ALFA ROMEO 8C COMPETIZIONE (2008), CHASSIS N. 035542, ENGINE: V8 Ferrari-Maserati, DISPLACEMENT: 4691 CM3 POWER: 450 BHP, BODY STYLE: Coupé, A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE ‘BACK TO THE ORIGINS’ ALFA ROMEO; The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione was launched in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show and produced in 500 units. This model has been developed by Alfa Romeo with Maserati and Dallara, and produced in the Maserati factory in Modena. Its name reminds us of the great Jano-designed in line eights “8C” models of the 1930s, as well as the postwar 6C 2500SS Competizione. Jeremy Clarkson described the 8C Competizione as “the most beautiful motor car ever made”. The heart of this car is the Ferrari F136 engine, a 90° DOHC V8, developing 450 bhp (331 kW) at 7.000 rpm and 470 N·m at 4.750 rpm: 80% of this torque is available at 2.000 rpm. The carbon fibre body of the 8C was inspired by the magnificent 1967 33 Stradale, in turn based on the 33 racing cars. Together with the public, the critics loved the 8C too, awarding it many prizes such as the "Design Award for Concept Cars & Prototypes" at the 2004 Concorso d'Eleganza di Villa d'Este. The 8C we are offering today was originally bought by a well known Italian family and later sold to today’s seller, an enthusiast who kept it perfectly and used it sparingly. The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.
