      4C's don't have chrome trim. There were two 4C's and an 8C there. They look a lot alike except the 8C is longer and has some chrome trim. 4C lists at $72k and the 8C sold for about $250k ten years ago when it was new.

      • The 8C is also one of the most beautiful designs in the 21st century and has a 4.7L Ferrari / Maserati V8 making just under 450 HP.
        Kinda worth mentioning, no?

          Post deleted after sadly learning the the 8C had a flappy-paddle, no clutch pedal automatic transmission, like the 4C . . .

          2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
          1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
          2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)
          2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

            Shame on me being a long time Italian car fan and muti-time Ferrari owner to not notice there were 2 different cars. I just saw the trim. I have seen neither car in person but by that picture I like the 4C better.

            Hey now that you have a track ding lets put harnesses and such in there and make a dual use trackcar.

            • Are you challenging me to build a roll bar / cage for a Carbon chassis?

                This is the first 8C I've seen in person. I like the 4C better simply because I own one. The 8C is a marvelous looking car. He did some parade laps at lunch time. I bet it handled well. He was taking nice lines.

                You read my mind. The 4C is my daily driver, if I do to much track prep it won't be a usable DD. I need to get serious on the 240Z project. For the cost of the 4C repair, I could buy two turn-key race prep track cars.

                  Hmm, no. Well, maybe.

                  I need a cage in both of my 240Z cars. Both are in Northridge. PM me your phone please.

                    Yes but they would not be as cool as a 4C. Who said something like life is too short for bad wine or slow cars.

                    • I finally found the time to edit some track film. This is me chasing Brandon. We're both driving the new Alfa Romeo 4C. Sunday, third Alfa practice.
