into 2012, we might as well take a look at some of the cars TopGear.com is looking forward to in the new year.
The production Pagani Huayra, Porsche 918, Jaguar’s Cayman fighter, and a new Dodge Viper are all slated to see the light of day in the next 363 days. Additionally, we should get deets on the next 4 door Bugatti and the Alfa 4C should make it to the States. Even with all of that, we’re dying to see the next Mustang GT500 which is supposed to break the 200mph barrier.
We’ve selected some choice shots for the photoset above. Want to see the rest of the list? Click through.

Top Gear has an update on the dream that is the Alfa 4C. Its engineers are confident of getting the first prototype on the road for the middle of 2012, with the final car on sale a year after that. It will be distinctly exotic, but sell for under $70k:
I talked about the car with Mauro Pierallini, who’s head of engineering for Fiat in Europe. The 4C project is being run by a special quick-acting little team outside the main product-development bureaucracy, he says, and he grins and adds he’s personally in charge.
The show car used a carbon tub designed by Dallara, the racecar manufacturer which also consulted on the KTM X-bow, Alfa 8C and Bugatti Veyron. The production car’s structure is an in-house design by the Alfa team. It has a carbon centre tub as before, but the front and rear frames are aluminium. It’s cheaper and only a little heavier.
The car will be about the size of a Porsche Cayman. And it’s destinate per l’America.

TopGear has pictures of the Alfa Romeo’s 4C concept.
Slated to go on sale in 2012, Alfa Romeo is bringing this concept (the same as the 4C in red they unveiled in March, this time in silver) to this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It has a 200bhp 1.7-litre turbocharged 4 cylinder in support of just 1800lbs of car. That’s a lot of power without a lot of weight to push around.
Most importantly, it’s very shiny.
