During the Mondial de l‘Automobile 2006, Alfa Romeo announced the production of a limited series of 500 units of the 8C Competizione. The car uses a modified Maserati platform and powertrain and features a Ferrari/Maserati derived 90 degree dry-sump lubricated 4.7-litre V8 assembled by Ferrari. In addition, the carbon fibre body is fitted to a steel chassis, made by Italian company ITCA Produzione.
The six–speed transaxle gearbox has computerized gear selection by means of levers behind the steering wheel and can shift in 175 milliseconds when using Sport mode. The 8C also has a limited slip differential and brakes were described as "phenomenal" by Road & Track magazine. The official top speed was announced to be 292 kilometres per hour (181 mph) but the car is rumoured to be capable of 306 kilometre
