Mi Amore

Let's all take a moment out of our all-too-busy lives to consider what an exotic super car was like in a different age:

  • Dual overhead cam 8-cylinder, aluminum head and block, 225 bhp.
  • Supercharged
  • All independent suspension
  • 4 speed gearbox integral with differential at rear
  • 19 inch wheels
  • Aluminum sports body
When, sixty-four years, 6 wars, and 12 U.S. Presidents ago, Alfa Romeo created the ultimate 8C2900, the above specifications were obviously pretty wild. Only the Grand Prix cars of the era could offer more in terms of high tech, speed and acceleration. Perhaps the only comparison worth mentioning today is the McLaren F1.

Like the guy on TV says, "do you need a car like this? No, you don't really need a car like this. Do you want a car like this? Oh yeah, you want a car like this."
