Now the 8c Spider will join
a truly mouth watering line up of Alfa Romeos at Pebble Beach. These will include the three famous, futuristic-looking, Bertone-created BAT concepts (BAT 5, BAT 7 and BAT 9)
which will be seen together for the first time since
well as the Alfa Romeo G1 - the first car to bear the
Alfa Romeo name - which is being shipped in from its
Beach organisers revealed today that the Alfa Romeo 8c
Spider would be appearing, although their release gave
very little away. "Derived from the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, the 8C Spider is purely and essentially a
thoroughbred sports car in the traditional Alfa Romeo
spirit; it offers sophisticated engineering, a sporty
yet elegant shape, and strictly two-seat accommodation,"
the statement read. It continued, "Created at the Centro Stile Alfa
Romeo, the 8C Spider expresses all that is most precious
in the company’s heritage.
"The low and aggressive front or the
face of the car is characterised by the classical Alfa
Romeo triptych—the central triangular “scudetto” flanked
by horizontal “moustaches.” The lateral view of the car
underscores its compactness and its classical mechanical
layout, with longitudinally, front-mounted engine and
rear-wheel-drive. The car is sure-footed on its
prominent wheels, placed in the four corners. The “coda tronca” short tail with generous round taillights,
typical for an Italian sports car, adds to the
purposeful, dynamic image of the 8C Spider.
"The interior design reflects the
same philosophy; the cockpit’s non-compromised
ergonomics, style, and choice of materials concentrate
on one goal only: the ultimate driving pleasure," the
press release concluded.
