Frankfurt auto show: 2008 Alfa Romeo 8CAlfa Romeo is ready to re-enter the U.S. on the tail of this hot ride.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Is it really time for Alfa to come back to the US? Well after a long time gone, Alfa Romeos Eight C is coming to the US to re-launch the brand and it's definitely a hot looking car. It'll move Alfa up market from where we all remember it with cars like the GT V6 and 164 that we were last buying when Alfa put his tail between his legs and went back to Italy. Under the hood will be a 4.7 L V-8 good for 450 hp and that goes out through a six speed electronic manual. The body is like carbon, fiber. 60 mph happens in about four and a half seconds. Out back, a set of fitted luggage and a fitted briefcase is one of those fripperies you can do in a car that costs over two hundred grand. Now out of five hundred made only a hundred will come to the United States officially, but they'll pave the way for future Alfa's that mortals can afford like cars based on the one fifty nine, the Barrera and the Spider, all sold, most likely, alongside Maseratis. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ]
