Its official- A few hours ago, I posted up the pics (click here: 8c Competizione), now Alfa Romeo came out with an official press release informing us that'll present the production version of its stunning Alfa 8C Competizione Concept at the Paris International Motor Show this month. Alfa's new red blooded thoroughbred is based on the Maserati Coupe using a slightly enlarged version of the same Ferrari based, 4.2 V8 engine, which now has a capacity of 4,7 litres producing 450 Hp and 470 Nm (47,9 kgm) of torque.

Unfortunately, Alfa hasn't released any performance figures yet on it's limited edition coupe but at least we know now that it'll go in production early next year.Finally, it should be noted that Alfa has plans to add a roadster version (based on the concept previewed last year) to 8c Competizione's range in the near future.
