First Alfa 8C Competizione arrives in UK

The first of the 41 Alfa 8C Competizione supercars arrived in the UK last week carrying a price tag of £138,500 ($276,646) for the hand-built Italian sportscar. Award-winning architect, Ian Simpson bought the 8C from Alfa’s largest dealership, Mangoletsi, in Knutsford, Cheshire.

Simpson will be the first lucky individual in the UK to push the 4.7 liter V8 engine that produces 450-hp from rest to 62mph in 4.2 seconds.

“This car is truly worth the wait. It”s everything a supercar should be. It”s unmistakably beautiful, it has a distinct engine note and the high performance credentials place it firmly alongside the most exotic cars on the planet. I am delighted and proud to be the first customer in the country to experience this incredible car.”

Yes, we would feel something along the same lines if we had that kind of money too Simpson.
