First Alfa 8C Competizione Hits U.S. Shores

After nearly 14 years and numerous rumors of a return, Alfa Romero has returned to the United States. Leading the charge is a fleet of 85 8C Competizione's with the first having just been delivered to James Glickenhaus in Connecticut.

The beautiful 8C Competizione is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine which produces 450 bhp and 470 Nm of torque. It comes equipped with a 6 speed paddle-shifted gearbox, 20-inch tires, and a carbon-fiber body.

Production is limited to 500 units, and the remaining 84 individuals in the US who have already ordered one should receive their new car by the end of the year. Those unfortunate enough to miss out on the chance of owning the 8C Competizione might want to look into ordering the 8C Spider which is also limited to 500 units.
