The 1992 Italdesign Nazca C2 is a concept car that was developed in collaboration between Italdesign and BMW.

Alpina provided the car's 5.7L V12 engine that produces 380 bhp and 385 lb-ft of torque. The Nazca C2 has updated design reminiscing from the original Nazca M12 concept, with Italdesign being responsible for the styling, and the project being spearheaded by the founder, Giorgetto Giugiaro.

An open-top variant known as the Nazca C2 Spider was also developed. A total of three prototype units of the Nazca C2 were produced.[2]

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit

The Nazca C2 appears in the PlayStation release of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit, and is available from the beginning.
