The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione with it's Full Carbon Fibre Bodyshell was first presented as a concept car at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show and later released for sale for the 2007 model year. The name refers to the eight-cylinder (cilindro in Italian) engine (8C) and Alfa Romeo's racing pedigree (Competizione, Italian for 'competition'). Alfa received over 1400 orders for the 8C after the official announcement that the car would enter production, however only 500 customers were lucky enough to own the 8C Competizione and another 500 with the 8C Spider. Only 40 cars were built for the UK market and this is one of those cars. The lines of the twin seater echo's the styling of Alfas of the 1950s and 1960s, and the "Competizione" name is a reference to the 1948 6C 2500 Competizione which competed in the 1949 and 1950 Mille Miglia race driven by Juan-Manuel Fangio and Augusto Zanardi. The V8 engine produces 444bhp and 347LB Ft of Torque, meaning that the car is capable of a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 181mph.
This is now a Highly Collectable Car, an Iconic Classic in the making and we beleive this is the only Coupe for sale in the UK today.
