According to the Italian magazine Quattroruote, Alfa Romeo will produce the magnificent 8C Spider that appeared for the first time at the 2005 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Five hundred are scheduled to be built from 2008 and sold at €180,000/$245,000/£120,000.
Derived from the current 8C, the spider version will inherit the Ferrari/Maserati-derived 4.7-litre V8, which has an output of 450 hp/443 bhp.
Originally the spider version was not planned by the Italian carmaker but built upon the request of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance organizers. The latter intended to display the last G1 1921 and the incredible Bertone BAT concepts and thought that a modern Alfa car with the same pedigree would be an ideal addition to the set.
