8c competizione(2007) will be a little more expensive than F430(150-156.000 in italy).....only 1000/1500 8c's per year cause the autobody is made from carbon fibers...many collectors have pre-ordered 8c.damoj said:I wonder how many people will really not by a Maserati Spider just because they have an 8C option.
Remember the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione concept car? The V8-powered, carbonfibre-bodied, front-engined supercar everyone said Alfa should build? Now, over two years since the concept was revealed at the 2003 Frankfurt show, it really could happen writes John Simister.
'It is my dream to do it,' said Alfa's recently-arrived CEO, Antonio Baravalle. 'We have cut the budget for our advertising campaign and will do the 8C instead, because it is a perfect way to promote the Alfa brand. Sergio Marchionne [president of Fiat Auto] says if the figures add up, do it.'
The plan is to have a production-standard 8C ready for the Paris show at the end of September, and to take orders for a 500-car production run then. It will be a coupé, like the concept car, but another of Baravalle's 'dreams' is to make a Spider version later.

I don’t have anything with Porsche……I just mentioned what Mb’s president told.Speaking with objectivity Cayenne is a Touareg with restyled front/rear end and different interior…everything else is the same as all the mechanical parts except 2 engines….car body of Cayenne is build in Slovak in the same factory with Touareg and then it is send in Germany for the final assembly…... Cayenne is a travestite Touareg.Porsche whether you like it or not is a company that started from low and nowadays maintains in 911 the architecture of city car and pretends of selling supercars.High profit with low cost…..even it’s last model cayman uses a 10years old frame….Negatives in AR’s history are less than those of hypothetic premium brands like audi,bmw,porsche.Quadrifoglio156 said:Be adult, man. Why you hate Porsche so much ?
Take ma bet - I will buy you new Brera if 8C competizione brake down Porsche in few months ... And don't trust MercBenz people, their cars quality is going down so fast ;-))))
