The Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione first appeared in 2003 as a concept car, and the 2008 production car is almost identical to the concept.


The 8c is one of the most stunning cars ever created
Based on a modified Maserati Granturismo platform, the visual differences between the production 8c Competizione and the concept version include new door handles, a chrome finish around the side windows, an additional third bulb in the headlights and different alloy wheels.

The attractive shape created by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre makes the 8c Competizione with its two bucket seats unique in the Gran Turismo scenario. The designers have worked hard to ensure that the aerodynamic and performance demands have not altered the carís original concept. The style maintains an incredibly clean shape, uncluttered by any element interfering with the overall harmony.

The solutions introduced on the Alfa 8C to achieve the highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency are not limited to the shape. Air wraps around the car and follows its natural course, unhindered by corners and unevenness. All the pillar and glass surfaces and profiles together with the door mirror shape and position have been optimized by mathematical modeling and also by wind tunnel tests and tests on actual models. Much attention has been devoted to the creation of a ground effect that has allowed a negative lift coefficient to help increase stability at high speed, as on racing cars.

Under the bonnet of the 8c Competizione is a Maserati sourced V8 with a displacement increase from 4.2 litres to 4.7 litres, 450 horsepower and 347 ft/lbs of torque. Special attention has been devoted to the acoustic definition and tuning of the intake and exhaust in order to produce a sound that enhances the 8c Competizione’s character and makes it unmistakable. The result is a full, distinctive exhaust note, emphasized by the permeable intake system and an exhaust system with electronically controlled valves that enhance the car’s sound without infringing any type-approval or environmental constraints. The engine is mated to a six-speed, double clutch, paddle shift transmissions driving the 20" rear wheels.

The Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione's distinctive appearance comes from extensive use of composite materials on the facia and interior panels. This is a technical choice but also reinforces the car’s spirit and emphasizes its personality. The same thinking lies behind the adoption of anatomical seats made out of carbon-fiber that can be adjusted and customized on the basis of the driver’s physical characteristics (a facility previously reserved for racing cars).
