You haven’t seen an Alfa Romeo 8C this clean since 2009

Bingo’s Tokyo Shin-Kiba 2 auction is bursting with pristine collector cars, and one of the most immaculate examples available is this delivery-mileage Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione.

While not everyone is in love with how the Alfa Romeo 8C handles, there are two things about this stunning early-2000s supercar that petrol heads around the globe unanimously agree upon: it sounds divine, and it looks absolutely otherworldly. Collectors have gone crazy over cars that only tick one of those boxes, so it’s no surprise that the 8C Competizione is steadily attracting Italian car connoisseurs from far and wide. 

Production of this 444 horsepower Ferrari V8-powered design icon spanned from 2007 to 2009, and that’s likely the last time any of us will have seen one as virtually perfect as this delivery-mileage example from 2008. Showing a mere 234 km on the clock, this 8C’s striking Competizione Red paintwork remains wholly unblemished, as does its enticing Poltroon Frau Black leather interior. We always encourage our readers to drive their cars to their heart’s content, but this 8C really is deserving of a spot in a museum. 

While this mint condition 8C is certainly not lacking in appeal, it’s worth reminding ourselves just how rare these Italian grand tourers are. Just 500 8C Competiziones and 329 8C Spiders were ever built, and they sold out almost instantly at launch, making them far rarer than their contemporary counterparts from Ferrari. So, if you’re looking for a drop-dead gorgeous supercar but aren’t so keen on the assumptions that often accompany a prancing horse badge, keep an eye out for this Alfa Romeo 8C at Bingo’s Tokyo Shin-Kiba 2 auction on April 13th
