Someone Turned A Maserati Coupe Into An Alfa Romeo 8C - Any Takers?

We’ve seen our share of more or less convincing replicas offered for sale, but this 2002 Maserati Coupe turned into an Alfa Romeo 8C must be the only one in existence.

There is a connection between the two, as the 8C Competizione was actually manufactured by Maserati on a modified 4200/GranTurismo platform. Even its 4.7-litre V8 was derived from Maserati (albeit assembled by Ferrari), but from there to actually thinking the 8C is a 4200/Gran Turismo in drag is a long way.

According to the seller, this vehicle’s “professionally executed stunning interpretation of classic Alfa 8C Competizione” was done by him. The modifications include new round stop lights, as well as reverse and rear fog lights), 8C Competizione badges to attest the its authenticity, Alfa Romeo Brera rims and 8C styled fender scoops.

In the ad, featured on PistonHeads.com, the seller says the car is in perfect mechanical condition. It had its oil changed regularly every 5,000 miles (8,046 km), gearbox oil and antifreeze changed annually, benefits from a new set of brake pads, and so on.

The reason he is parting with it? “Nine SP-30 points forces reluctant sale”, he claims, which means he has exceeded the speed limit on public roads. The clock reads 97,000 miles (156,000 km) and the asking price is £15,950 ($20,122).
