This 8C Competizione Is One Of Just 500 Copies Ever Made

This particular 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is one of the 500 coupes that were produced between 2008 and 2010, and is one of the approximately 90 models that were specifically designated for the US market. 

Its exterior is coated in Nero, which is complemented by its matching leather upholstery. The vehicle is equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 engine that is connected to a six-speed semi-automatic transaxle with a limited-slip differential. 

Additional features include 20" wheels, bi-xenon headlights, carbon-fiber sport seats, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Becker CD stereo, and a Bose sound system. 

The car was originally purchased in Illinois and was later located in Ohio before being acquired by the current dealership in 2023. 

With only 6,000 miles on the odometer, this 8C Competizione is being offered for sale in Florida and comes with the manufacturer's literature, a battery maintainer, correspondence from Museo Storico Alfa Romeo, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Ohio title. 

When The Alfa Romeo 8C Was Born

During the 2006 Paris Motor Show, Alfa Romeo unveiled the 8C Competizione, which was named after the company's eight-cylinder racing cars from the 1930s. 

The vehicle's carbon-fiber body panels incorporate design elements from Alfa Romeo's post-war sporting cars, and it is supported by a steel space frame. 

Out of the 500 Competizione units produced, approximately 90 were specifically designated for the US market, marking the nameplate's return to the market after a 13-year absence. 

This particular model is coated in Nero and features bi-xenon headlights, fog lights, fender vents, bright trim, and quad exhaust outlets. According to the Carfax report, there have been no accidents or damages. 

The car is equipped with silver 20" cloverleaf-designed alloy wheels that are fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires. The stopping power is provided by red Alfa Romeo-branded Brembo calipers over cross-drilled ceramic-composite rotors at all four corners. 

Interior And Technology

Inside the car, there are two carbon-fiber sport seats that are adorned with black leather and red stitching. The same matching upholstery extends to the door panels, while the dashboard and center console are adorned with brushed aluminum and carbon-fiber trim. 

Additional features include a Limited Edition badge located on the center console, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Becker CD stereo, and a Bose sound system. Prior to being put up for sale, several buttons and surfaces were refurbished to address stickiness.
