Alfa Romeo 8C
8C Competizione to become a limited-run production model in 2007
Alfa Romeo has confirmed that it will put its beautiful 8C Competizione concept car into limited-run production.
The two-seater coupe is widely based on Maserati running gear, from the 4.7-litre V8 to the suspension, and is reminiscent of the great TZ coupes Alfa made in the '60s.
The car will feature a six-speed paddle-shift gearbox and will produce 444bhp. Given that it's a carbonfibre body over a steel chassis, that should mean TVR-level performance.
Early estimates put the price at over £100,000, though with only 500 being made, it might be an idea to put your name down now if you want one parked in your drive for Christmas next year.
