At long last, Alfa Romeo has confirmed the European pricing for its halo supercar, the achingly gorgeous 8C Competizione, with an MSRP of €159,300.

As Alfa Romeo previously announced, 99 examples of the total production run of 500 will be reserved for customers in the United States, where the 8C will be leading the company's return to the American market. While US Dollar pricing has yet to be announced for those 99, consider for reference that the €159,300 European price tag positions the 8C slightly below its corporate cousin, the Ferrari F430, which retails on the Continent for €175k.

While it was predicted that the 8C Competizione would be priced at closer to €135k, we doubt the higher sticker will keep Alfa Romeo from selling each and every one – and the subsequent run of topless Spider versions – or speculators from demanding significantly more for the privilege of buying what is arguably the most beautiful car ever to grace tarmac.

      Price is really irrellivent when it comes to a car with such captivating looks, Alfa could really ask whatever it wants as far as i'm concerned.

      It's too darn pretty. You want to drive it, but you don't want to damage it either. What a torturous situation to be, but a desirable situation one if you are 'lucky' enough to own this car.
