10 Alfa Romeo to produce 700+ hp 8C supercar?

Cover for Alfa Romeo to produce 700+ hp 8C supercar?

According to many sources worldwide, Alfa Romeo is reviving the 8C as a mid-engined, all-wheel-drive hybrid supercar, akin to the Acura NSX and, to an extent, the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The engine will produce over 700 horsepower and the reported 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time is less than 3 seconds.

“We know our future depends on staying true to our sports car roots” - Tim Kuniskis, global head of Maserati and Alfa Romeo, said in a statement, “We have learned that when we stay true to Alfa DNA, we can stand out in any segment.”

Alfa Romeo don't have 700 engine. They may have to use straight Ferrari engine. It would make no sense for FCA/Ferrari to develop another TT V8 in parallel with the program they already have with Ferrari.

I am saying "TT V8" because, really, what else could it be these days :D

700HP combined
So I'll bet on Giulia's V6T boosted above 550HP + 150HP electric

If the last 8C is anything to go by, buy it and then watch prices sky rocket.

The TZ3 is a re-bodied viper by Zagato. The only relation to Alfa is the badge.
But there are real Alfas with GM engines. After they discontinued the Busso V6 they installed GM's V6 and put a self made cylinder heads on them.
