FCA Is Selling A Brand New Alfa Romeo 8C Spider

The Alfa Romeo 8C Spider isn’t as sensuous as the 8C Competizione, but it’s extremely rare as production was limited to 500 units.

Used models occasionally pop up for sale, but FCA Heritage is offering a brand new 8C Spider from 2010. The company didn’t say much about the car, but confirmed it has “never left the factory” and only has a “few kilometers” on the odometer.

That’s pretty impressive by itself, but the car has also been “suitably restored” by FCA Heritage and is now up for sale through its Reloaded by Creators program. The company didn’t mention pricing, but noted the model has a 4.7-liter V8 engine that produces 444 hp (331 kW / 450 PS) and 347 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque. It is paired to a robotized six-speed transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in approximately 4.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h).

If you’re not a fan of the roadsters, you’re in luck as FCA Heritage is also offering an 8C Competizione. This particular model was built in 2007 and has never left the company’s hands. It features the same powertrain as the 8C Spider and it too appears to have been given a light restoration.

Pricing for the coupe also remains unclear, but both models are likely worth a small fortune given their rarity, low mileage and ownership by FCA. Regardless of how much they cost, the 8C Competizione originally stickered for $265,000 while the 8C Spider began at $299,000.

    Alfa should put that front fascia on everything they make. Why mess with a good thing.

      They did it with the MiTo and Giulietta. No one was impressed.

        And 4C.

      It doesn’t translate well to regular cars.

    Literally a Ferrari in a beautiful, more low key (compared to well, a Ferrari) suit… And brand new with limited production numbers, I mean, what’s not to like!

      It’s technically more Maserati than Ferrari.

      • europeon

        It’s technically 100% Maserati.

          The Maserati cars are made at the Ferrari factory, so same thing

          • europeon

            No, they’re not. Maserati has its own factories, and the 8C (just like the 4C) was built in Maserati’s factories.

            All three companies are owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, formerly Fiat S.p.A. under whom the engine sharing program was organized. Starting with the 2013 Maserati Quattroporte GTS, and following with the 2014 Ferrari California T, the F136 is being replaced by the new twin turbocharged Ferrari F154 V8 engine.

            Bro… wtf are you talking about? The engines are one thing, the factories and the cars are a completely different one.

    Ugly wheels, but a beautiful car.

      Ugly wheels!? What a sad troll you are…

        You need to double-check your meds dosage.

        And you need new eyeglasses.

          Talking to the mirror again?

  • drc

    These Alfas are such great-looking cars, but they are oh-so-small they are a non-starter for many. Had then made them about 20% larger overall would be a real contender. I drive a Porsche 911, but can’t even fit into these Alfas…..

    • europeon

      You must be talking about the 4C. The 8C is really roomy inside

  • Aajaxx

    If I sold everything, I could actually buy the coupe and afford the upkeep. Do you think I could live in it?

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Just lovely sigh

  • Emoto

    I’ve always loved how Alfas look. I suspect that I will never own one, but I can still enjoy looking.

  • KAG25

    300K is a good price for many fast cars, but this is good looking.
