We’ve already shared the videos of The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah taking a spin in Petrolicious founder Afshin Behnia’s Alfa Romeo Duetto and GTV 2000, but now Farah has shared the video we’ve all been waiting for in which he drives Behnia’s Alfa Romeo 8C.
The 8C is a bit of an oddball – even for an eccentric automaker like Alfa Romeo. It’s based on the Maserati GranTurismo’s platform, but is decidedly more performance-oriented with a full carbon-fiber body and a 450 horsepower version of Maserati’s 4.7-liter V8. Just 500 units were built, with some going to high profile owners such as Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne and Fiat owner John Elkann.
Jeremy Clarkson once reviewed the 8C and said it drove less than stellar. Farah was determined to get the truth on the 8C’s driving dynamics, however, so be sure to hear what he thought about the Italian coupe in the video embedded above.
