Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
Constructed at the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, the remarkable Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione concept car is destined to be an authentic brand image, echoing the superb tradition of high performance autos of which the name is a part. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, the '8c' label that is resurrected here was associated with racing and street vehicles equipped with the advanced eight-cylinder engine devised by the renowned engineer Vittorio Jano. On the other hand, the term 'Competizione' is a tribute to the 6C 2500 Competizione, the sports coupe propelled by Fangio and Zanardi in the renowned Mille Miglia race in 1950.
Therefore, '8c Competizione' is not a made-up name, but an obvious reference to Alfa's motor sports history. Notably, the Alfa Romeo legacy was mainly constructed from the successes of its cars in racing events everywhere. The large number of victories is a lengthy, absorbing account of adventures, endurance, engines and state-of-the-art mechanics. The heroes from this hugely valuable combination of technological and human capital, is the factor responsible for today's captivating vehicles, filled with personality and, mainly, the capacity to amalgamate the splendor of the styling with driving pleasure.
