Alfa Romeo 8C Spider

New: The newest must-have, limited-edition supercar for the (still) filthy rich is one of the thirty-five (of 500) 8C Spider versions of the 8C coupe slated for America. What do we love? The lion's roar of the V-8 (80 percent of its 354 lb-ft of torque is available at 2000 rpm), an amazingly compliant ride, pants-peeing driftability, and massive carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes that keep coming back for more at high speed.
Noteworthy: Take delivery in Italy for an extra $6400, and the ten-member 8C team and Alfa's historic Balocco test track will be at your disposal for the day. Learn to drive from Domenico Martino, have a gourmet lunch, and leave on fresh rubber.

Base Price: $299,000
Specs: 4.7L V-8, 450 hp, 354 lb-ft; rear-wheel drive
