New Alfa Romeo 8C and GTV for 2022. Two new sports cars to form part of Italian firm’s ambitious growth.
Alfa Romeo wants to capitalise on the success of its Giulia and Stelvio with the introduction of seven new models by 2022, and two of these will be sports cars: a Giulia-based GT V and an all-new 8C. The 8C will have a carbonfibre monocoque (hopefully no relation to the 4C’s) and will be powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbo engine plus an electric motor on the front axle, together producing in the region of 700bhp. Good enough, claims Alfa, for a sub –three-second 0-62mph time.
Joining the 8C will be a new two – door GTV coupe, based on the Giulia. With 600bhp, four-wheel drive and room for four, it should give AMG, Audi Sport and BMW M engineers a few sleepless nights. Alfa has also confirmed a new Giulietta hatch for 2022.
