Summary:

Good luck finding 280k, then good luck finding an 8c

Faults:

Not much yet, got the car after I graduated high school, so it's been running fine all summer and fall. It being an Alfa, I expect something to go wrong on a long drive back home for school.

General Comments:

The 8c is car porn. Most beautiful car I've ever seen. Turns heads around campus and wherever I go.

Sounds deadly. Deep low rumble with all the little mechanical noises you love to hear.

Fast as hell. 4.7 liter V-8 taken from a Maserati I believe. Coming off the Sierra Denali I drove in high school, this car is an eye opener.

Extremely rare, I want to say only 85 in the states.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
