8c Competizione Alfa Romeo

Designed and developed at the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, the 8c Competizione prototype pays homage to road racing Alfa's of the 30s and 40s which bore the 8c signature, while 'Competizione' refers to the 6C 2500 Competizione, a car driven by Fangio and Zanardi in the Mille Miglia race of 1950.

8c Competizione Alfa Romeo

The Alfa 8c is a retro design powered by a Maserati V8 engine
Alfa Romeo are well known for producing flamboyant and beautifully styled cars, sometimes overlooking reliability. The 8c Competizione concept takes this philosophy to another level, and is one of the most stunning designs to come from the Italian manufacturer.

The flowing graceful lines of the 8c Competizione are a trait shared with another Alfa concept, the Nuvola. Both cars are inspired and shaped by Alfa Romeo models of the past, and their aesthetic design reflects this retro influence.
