alfa delivers first north american 8c competizione

Alfa Romeo has made the first North American delivery of its stunning 8C Competizione to uno dei più grandi collezionisti di automobili al mondo, Jimmy Glickenhaus. Because paying Fiat $3m to upgrade a million-dollar Enzo to 612 P4/5 spec buys you those little perks.

    Overwrought? I beg to differ. Look at just about any Ferrari (other than a few 250 and 275 models in the mid-60s) especially the more recent stuff for examples of overwrought. Comparatively this thing is sex on wheels. --chuck

    Beautiful car, but I have to wonder, how does that door/window setup work? The window comes further back than the doorframe. I'm guessing it's a frameless window that somehow goes down and forward when it's rolling down, but I'm not sure what would happen when you opened the door. Has anyone seen this in the flesh that can comment?
