2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
- “Alfa Red” body color
- The successor of a legendary Alfa Romeo icon
The "8C Competizione" was first introduced as a concept car in 2003 and quickly gained popularity.
The “8C” comes from the legendary 8C Series, which won prestigious races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1930s and 1940s, it was designed by Vittorio Jano.
The name "Competizione" comes in honor of the “6C 2500 Competizione” driven by Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1950 Mille Miglia.
Therefore, the "8C Competizione" is called the successor of the legends.
It’s the first two-seater front-engined rear-wheel drive coupe since the Alfa Romeo SZ, and features a naturally aspirated 4.6-litre V8 dry sump engine. As the name "F136TC" indicates, this high revving engine, which produces a maximum output of 450hp at 7,000rpm, is a high-performance model made by Maranello.
The transmission is also the same as Ferrari's F1 and Maserati's Cambiocorsa, a 6-speed semi-automatic called "Q-Select". The body is full carbon, inspired by the 33 Stradale, along with a classic ‘masked-look’, the ‘backbone’ of the design.
The body colour of this car is the traditional "Alfa Red", and the interior is dressed in black Poltrona Frau leather with the seat pattern that were popular at the time.
Despite its classic styling, it has a top speed of over 290 km/h and accelerates to 100 km/h in less than 4.2 seconds. No exaggeration to say that this is a car with supercar level of performance, but even without this power, there are enthusiasts who are attracted to the car’s design alone.
With the beautiful body lines that symbolizes Alfa Romeo and the power derived from Ferrari and Maserati, this is not only a high performance sports car, but also a car that reminds us of the history and capability of the Alfa Romeo brand.
The odometer reads 234km, it’s rare to find such a low mileage car even in overseas auctions. The condition of the interior and exterior is as good as new, and of course, it comes with all the accessories such as factory tools, body cover, and warning triangle.
