The 8C Competizione was launched in 2008, a synthesis of the new “Alfa Romeo philosophy”, the marque’s strategy to reaffirm its uniqueness and ability to bring together emotion, engineering and aerodynamic efficiency and the exaltation of driving pleasure.

From the concept car to the version produced in just 500 examples, just a very few modifications were made by the "Centro Stile" at Arese; this supercar struck an immediate chord and relaunched the image of the marque among the world’s most important collectors. This success was to be repeated with the 8C Spider – also produced in a limited series – which the Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson defined as the world’s most beautiful car.

The Supercars series could hardly not feature a title dedicated to these two bespoke Alfas. Ample space is dedicated to the history and stylistic evolution of the two models, including an examination of the original Frau interior trim specifications.

There are also chapters devoted to the technical history of the cars and the driving impressions of those who have tested them on track.

The book comes with a foreword by Carlo Di Giusto, journalist of the Italian magazine 
Quattroruote (Four Wheels) and leading expert on driving and road tests of both small cars and supercars

The particularly rich illustrations have largely been drawn from the archives of the magazine 
Quattroruote.

Writer and journalist, Ivan Scelsa held the position of editor-in-chief for the Italian periodicals La nostra pianura and Tribuna Magazine, for which he also edited the web format T-Motori. It includes collaborations with the newspapers Il Giornale and l'Eco di Bergamo, as well as Tutto PorscheAuto Digest & ClassicJust Men Motors & Lifestyle and Il Quadrifoglio. Curator of various narrative anthologies, he is president of the "CinemAlfa" Association with which he follows the selection of historic cars for films and movies. He was also a driver and actor, assuming the role of executive producer in the short film "Pizza Marconi" presented at the Cannes Film Festival, the Globe in Rome and the Locarno Film Festival. For Giorgio Nada Editore in the series “The cars that made history” he published Alfa Romeo 156 (2021) and Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider (2022).
