I'd say the weight mostly.

Regarding the 8C making it into production it's hardly suprising since a production version of the 8C was confirmed for Paris a couple of months ago. Apparently it'll have the new 4.7-litre V8 developped jointly by Alfa Romeo and Maserati, which will push 450bhp at least. Expect prices to rival those of the Ferrari F430.

And the Sprint thing (Alfa Romeo's B-segment Mini fighter) isn't official.

Yes! Another beautiful Alfa Romeo coupe. Isn't it supposed to rival the Porshe 911 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage? Anyway it still looks absolutely fantastic and i hope it will be very fast and have a better build quality than the Alfas of old. Its probably going to be a hit regardless of build quality anyway. It will probably sell on looks alone! Oh it has a new V8 unit! Yay! Even better! I hope it still has that legendary Alfa Romeo enigine noise.

The Brera is to heavy and it just drives like shit if you want to go fast through a corner it understeers and it's just rubbish. I wanted to love it so much but ended up with the biggest automotive dissapointment ever.... Still gorgeous to look at though....

I hope they don't stray too much from the concept design.

Awesome. This car should really help get the Alfa Romeo sells up here in the US.

Plus, she'll be in Test Drive Unlimited as well!
