Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Alfa Romeo is coming back to the US this year and what a way to kick it off. This is the gorgeous offspring of an Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati (all owned by Italian Fiat) after a wine fueled ménage à trois. She is powered by a V8, 4.7 liter, 450 bhp, 32 DOHC Maserati engine. The most expensive road legal Alfa to date, she comes in at US $240K. The name and design harken back to the 30’s, the heyday of Alfa’s racing heritage.

I had a 84’ GTV6, that at only 185 bhp with great mid-range torque would raise eyebrows where ever I brought her. I can’t Imagine this thing... well actually I can.

Fantastic image, I like how the dramatic sky contrasts with the classic Alfa Romeo design. I for one cannot wait for the next generation of Alfa Romeo to hit the US!
