That would have been me in the car we had for sale. She is sadly sold and being delivered this week. Luckily I still have an 8C Spider of my own but it was nice to get the pair together from time to time.

Hedingham castle on Sunday - not quite decided yet.

Who ever owns it, it was bloody lovely.

I was heading in the other direction and there was quite a lot of traffic, so I only saw it for a second but I really, really want one.

If the owner reads this and fancies a straight swap for a black, '99 V reg, GTV twinnie, please PM me.

GQV, metallic red, 2012

Caught a glimpse of a red 8C at the roundabout where the B386 Holloway Hill meets the A320 close to St Peter's Hospital by Chertsey a few minutes after 8pm yesterday (8/3).

Made my evening - 1st time I have seen a 8C on the road!

Yaay!! That was us. we were on our way back from Italian night at the Ace Cafe.
We only live half a mile away from where you saw us, so I'm surprised you havent spotted us before. We are often out and about on a nice day, especially on Tuesdays, thursdays and Sundays. Do you live locally?

I live in Ashford, but a close friend of mine (my best man in fact) lives in Lyne. It was a "boys'" curry night and I was on driving duties, we were on our way to Addlestone and he was my last collection. If you caught a glimpse of a blue Brera that was me.

GT 3.2 Q2 & Fiesta

Well On M25 this evening between Heathrow and Gatwick heading anti clockwise and moved to the inside lane due to congestion and there she was.... A lovely red one! So we overtook in the GT and got their attention. Then we waited for them to overtake, then we did, etc. etc. and when they finally gave it some beans and flew past us with the windows down, my little daughter was well impressed! unfortunately traffic prevented anymore communicating. Boo hoo! but good to see one on the road, such a pretty front end

I spotted a black 8C tonight, southbound on the M1. It was on trader plates so probably not the owner but it still sounded epic. I could hear it 10 cars in front of me. I've seen Mariopav's at the Ace Cafe but for some reason in the traffic we were sat in it seemed tiny and bleded in a little bit. You could tell who was an Alfa fan or petrolhead as they we're the people paying any attention to it.
