Games

Need for Speed: Shift

The 8C Competizione is included in the downloadable Exotic Racing Series Pack for Need for Speed: Shift. It is featured as a tier 3 vehicle with a 7.80 car rating.

The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione has a decent acceleration and good top speed. Its handling is typical for a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive car; players can exit corners at a high speed as long as the player does not enter the corner at an inappropriate speed. It can be upgraded with a Works conversion kit in both games.

Need for Speed: World

The 8C Competizione was made available in Need for Speed: World through the dealership on January 3, 2012, making it the first car to be released that year.

It initially appeared as a tier 3 vehicle. It was retired on June 23, 2012, but was temporarily featured as a Top-Up gift. On August 22, 2012, it was re-released in the car dealer and featured as an A class vehicle.

The 8C has extremely responsive handling and a lot of traction, making it one of the best handling A class cars, besides the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It has mediocre acceleration and a weak nitrous boost though. Top speed is 216 mph (348 km/h).

The 8C is very useful for difficult race routes, where faster accelerating cars can be outperformed in low-speed corners.
