    Alfa Romeo has confirmed a new supercar – carrying the name 8C. It’s announced that the 8C – last seen in 2010 as a front-engined V8 coupe – will return as a two-seat, mid-engined model using a carbon fibre chassis, with hybrid-assisted four-wheel drive and a power figure north of 700bhp.

    Yep, Alfa Romeo is going after the likes of the McLaren 720S and Ferrari 488 Pista with its own piece of 700bhp exotica. The new 8C, due by 2022, will combine a twin-turbo engine (most likely a development of the Giulia Quadrifolgio’s 2.9-litre V6) with a front axle-mounted electric motor.

    Alfa has confirmed its new 8C flagship will be capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in less than three seconds… and that wading into hybrids isn’t just a supercar party piece.

    To bad they haven't done a 6C, a version of the 4C with the Quadrofoglio V6. That would have been a killer.

    The writer of the article doesn't understand how Alfa Romeo names things though. 4C stands for four cylinders, 8C stands for 8. So, it won't be the V6 they think, most likely the full version of the Ferrari V8 that's in the California.
