A very slightly used 2009 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider is currently for sale at the Ferrari Maserati dealership in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Sporting only 98-miles on the odometer, this 8C Spider has a $294,900 price tag, not far off from its original $299,000 retail price. Only 500 units of the 8C Spider were produced, with a scant 35 that made it over to the United States.

Powering the 8C Spider is a 4.7-liter V8 powerplant, modified from the Maserati Quattroporte. Sporting 450-hp and 347 lb-ft of torque, the 8C Spider is certainly no slouch but isn’t exactly the breathtaking performance you’d expect from a $299,000 exotic. Thankfully it comes with breathtaking bodywork.

Other features from the 8C Spider are Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and a balanced 50/50 weight distribution. If you’ve had your eyes set on Alfa Romeo’s 8C Spider but couldn’t get your hands on one, here’s your chance.
