It's not often (if ever) I don't care what a car drives like, but this is one such occasion.

It is achingly beautiful too look at and by the sounds of it, listen too.

I'm glad its been made and in some ways I'm glad its not perfect. That makes it a true super car in my book.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

That's what also makes it a real Alfa as well. Gorgeous.

Che bellissima machina!

OK guys, back down to earth.... £180k for an Alfa?!!!!

Siete pazzo?!!!

It's a human reaction. In passing from the view of the 5 series GT to the Alfa 8C, it is like to pass from the view of a pudding to Monica Bellucci...

Buona sera deepheatthemovi.

Aggressively sexual looking. As opposed to the aggressively paranoid appearance of the typical German sportscar (early 911 excepted). Makes any current Aston look as sexy as a wardrobe. The fact that this Alfa is dynamically flawed just adds to the appeal.

Yes...I know.....but £180K?!!!!!!!!

18 February 2009

Well, the car did sell out immediately at a price of 180K... as did the convertible version which followed and was even more expensive. So it would appear that they priced it correctly!
