The first Alfa 8C Competizione destined for the US market has arrived in Connecticut on November 26, 2008. The handover ceremony took place at "Miller Motorcars” where the owner picked up the glamorous car: his name is James Glickenhaus and he is one of the greatest car collectors in the world.

The American collector, James Glickenhaus, receives his Alfa Romeo 8C from Renzo Barbirato, responsible of the project 8C.

Glickenhaus declared himself particularly proud of being the first American customer to receive an Alfa Romeo. Immediately after the official handover of the keys, the customer carried out a road test in order to appreciate the main technical and dynamic features of his Alfa 8C Competizione.

With a limited production of five hundred units, the supercar has been designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo (the Alfa Romeo Style Centre) and is remarkable for its moulded surfaces that are the ideal attire for Alfa Romeo’s engineering and mechanical excellence: a slender line that expresses all the beauty of a veritable piece of poetry in motion that harks back to the brand's glorious past while also carrying forward its attributes of engineering and emotion into the future.

The Alfa 8C Competizione is equipped with a mighty 4.7 litre 8 cylinder engine that develops 450 bhp, teamed with a 6 speed robotised gearbox and immediately turns heads due to its unmistakable Italian elegance, an absolutely unique and unrepeatable style that promises the satisfaction of a sporty drive with full respect for Alfa Romeo tradition.

The other 84 examples of the Alfa 8C Competizione destined for US clients will have been delivered by the end of the year.
