The 8C Competizione Spider is likely to stay a concept unlike its coupe cousin. what a concept. First at the Pebble Beach Concours where it was part of Alfa special display as the featured for the 2005 show, it stunned the

Alfa Romeo’s in-house team promised us a Spider at the end of the unveiling of the 8C Competizione coupe, and with this design have managed to deliver a spider while keeping the lines of the original 8C competizione.

The was to have carbon fibre and to be powered by the Maserati derived, tweaked, 400 bhp V8 engine, mated to a 6 manual gear box powering the wheels. Performance should be than adequate with in around 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. Suspension will be 1 style double wishbones all with 245/40 R20 front and very meaty 275/35 on the rear.

It’s always nice to

It was officially announced that Romeo will build the 8C spider. Fiat group CEO Marchionne gave us the news at a investors meeting in New York, the will be around ВЈ120,000 and it be available to the lucky 500 sometime in The spider will share a lot of with the Coupe but will be 100 kilos heavier, this give it a 0-60 time will be sub 4 seconds and the top speed be just shy of 190mph.

Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Well Alfisti, you are amongst the to know the 8C competizione spider is now to purchase, remember you heard it first, however you can expect the tag to be on the high side of ВЈ120,000 and as yet we know the exact spec, but we it to be the same 4.7 litre V8 engine 450 bhp. This will be mated to the same paddle gear box and it is likely to be made lashings of carbon fibre, It is highly probable that will only be 500 of these made and unless you are extremely they will all be sold days, all the 8C Competizione’s were for years before the cars even produced.

Update 20/02/08:

Having read the press release, is in slightly interesting English, I can now you a bit more information on the 8C Spider. The are producing 500 cars and it will at the 2008 Geneva motor It is a steel sub frame with body work as expected and the work has been designed so is no lift at high speed, has been done by very design of the undertray, which was modelled.

The hood of the spider is electro and is operated by a button on the dashboard, the is lined and comes in a variety of and has been designed to be both pleasing. easy to use and very at the high speeds the 8C will The interior has the same style as the coupe and these are made in fibre with leather and the seats are tailor made for the of the car and can be chosen in a variety of colours and you can choose what colour you want.

The engine is the same 4.7 litre V8 the coupe uses and it produces 450 bhp at rpm with 80% of the torque available 2000 rpm, this is to the paddle shift gear box in the of the car by means of a torque tube and the six gearbox then feeds the to a self locking differential. The tube helps to reduce the of twist that the engine to the body of the car and this in turn with the handling of the car, the transaxle gearbox at the rear of the car helps with the weight of the car. should all this prove to be to much for the rear there is an anti skid which helps bring back under control and if you get it wrong there is also own Vehicle dynamic control to help sort things out for

Braking is by carbon ceramic brakes with massive disks on the front and 360mm on the rear these are complimented by block brake calipers are machined out of a single billet of for extra rigidity in order to you more feel. The suspension is of forged aluminum to reduce weight and the car has massive 20 inch with 245/35 tyres on the and 285/35’s on the rear.
