Alpha Romeo’s 8C Spied

Alfa’s supercar the 8C was spotted testing at the Nurburgring prior to its production unveiling later this year. There have been plenty of shots of this supercar, but these latest photo’s indicate some slight changes to the models that have been seen at the various motor shows.

Main changes are the altered headlamps, which now featuring a more angular housing. There are also changes to air intakes and missing vents on the front wing. The car still looks super cool though.

The 8C will be powered by a 4.7-litre V8 the 8C is anticipated to have 450bhp and 346lb/ft of torque. It will have a two-pedal, paddle-shift set up computerized 6-speed gearbox that should enable to reach 62mph in about 4 seconds. With only 500 being built, this will be a nice toy to have, if you have the appropriate spare change.
