Alfa has also unveiled the convertible version of its arresting 8C Competizione sports car.

The 8C Spider shares the same engine as the Coupé, a 4.7-litre V8 that produces 450bhp. All that power reaches the wheels through a Formula-One-style six-speed paddle-shift gearbox.

The car has a fabric roof, which is deployed electrically by touching a button on the dashboard, and the roof can be personalised in various colours to suit the car's body colour.

Prices haven't been revealed, but the Coupé costs £110,000, so it will be considerably more than that.

In any case, it's probably academic – Alfa Romeo is making only 500 8C Spiders, and, if the Coupé is anything to go by, they will probably be sold out before it goes on sale.

Why it's a highlight: Sheer style; desirability; the fact its already sold out.
