The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is a sports car produced by Italian marque Alfa Romeo between 2007 and 2010. It was first presented as a concept car at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. The name refers to the eight-cylinder (cilindro in Italian) engine (8C) and Alfa Romeo’s racing pedigree (Competizione, Italian for ‘competition’).
