Alfa Romeo 8C: Won’t Hold Back On The Power

By  | 

Talks about Alfa Romeo looking to build a new 8C model has been going on for some time now. It was reported that the vehicle might be entering the market as a hybrid supercar and we might have the details on how much the 8C will be offering in terms of power when it finally arrives.

Car Magazine reported that the Alfa Romeo 8C will be coming in with a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 engine. The same engine that the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is using right now. The 8C will also be given the carbon fiber platform.

We know that the engine on the Giulia Quadrifoglio was offering about 500hp but Alfa Romeo could tune it so that it offers close to 600hp. The engine will then be paired with an electric engine that would bring the numbers up to 800hp.

It all sounds possible on paper but we will have to wait and see if Alfa Romeo can really do it. The Alfa Romeo 8C will be entering the market as a limited model but we still do not know how many Alfa Romeo plans to build.
