Autotrader Find: 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione for $349,000

Although many people may not remember it, Alfa Romeo once sold a supercar here in North America. It was called the 8C Competizione, and it was absolutely beautiful — and, unfortunately, it was sold in tremendously small numbers to a small sliver of buyers. Occasionally, one still comes up for sale on Autotrader.

This particular 8C is an absolute gem: it’s a coupe, finished in the car’s best colors — red with a beige interior — and it’s traveled just 1,887 miles from new. It’s currently offered by Ferrari South Bay in Torrance, California, south of Los Angeles, for $349,000. That’s huge money — but then, the 8C is a very special car, and this is likely one of the best-preserved 8C models.

For a little 8C refresher, the car was sold in the late 2000s and offered in coupe or convertible forms. The styling was gorgeous, but production was indeed tight: Alfa built just 500 coupes and 500 convertibles, called the 8C Spider, for the entire planet. The powertrain was a 4.7-liter V8 with 444 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, and the top speed was around 180 mph.

Although the 8C’s performance numbers aren’t much by today’s supercar standards, its gorgeous styling and small production run keep it highly collectible. This particular 8C is said to be one of just 84 examples sold into the U.S. market, and the Carfax report shows that it’s a one-owner car sold new in Beverly Hills and rarely driven. It’s big money, of course, but it’s also a very special car. Find an Alfa-Romeo 8C Competizione for sale

  1. Even if you buy this and drive it around a bit it will still depreciate less than any other Alfa. 

    The new Alfa Romeo’s have terrible resale. Held me back from buying one.
