Alfa Romeo confirm two new supercars due in 2022

Alfa Romeo has revealed to its investors and the media that it will launch two new supercars. A new 8C supercar coupe with over 700bhp and a new 600bhp four-seater GTV will arrive in 2022.

The 8C will feature a mid-mounted 700bhp twin-turbocharged V8 that will probably be based on Ferrari’s next V8 engine for the next 488. The cars V8 will be boosted by an electric motor fitted to the front axles, taking the power over 700bhp. The 8C will use a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis to take on rivals like the McLaren 570s and Ferrari 488.

As well as the 8C, Alfa have announced they will launch a new four seater coupe with 600bhp. This all-wheel drive coupe will most likely use the 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 found in the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, but with electrically driven turbochargers to give it 600bhp. The new GT6 will be a direct rival to the AMG 63 and all-new M4.
