Most Alfa watchers believe the 8C Spider and its coupe sibling will be among the first Alfa Romeo product to hit these shores when the brand returns to the states sometime in the next few years. Now, we hear the two slinky sexpots will make an appearance at the Paris show next month, the meaning of which has been largely interpreted as "coming soon to a forecourt near you." As a kind of countdown to Paris, check out this Google vid of the 8C Spider at the Villa d'Este Concours d'Elegance, where it won both the Villa d'Este Design Award and BMW Group Design Award, and consider what might be imminent.
