Lost In America

How much of a shortcut is a shortcut?

Once the digital connections go dark, navigating gets more difficult. Oh the days of printed maps. Eric and Michael make a wrong turn that takes them 200 miles off course and they need to double-time to keep the road trip on schedule. The bright side is putting in the hard miles gives Eric an opportunity to share some deeper thoughts about the Alfa Romeo 4C.

Follow us on a five part journey across America in the Alfa 4C Spider, be the first person to find the car and post a picture on Twitter with #huntfor4c, #contest and @thedrive for a chance to win a pre-paid 2-year lease on an Alfa Romeo 4C, tax and title included, an almost $40,000 value. Get off the couch and find out for yourself what its like to get behind the wheel.

The Hunt is on. 

Here’s the story: We’re going on an epic road trip in the new Alfa Romeo 4C. And when we’re done, we’re going to leave the car somewhere between Los Angeles and New York. We’ll post clues, hints and tips for all to see in the Hot Laps newsletter, the review videos and in social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This is a contest, a game of skill. The skill here is working the clues, getting up off the couch and going out on the road yourself to find the car. The first person to find the Alfa Romeo 4C and prove it by crossing the prize claim line, tweeting a photo of themselves with the Alfa, with the hashtag #huntfor4c and #contest, and meeting all requirements, as stated in the official rules, will win the contest.

What do you win? A pre-paid 2-year lease on an Alfa Romeo 4C, tax and title included, an almost $40,000 value. And if you win the contest and you don’t want the car, you’ll have the option of an alternate cash prize instead.That’s how it works in plain English. A full set of entry details and official rules is available here. Be sure to sign up here to receive daily clues and exclusive hints.
