Alfa Rome 8C Spider – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you're hoping to get your hands on an Alfa 8C Spider, well... take a number, because really – who doesn't? The open-air version of the highly coveted – and almost universally admired – 8C Competizione, the 8C Spider is a product of pure demand. But with only 500 examples set to be produced and just 35 of those destined for American shores, only a handful of eligible parties will get them. And those Yanks who are lucky enough to do so do will have to pay at least $299,000 for the privilege.

That list price alone – confirmed to Autoblog courtesy of Maserati North America (which is handling the model's distribution) – makes the 8C Spider the most expensive production Alfa ever. But with demand far outstripping supply, you can bet most of them will be trading hands at far higher prices than that – at least in the short term. That's is no mean feat considering present economic conditions.

      1 Leg, 1 Arm, 1 kidney, part of my liver, my first born, and my soul... that's what I'd give for that car.

      A $150k nice. But definitely not $300k nice!

      Even at such limited edition, this car will not hold its value!

      Lucky Americans! It's 440.000 dollar in Holland. Flipping taxes!

      Perhaps the most gorgeous Alfa since the Duetto, which Dustin Hoffman drove in that movie with Mrs. Robinson. In red, of course.

      This car is the definition of lust. And, damn it, can't get near one! (...for a few hundred thousand reasons)
      • 6 Years Ago
      How much?!

      The 8C is horrible to drive with a roof - this I can only imagine will be a whole world of pain worse!

      Still, it ain't exactly ugly :)
