Think Alfa should take it on and build it as a proper car, rather than just a conversion jobby.

Yes.. Alfa adopt it and make it an official model. Since the engineering is more or less all done, it's a no-brainer.

Plus I don't like the idea that you have to cut up an 8C to make one..

well they only made 500 odd 8C's so why not do another small run on another beautiful car which is basically the same engineering but a different body?

It would cost next to nothing for them to start production

They have to homologate it as it's different to the real 8C ?

Yeah but.. it'll just cost the same as the 8C, since the "stuff" is essentially the same price, even if it looks Disco rather than 8C shaped.
