1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza by Pur Sang s/n PS0311 Dark Blue with Burgundy Leather Interior The Alfa Romeo 8C is widely considered to be the quintessential prewar sports and racing car. It has all the ingredients of a legendary sports car of the highest caliber: rarity, beauty, sophisticated engineering, and fantastic competition pedigree. Like the successful 6C 1750 which preceded it, the 8C 2300 was designed by Vittorio Jano and had at its heart a sophisticated twin cam engine (gear driven). By adding two more cylinders of the same bore and stroke, the 6C became the 8C. A Roots supercharger provided forced induction, and in racing tune, the cars were especially potent. Indeed, the racing performance of the 8C was unequivocally dominant. Unseating the previous reigning champion, the Mercedes SSKL, the 8C was virtually unbeatable during its heyday, winning the Mille Miglia in 1932, 1933 (finishing 1st through 8th places!), and 1934. The car also won the Targa Florio in 1931, 1932, and 1933, and various Grands Prix including Monaco in 1932, and of course Monza, which is where the racing variant received the Monza designation. The Pur Sang Alfa Romeos (and Bugattis) are fascinating
