1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 TI Super

The business relationship between Alfa Romeo and Carrosserie Worblaufen had been established for some twenty years by the time Worblaufen presented several Alfa Romeos 1900 coupes and convertibles in the 1950s. The Swiss company reflected strongly the designs of Touring and Pininfarina, but was able to keep its own personality.

This car graced the exhibit of Worblaufen at the Geneva Show of 1955 and also at the 2005 Geneva Auto Show as part of their vintage display celebrating 100 years of Swiss coachwork.
