Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is true automotive beauty

Truly one of the most beautiful cars of the modern era, the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione rides on an chassis borrowed from Maserati.

Under that sexy, long hood sits a 4.7-litre V8 designed and built by Ferrari/Maserati. All up it sends 331kW (443hp) of power and 480Nm (354lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels via a limited-slip diff and an automated 6-speed manual gearbox.

20-inch wheels help keep the 8C in contact with terra firma. The 8C is able to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 292km/h (181mph).
