Need for Speed: Shift
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
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.
The A-Spec style is a Best in Class car that costs 13800. It was released on December 16, 2012 and was the first featured car as part of the Best in Class series.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)
The 8C Competizione appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as a Performance Series racer vehicle, and as an SCPD Highway Patrol unit. The racer variant can only be unlocked through purchasing the Limited Edition release, but the SCPD unit can be unlocked upon accumulating 275,000 cop bounty.
The car is depicted with responsive steering, which is useful for performing drifts. It can hit a top speed of 195 mph (315 km/h) with the use of nitrous. The 8C Competizione is competitive in race events but may be lacking to a few cars such as the Ford Shelby GT500 (2010), acceleration-wise.
