    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    THANKS Rosso Nuvola

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    Beautiful car! I wonder why they made it an Alfa. They could easily have change the nose a little, call it a Ferrari and charge another 50% and still sell a crap load of it. Heck, this could have been the Dino!

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    If they call it Ferrari it couldn't have this design , because it's a "modern take" on the old Alfa design.

    For me its the most beautifull car that i could ever see with my eyes .
    They are all sould out ! ... but rumors say that they have too many orders for the 500cars available, and maybe they will make more than 500cars.

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    On of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen in my life hands down. I see so much passion in it's design!!! Simply Gorgeous.

    Asked for one directly at Alfa Romeo in Italy late September 06, got the answer that all cars were already sold at that time. It is a limited edition of just 500 cars.

    I'm sure they could sell 1000 of them at least...

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    Stunning car! Simply stunning. Whats the specs on the real-life version? 450 BHP? Is it heavy like the Spider? Cant see the speecs on the promo site.
    But wow! Wow! Wow! what a looker. Just amazing.
    Any idea about the price tag?

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    Stunning! I love the fact that a 599 drove past with a nonchalant cameo appearance!

    I saw it in CWharf in London and the dude told me it's about 120k GBP? Cant remember for sure tho. It's 6 figures alright.

    The problem is, being an Alfa, it's probably not going to be terribly reliable....(I can hear you say "who gives a toss!" - I agree! )

    I want one!

    alfa's have become reliable moto, plus it has the new 4.7 ferrari maserati engine..

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    This is supposed to be Alfa's shot at establishing a reputation of quality in the crucial American market. We all know that they haven't necessarily been known for that in the past

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring


    i was inside the "black one" at the Geneva motorshow ....i think that the price for this car is going to worth much more in a year or so, like it happened to the F40. i would take one over any Ferrari, if you see one live you will understand....

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    I have looked at some pics of the spider version and I think somehow it looks less stunning....weird....

    i want one!

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    thanks for the site rosso. i just checked the site , this car looks amazing.. flawless

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    200k!?! wow. give me a GT2 or a DB9 anyday.

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    Even at this price, all have been sold in advance and I can understand why. I was seriously considering one instead of a GT3 while orders were being taken, but in the end decided that in terms of pure performance and driver satisfaction, the manual shift and also possible mechanical issues with Alfa, the GT3 wins. Not so on the collectable front, though.
    I was a sucker even for the two recent GTA cars that Alfa made and of course those cannot be compared to the 8C. I also sat in the black one at Geneva and it was definitely something completely different. Lots of matt-surfaced carbon, F430ish main gauge architecture and wafer thin, but still comfortable seats. The exterior color undermined the sculptured surfaces, though.
    I look up to this car as something reborn from the classical time of Fangio.

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    This car looks stunning. I like the short back and the long front. For sure a very cool feeling to sit so much in the front and drive it (that something also the BMW Z3 M had - so much fun to drive).

    Anyway... I think this car is still too expensive!

    Re: Alfa Romeo 8C @ the ring

    I too think the design is stunning with the long bonnet / short tail characteristic to a front-engine 2-seater GT.

    I hope it delivers what the look promises, although I have few doubts it isn't engineeringwise as accomplished as an Audi R8/997S for e.g..
