This weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will see a debut for the first production Alfa Romeo 8C Spider. It won’t just be standing on ceremony though; to celebrate their 99th birthday Alfa will be racing the convertible 8C in the famous hill climb event.
The beautiful 8C Spider is a limited edition sports car based on the Alfa 8C Competizione. Its 8 cylinder 4.7 litre engine producing 450 HP, matched to a 6 speed robotic gearbox is good for 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).
The 8C Spider will be joined on the hill by iconic motor racing cars from Alfa Romeo’s historic museum collection in Arese, Italy. These include the 1924 P2 Gran Premio which won the first World Championship in 1925 driven by Gastone Brilli-Peri; the 8C 2300 tipo Le Mans which was purchased by Sir Henry Birkin in 1931; the 6C 3000 CM driven to second place by Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1953 Mille Miglia and the 33 TT 12 which brought the 1975 World Manufacturer’s title to Alfa Romeo.
