We've all known it's coming, and we half expected to see it on the show stand in Frankfurt, but at least now we've got confirmation. Alfa Romeo will be putting a convertible version of the oh-so-delectable 8C Competizione on sale in 2009. The standard fixed-roof car went on sale this month in Europe with a price tag of €165,000, and the cabrio version will command a €20,000 premium on top of that. The concept above was originally shown in Pebble Beach in 2005.

Alfa is limiting production of the coupe to 500 units, and it's expected that the Spider will have a similar run.

      Alfa is back baby ! This car shows that Alfa still has some of that fire coursing through their veins... hopefully we will see a lot more of this kind of car coming from Alfa in the future... If I had the money I would definitely buy one... Black with red leather interior please (unoriginal, but it looks sooo good).

      Wow ... that is just gorgeous. Amazingly designed....but the price is seems to be in the stratosphere. The younger generation probably doesn't even know what an alfa is and the older ones remember all of the electrical problems these things had. Could be a tough sell on our shores.

      Beautiful, beautiful, but way too expensive. Give me something that's more like a Miata, but with a two liter engine that "sings."
