The Alfa Romeo 8C competizione was launched in 2008 as the forerunner of the Italian automaker’s return to the U.S. market. The limited edition Alfa Romeo sports car features a carbon fiber monocoque, 4.7 Liter Ferrari V8 sitting between the front wheels and curves shaped to move air around the vehicle. That power plant is good for a total of 444 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque that can accelerate the car 8C competizione from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 181 MPH make it one of the most desirable Italian sports cars of the modern era.
The beautiful dream that was introduced as a concept car at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show has made it into production. The gorgeous Alfa Romeo 8C has been presented after three years at the recently opened Paris Motor Show in sales-ready configuration. Fortunately, the car closely follows the lines of the original prototype and is most likely to become the most beautiful Alfa Romeo ever produced. The looks are sustained by Maserati supercar technology offering a 0 to 60 sprint 4.4 seconds, and a top speed of 190 mph.
