Is it possible to buy the 159 with 8C metallic red, cause that seems to be the only good looking red colour, out of all other red colours Alfa does. IMO
I've never heard of a GT in 8C Red - Thought GT cloverleaf were blue, black and alfa red.I neard about that 2 years ago. But then they started giving it for free on the GT Cloverleaf models. So it's not a very special paint to apply then is it. Its just Alfa being stupid again.
I thought the expense was due to them having to dismantle the body panels in the Maserati paintshop re-paint them and re-assemble. All sounds like hog-wash to meI've never heard of a GT in 8C Red - Thought GT cloverleaf were blue, black and alfa red.
8C red paintwork requires umpteen coats of various colour paints i think
I don't remember seeing that set of legs hanging out of a Mito in the showroom whenever i've been in. Must be the reason behind the £15k price of the paint.8C Red is an amazing colour in the daylight (showroom lighting does not do it justice at all). Alfa UK have said that we can order any Alfa Romeo in 8C Red with a cost of £15,500 inc vat but nobody has placed an order yet.
We have sold cars with 8C Red paint over the past couple of years but these all came into the UK as promotional cars initially and then sold by Alfa UK via the Cloverleaf Club and some dealerships.
Somewhere in the UK there is at least one of every current model in 8C Red including a 159 TI - all very rare indeed.
The new Alfa Giulietta will be available in the UK with 8C Red Paint as an official option costing around 2,000 Euros (To be confirmed) - this may mean that after the launch of the Giulietta in June we may be able order any model in 8C Red paint with the smaller price tag. We have a number of customers who would pay this price but are not prepared to pay £15,500.
