Alfa Romeo 8C
Alfa Romeo 8C - sports car from the famous Milanese manufacturer Alfa Romeo. The first concept model was presented in 2003 at the motor show in Frankfurt, where he received many enthusiastic reviews and flattering assessments. But Italian experts were in no hurry to serial production models. The final decision on the matter was made only on the Paris Motor Show 2006. The bosses at Fiat gave the nod to its subsidiary for the production coupe Alfa Romeo 8C, the assembly of which began in 2007.
Alfa Romeo 8C got stunning beauty of the body. In the design of a sports car as officers attended the Milan company, and the best experts from Maserati. Together they managed to do something really awesome. Body turned sleek and aerodynamic as possible. It is based on a carbon fiber monocoque. From this a durable and ultralight material also made hood and roof of the Alpha 8C.
It is difficult to compare with something dynamic acceleration and braking of 8C. I did not drive Ferrari yet, but I used to have Maserati for long years ago. But impressive. The process of acceleration in Sport mode is particularly strong feelings - he is accompanied by a bloodthirsty roar of gunfire and the "trunk" of the exhaust system. The machine takes off gently. No frightening backstab - everything is smooth bumps when shifting is hardly noticeable. And if you go quietly, using the gas pedal only a third of its course, would be to show C8 feline habits - motor hums softly, the machine moves softly and gently.
It is worth noting that in the development of many technical units for the car, company Alfa Romeo gained the support of specialists of Ferrari and Maserati. Yet in spirit Alfa Romeo 8C is a creation exactly of Milanese manufacturer.
