Look what I found at the end of my street

I originally posted this on another alfa site.. thought you guys mike like to see too

Went down to my local Alfa dealer on the weekend and lo and behold.. this, can't believe i've been lusting after it for ages having missed the Geneva motor show.. and it's been walking distance from house all along :banghead:


Gonna EAT YA !!


... bring it home Daddy !!

it's absolutley gorgeous in the flesh.. and a true Alfa !! ie. the door handles seemed to be ABS plastic and felt like they might break off!!
All in keeping with the spirit of the marque though.. And yes, i'd buy it - but there's only 41 allocated to the UK, and they're all sold (****).

Parsons Nose (Green)
SW6 4TH

the green is opposite, leave the kids or GF there.. then a choice of two pubs or Starbucks to discuss how to fund it

Many a BAD decision has been made after a session in the Sloaney Pony ...

I found the same dealership last week. I was just looking to see the current Alfa lineup and had no idea they would have an 8C. I had some coworkers with me (not knowledgeable at all about the 8C) and before I could inquire with the sales rep, they were already half in the car! (yes, we are Americans) To my surprise, the tech manager said, sure go ahead- have a seat if you want. Absolutely noone hovering around us or the car. Here's a pic of yours truly, surely not to be duplicated anytime soon.

Does this mean that the 41 allotted to the UK will have left hand steering? Sorta makes sense for such a limited production car, but still ...

I believe all 8Cs will be LHD, including those destined for RHD markets (eg. UK, Japan, HK, Australia).
