UK public debut for new Alfa model

Alfa Romeo will showcase its new 8C Competizione sports car for the first time in the UK at this year’s Canary Wharf Motorexpo (June 11-17).

Alfa’s new performance model will have a limited edition run of 500 units. The UK was allocated 42, but they have already been sold through pre-orders.

The all-carbon-fibre 450bhp 4.7 litre V8 powered two-seater is priced at approximately £110,000 and will go on sale this year. An official on sale date is yet to be confirmed.

Christopher Nicoll, managing director of Alfa Romeo UK, said: "This is a perfect example of the new direction for Alfa Romeo on the international stage. "The fact that we long ago sold our UK allocation is testament to our rich heritage of producing emotive and exotic performance cars."
