This week we peal back the covers on one of the most distinguished lines of cars ever produced - the Alfa Romeo. There are only a few car brands and logos in the world that invoke the emotion and recognition that Alfa Romeo does. Its history dates back almost a century to 1910 and is littered with accolades from racing professionals and awards for its technological prowess and unrivalled engineering. Alfa Romeo is not just a company, it is a lifestyle and for many car enthusiasts, an institution. Alfa Romeo will no doubt be a car to watch for on the roads of Oahu this fall with Test Drive Unlimited.

A pure expression of precise engineering, the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003. The 8C Competizione is a perfect model of breathtaking design and performance, boasting 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. This two-seater comes equipped with 4.2 litre V8 (90°) turbo engine with a volumetric compressor. This autumn, when Atari delivers Test Drive Unlimited players can race this awesome machine at top speeds all over Oahu. Meanwhile Alfa Romeo calls their GT coupé a perfect balance of passion and rationality, emotion and safety. Atari simply say “superb.”



Under the hood lurks a luscious 240 horsepower engine with a six-gear manual transmission. Its 0-60 time is 6.7 seconds with top speeds at 150 mph. This is a truly magnificent car to cruise Oahu in!
