Lucky prince perhaps, but Berhard this certainly is not... He's been dead for some time.
I do not recognise this prince - must not be spending ehjough time at the hairdresser's reading paparazzi stuff...

Add 'junior' to the name and you've got the prince who bought the 8C.

If I am correct we (NL) will get 10 8Cs. 1 of them is black (for Bernhard jr), 8 of them are red and one of them is white (for Jan des Bouvries). 70 other people who ordered the 8C in NL won't get it

The Prince is not on the picture. The importer (Kroymans) is.

So 8 Dutch people are going to have a better looking car than the Prince

Just a thought but I beleive yellow is the preferred colour of people who have suicidal tendancies!! However it is the only colour to have if you can afford a Ferrari!!!!

True, but 1 / 500 is white

Jan des Bouvries (Dutch designer) only likes white cars and Alfa made an exception for him.

Re: First Alfa 8C in Holland goes to a prince

when they drew up, designed, and inked the concept... im sure it was always in red, actually you can look at the current alfaowner.com banner to further affirm this... heh.

so yes for the 8C.. red is best, black is a nice afterthought..
