Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Any petrol head learns that the true beauty of an Alfa is in the intangibles–things besides dependability, build quality, handling, and performance. In terms of performance the 8C is an exception. Making use of a Maserati-sourced V8, the 8C rockets to 60 in 4.2 seconds, and even pulls 1.02G around the skid pad. But the driving dynamics are all off. The steering is numb, there is tremendous oversteer, and the paddle-shifter gear box is quite possible one of the worst ever constructed. But, as Oscar Wilde said, “All art is quite useless,” and it is for this very reason that the 8C ascends to the status of moving art–more so than even Ferrari–as it is undoubtedly one of the beautiful cars ever constructed.
