Italia a Zandvoort
Other angle on this car.
During the event, I saw almost a dozen 8C's including a few Spider versions of this beautiful car.
Production of the 8C Spider began in 2009, in Modena, with Maserati in
charge of building the cars.
As previously announced, 500 cars will be built, each priced at €175,000 (US$241,000) excluding taxes.
The production version was unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
35 of 500 Spiders are going to United States.
Alfa Romeo claims that the 8C Spider's top speed is 295 kilometres per
hour (183 mph), which makes it slightly slower than the coupe version.
The brakes on the Spider are Brembo carbon-ceramic units.
The Spider has a two-layer electrically operated fabric roof.
The windshield frame is made of carbon fiber to try to maintain a 50/50 weight distribution.
