By  | 

There have long been talks about Alfa Romeo possibly working on an Alfa Romeo 8C model that will be coming in as a hybrid supercar model and now we are hearing more about what the vehicle will be offering in terms of performance when the vehicle arrives.

Car Magazine reported that the Alfa Romeo 4C will be coming in as a mid-engine model. Powering it will be a 2.9-liter twin turbo V6 engine, the same engine that the Giulia Quadrifoglio is offering right now.

The engine currently offers about 500hp but could be pushed to deliver about 600hp. On top of that, it is said that Alfa Romeo could add an electric engine to push the combine numbers to 800hp when the 8C arrives. With vehicles like the Ferrari 488 Pista offering about 710hp right now, we can see how far Alfa Romeo plans to go with the 8C.

It is said that the 8C will also come riding on the carbon fiber platform.
