An Alfa that’s a good investment? Surely some mistake? Not at all especially when we can arrange the Alfa Romeo car insurance for you.
The Alfa Romeo 8C shares its ethos with the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900(b), which raced at Le Mans. Its streamlined body gave it a notable advantage over the open-topped competition, before – you guessed it – mechanical problems forced it to retire.
Cloaked in carbon fibre, this latest interpretation of the Alfa 8C has exclusivity (only 500 have been built), good looks and impressive performance figures (0-60mph in 4.5secs and a 181mph top speed) on its side. Oh, and a growling 450bhp 4.7-litre V8.
With its ideally configured running-gear – engine mounted behind the front axle and gearbox at the rear – the 8C should also handle. Still, the 8C’s low production run and all that heritage means, remarkably, this is an Alfa that makes sound economic sense, with used cars currently being offered for £130k, £20,000 over the original list price.
The world, it seems, has found a modern Alfa Romeo that’s a better investment than a Ferrari or an Aston. As to whether it’s a better car or not, that would be another question entirely, but you can still ask us her at Keith Michaels to arrange the best Alfa Romeo car insurance for you.
