"...quite simply the best looking car ever made."
It is rather pity that it doesn't have manual transmission as a option, at least! I must admit, despite all reliability issues, I still have soft spot for Alfas and Ferraris. There is, sorry, there was something magic about them. It is a shame neither of them have manual transmission options any more.
I agree. In defence of the 8C, flappy paddles were the thing at the time and a robotic gearbox is perhaps the only one able to find the legendary Alfa Romeo’s 2nd gear. Anyway, a good old gear lever is something different. There’s this attempt...
Yes, famous (or infamous) Alfettas' 2nd Gear! When we were owning Alfettas, 1.8 litre and 2 litre, my wife gave up "looking" for it and was going from 1st to 3rd!
