Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

The 8C Competizione (production) has a unique platform that shares several components with the Maserati Granturismo and MC Stradale.
The engine was dry sump (disputed – 2 owners manuals point to wet sump, also there is a regular oil dipstick same as on Maserati 4.7).

– Centro Documentazione AR.

Why is this important?
Some claim that 8C Competizione was based on Maserati GranSport, but in fact it wasn’t.

4C/8C unrelated
