Alfa Romeo 8C 2300
The legendary Alfa Romeo 8C was a sports car released in 1931. It was named after its straight 8 cylinder engine and the design was created by Vittorio Jano. It remained in production until 1939 and was Alfa Romeo's main sports model during this timeframe.
The first releases were the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, which derived its name from its motor displacement of 2.3 litres (2300 cc). This version of the car won the Targa Florio race in Sicily and gained the nickname “Monza” after its victory at the Italian Grand Prix.
Jano later enlarged the motor size to 2.6 litres for the Alfa Romeo 8C which gave the car the capacity to achieve 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 7 seconds and a maximum speed of 135 mph (217 km/h).
In 2006, the 8C name was reinstated with the launch of the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and followed in 2008 by the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider.
