lovely car, i thought the 8c red was only available on the 8c!
Here's an excerpt of one of my (many) emails form Alfa Romeo HQ about the 8C red

the 8C Red is absolutely fantastic! This colour is also not on sale (well a customer could order it if he really really insists but delivery is 3 months longer…). It’s very expensive to produce because it’s a mixture of paint and ink, and it cannot be industrialised, only for a very low volumes of cars. It is hand-sprayed by 10 different people, and has got something like 9 layers. They first start with black, then green, purple, (…) and then I don’t know how but this beautiful and creamy red-bordeaux colour comes out, and gives this amazing depth, almost like a mirror. Then it also need 48 hours drying time.

regards

Mark

I was a lucky git whose name got drawn out of a hat (so to speak) I filled in a form to win one (thinkining I had no chance) when I went to the London Motorshow back in July

The photos don't do it justice. I've seen the 8C in the flesh and the colour is something else...
