As recently as last week, we had 99 Americans all excited about becoming potential owners of the new Alfa 8C Competizione. But Automotive News says the Italians will only ship 90 copies of the gorgeous $200,000 two-seater over here after everyone else in the world has gotten theirs.

So, according to Automotive News, we're still getting the biggest allotment, with Germany and Italy getting 80, Japan 70, France and the UK 40, and Switzerland 35. That leaves 65 cars tagged as "other."

Maybe you nine Americans who got left out can find out where those "others" are going and offer a serious premium. Then again, there's always next year. And eBay.

Those of us who never had any hope of affording one, might get some consolation from our gallery of photos.
