In late 2003, Alfa Romeo was preparing a return to the North American market and needed a flagship car to remind buyers of the Italian automaker’s glorious past. That September, at the Frankfurt auto show, the world embraced the dramatic reemergence of Alfa Romeo with the reveal of the 8C Competizione concept.

Approved for a limited-production run of 500 units that began in the 2007 model year, just 84 were destined for US shores, and most were pre-sold through Maserati dealerships.

A modern coachbuilt sports car, the 8C features a carbon fiber body formed by the Italian firm ATR Group. The chassis is a hybrid Maserati platform and the F430-derived, 4.7-liter DOHC V-8 engine was assembled by Ferrari. Final construction took place at Maserati’s historic Viale Ciro Menotti factory in Modena, with each example personally vetted by Alfa Romeo factory test drivers in the nearby hills around the Italian city.

The 8C offered here is a rare US-delivery example originally sold by Maserati of Beverly Hills in California. Finished in desirable Rosso 8C Competizione over black leather, the interior is further accentuated with contrasting red stitching and embroidered Alfa Romeo emblems on the seats. Showing less than 1,400 miles at cataloguing, this 8C Competizione has had just one devoted owner from new. Accompanied by its window sticker, factory fitted luggage, tools, and manuals, this is an outstanding example of a sought-after, limited-production Italian supercar.
