1973 Alfa Romeo Type 33-12

The Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 made its first appearance in 1967, but so sound was the basic design that developments of it were raced by the company until 1977, when it won all eight rounds of the World Sportscar Championship. Early cars which appeared under the designation “Tipo 33” had […]

1955 Alfa Romeo 1900 Super Sprint (1996)

In the immediate after-war period Alfa Romeo concentrated their efforts on reproducing their 1939 6C 2500 Series cars affectionately known as the “Golden Arrows,” but they were expensive and attracted the best of coachbuilders’ art form and therefore were only purchased by the wealthy. They were, in fact, the last […]

1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750

Individuality had been a hallmark of Alfa from the earliest days and when Nicola Romeo took over the company in 1918 this became even more the case. Competition soon came to the fore; by 1929 Scuderia Ferrari had been set up to run Alfa Romeo’s racing program with Ferrari being […]

1973 Alfa Romeo Montreal

{vsig}1996-6_1691{/vsig} Stylish, elegant and distinctive, the Montreal made its debut at the Montreal Expo during the 1967 World Fair in the city of the same name, an event that celebrated Canada’s centenary.

1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (1996)

Alfa Romeo, Italy’s oldest sporting marque, has been building cars since 1910.

With the advent of the 1950s, Alfa Romeo was […]

1935 Alfa Romeo Tipo 8C Monoposto

{vsig}1996-1_1715{/vsig} This magnificent “time machine” is virtually unique in being a Grand Prix car which has lain completely unrestored and substantially unaltered since it was last raced in earnest over forty years ago. This illustrious car has an exceptional provenance. It is a most important survivor from the epic “Age […]

1951 Alfa Romeo 2500 SS Supergioello

Vittorio Jano’s immortal twin-overhead camshaft six-cylinder 2.3-liter engine, introduced in 1934, was later developed by Bruno Treviso to become the 2500 of 1939, and this continued in production in Super Sport guise until 1951. The Supergioelle (Super Jewel) was not an Alfa Romeo model, but a style of bodywork developed […]

1968 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/S Daytona

In 1950 Alfa Romeo introduced the 1900, a modern sporting saloon with some unmistakable family traits. At about the same time as the management were firmly directing the company down this new road, they lost all sense of direction so far as competition cars were concerned. It wasn’t that Alfa […]

Alfa Romeo 8C-2300 “Rimoldi”

The Rimoldi Alfa, named after its owner of over 50 years, is one of the most coveted cars of the pre-war era.

Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider

The 1966 Geneva Motor Show saw the debut of the Alfa Romeo Duetto, which replaced the existing 101 series Giulia Spyder.
