Originally revealed at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, it’s easy to see why this Italian car grabbed plenty of attention from the press and public. The Rosso Competizione three-layer metallic paint really flaunts each nip and tuck in this carbon-fiber body, which was styled to be both muscular and sophisticated. The Quadrafoliio fender shield has been painted on the body. Marchio Sportivo wheels add a cool modern touch to the exterior.

This Alfa Romeo is more than just a pretty face. Under the hood sits a hard-hitting aluminum 4.7-liter V8 engine with 450-horsepower and 347 lb.-ft. of torque on tap. A 6-speed transmission with paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel provides super quick and unbelievably smooth gear transitions. You’ll find handling to be tight and responsive, while carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes provide consistently amazing stopping power. All that is necessary, considering the top speed is 190 mph.

Italians make some of the finest automotive interiors on the market, as clearly demonstrated in this 8C Competizione. The black color scheme is strategically broken up by grey and carbon-fiber trim pieces as well as red accent stitching on the seats. Everything from the steering wheel to the gauges and switchgear has been designed for ease of use, so you as the driver can focus on savoring the roadgoing experience.

If you choose this car, which is a tremendous standout even in Rand Luxury’s impressive selection of vehicles, you’ll be receiving 1 of just 80 Alfa Romeo 8C Competiziones sent to North America. The original factory luggage sold with the car, still in its original wrapper, will be included in the sale. Contact Rand Luxury to discuss details.
