Designed for Le Mans competition only, this Alfa Romeo is a pre-war car masterpiece.
Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Le Mans Speciale was built for 1938 Le Mans race. The aerodynamic coupé was designed by Carrozzeria Touring which created one of the first racing coupé in the time when most racing cars were open. The coupé, driven by Sommer and Biondetti, led for most of the race, but tyre trouble was then followed by a dropped valve.
Today in the Alfa Romeo museum, the car is an example of a revolutionary modernist car design.
