To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Amelia Island event, 6 - 7 March 2020. Estimate:$280,000 - $320,000 Formerly of Doug Magnon’s Riverside International Automotive MuseumAttractively optioned; just 3,650 miles from newOne of 500 examples, only 84 US-specification The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione spawned a new era for Alfa Romeo in the 21st century. Alfa Romeo, who were then manufacturing hatchbacks and sedans, first debuted the 8C concept at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. After three years of development, the production version made headlines at the 2006 Paris Motor show, answering the calls of every enthusiast since the golden era of Alfa Romeo.Wolfgang Egger of the Alfa Romeo Style Center designed the 8C with absolute beauty and power in mind. The distinctive design remains forward-thinking and offers a glimpse into the design language of the future while retaining the DNA of the great Alfa Romeos of the past. The inspiration was derived from such post-war greats as the 33 Stradale and Giulia TZ. The 8C’s unmistakable grille and badge, accentuated by a cluster of beautiful bi-xenon headlights, presents as one of the most gorgeous Alfa Romeos produced.The Alfa Romeo’s attractive looks are further enhanced by its exceptional performance. The 8C is powered by a Ferrari/Maserati–derived all-aluminum 4.7-liter V-8 engine that produces 450 hp at 7,000 rpm and 347 foot-pounds of torque at 4,750 rpm. The engine is mated to the same transmission used in the Ferrari 599 Fiorano, known as the “Superfast” gearbox, a computer-controlled six-speed manual transaxle with a computer-controlled twin-disc clutch. The transmission is placed in the rear for better handling, which is complemented by a front and rear dual-wishbone suspension setup.This 8C Competizione was previously in the Riverside International Automotive Museum, where it was part of Doug Magnon’s extensive collection of sports and racing cars. While in Magnon’s collection, it was used occasionally and kept in pristine condition before the collection was sold in 2016. Today the odometer reads approximately 3,650 miles, and the car remains in excellent condition throughout. Optioned with extremely attractive Competition Red metallic paint, red brake calipers, custom fitted luggage, factory floor mats, and full-grain black braided leather with red stitching, this 8C is an extremely attractive example and has been carefully maintained over the years. Included with the car is the window sticker, assorted paperwork, and owner’s manuals. The 8C Competizione is recognized as being one of the best-designed sports cars of its era and looks just as good today as it did in 2008.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
