ALFA ROMEO 8C COMPETIZIONE
It was unveiled as a concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, but enthusiasts had to wait until 2006 to be able to book their purchases. Only 500 of these cars were built, and they were all sold even before they were produced.
The Alfa Romeo supercar took its name from one of the Brand's historic codes - used in the Thirties for eight-cylinder sports cars - and excited fans and collectors not only with its return to rear-wheel drive but also with much more: the 8C Competizione was a concentrate of the best of Italian technological innovation in the field of high-performance cars.
All "clad" in bodywork with sleek, sporty lines, the cockpit's centre of gravity shifted towards the rear and the Kamm tail: a masterpiece created by the Alfa Romeo Design Centre, headed by Wolfgang Egger.
Front-mounted 4.7 litre V8 engine of 450 horsepower, rear-wheel drive and robotised transmission, 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds: a pedigree sports car, in pure Alfa Romeo style.
This car has always been owned by the company. After a thorough check-up by the FCA Heritage technical experts, it has been awarded Alfa Romeo Classiche Authenticity Certification.
