How do you make the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione even more awesome? Trim a little off the top. Debuting at the Geneva auto show next month, the drop-top Alfa Romeo 8C Spider ($TBA) has all the Italian elegance of its older brother, along with a 450-hp V8 that's matched to a 6-speed robotic gearbox. Production of the 8C Spider will be limited to only 500. Get in line now. [More Photos]
The future is here, and it's name is Fisker Karma ($80,000). Created by Henrik Fisker, the designer of the awesome Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8, the Karma is as great for the environment as it is too look at. The sexy sports sedan hybrid, of which only 15,000 a year will be produced, will be able to run 50 miles on a pure electric charge. After that, you can extend your trip to more than 620 miles with the Karma's gas or diesel engine, which will reportedly get close to 100 miles to the gallon. This green ride isn't sluggish though — Fisker claims it will be able to hit 60 mph in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph.
You wouldn't expect the second most powerful production car in the world to run on E85 ethanol fuel, but the Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition ($2.3 million) does exactly that. Its twin-supercharged 4.7L V8 makes an ass-kicking 1018 horsepower, enough to propel the car and its carbon fiber body from 0-62 in 2.9 seconds, and up to a top speed of over 250 mph. Coupled with the its gorgeous looks, the Swedish supercar is sure to be on the Christmas list of corporate big-wigs everywhere.
