Alfa Romeo 8C Aims Higher Than Ever

By  | 

Although there have long been talks about Alfa Romeo working on the Alfa Romeo 8C model, we have not heard much from Alfa Romeo although some reports are now claiming that they know how much the output of the vehicle will be when it arrives.

Car Magazine reported that the Alfa Romeo 8C, which will come as a mid-engine model, will be fitted with a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 engine, the same engine that the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is powered by right now.

The engine offers about 500hp on the Giulia Quadrifoglio right now but it is believed that Alfa Romeo will be working to push the engine to deliver about 600hp on the 8C. They could also be combining the V6 engine with an electric engine that will bring the total output to 800hp.

To put things into perspective, the Ferrari 488 Pista comes with a 710hp engine. It was also reports about the 8C coming with a carbon fibre platform this time. The Alfa Romeo 8C will most likely come as a limited unit model.
