the alfa romeo is back…sort of

10 07 2008

For all of you who were wondering what happened to the popular Fiat owned Alpha Romeo, you may be interested in knowing that it is on it’s way back to the US in the form of the 8C Competizione. Only this time it is on steroids (these bad boys pack a 450 hp V-8 and top out at 190 mph) and wearing a lot more bling. Plans are to have about 90 to 100 of the shipped Stateside for about $250,000 a pop. Chump change, I know. However for those of you who do have cash like that to throw at this Italian legend, you will have to wait. Rumor is that all of them are already spoken for. As for the rest of us, we will have to wait for the more affordable models – Brera, Junior, and C Segment Hatchback- to arrive in 2010.
