1910 ALFA 24HP

Alfa Romeo's birth certificate reads: Milan, 24 June 1910.That was the day a group of entrepreneurs and businessmen took over the Italian Darracq automobile company (based in Portello on the outskirts of Milan) from its French parent company, and called it Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili. The 24 hp was the first car prodcued by the company. The mechanical components, performance and driving satisfaction that proved so popular on Alfa's first car are all features for which the brand was to become famous. The following year it made its racing debut, and it was set to win the Targa Florio when forced to withdraw due to a minor accident when the driver was temporarily blinded by mud. -- Alfa Romeo
