    Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione</center>

    Based on the Maserati 4200GT, this carbon-fiber sports car draws upon the Italian marque's rich motorsports history for inspiration, as it looks to set the course for future vehicle design. Even the name refers to racing accomplishments, with "8c" being a signature moniker from the 1930s and 1940s, and "Competizione" paying tribute to the 6C 2500 Competizione, the sports coupe driven by Juan Fangio in the famous 1950 Mille Miglia race. Walking around the red two-seater reveals cues from the 33 Coupe Stradale (front) and Giulia TZ (rear). This show machine boasts more than 400 horsepower from its 4.2-liter DOHC V-8. Routed through a six-speed manual transmission, and put to the pavement via 20-inch tires, this power translates to a claimed 4.5-second 0-60 mph time. Even sitting still, it can cause heartbeats to race.
