Chassis 915325 was built on the 2nd of April 1947 and sent to Pinin Farina who made this 4-seat Sport Cabriolet. The Sport Cabriolet was really the first post-war Italian grand tourer and it sold in large numbers and helped Alfa to regain its pre-war status as one of the world’s great marques. It was delivered to its first owner in Brussels in June 1948 and has lived in Europe its entire life. It has recently been restored to its original specification.

This one of a kind 1934 Alfa Romeo Pescara Prototype was built to race at Le Mans. It has some very unique features for the time period, such as front and rear torsion bar suspension that is adjustable within one gram at all four wheels, an integrated tubular frame that circulates oil to a dry sump, and a 2,300 cc, inline 6 cylinder engine, with 125 horsepower. Although the car did not race at Le Mans, it successfully competed in hill climbs and was last seen in 1952. In the late 1980s, the current owners discovered the car in Florida and spent 20 years painstakingly restoring it to its current condition. Although it cannot be proven, this car may very well be the first two-seat open car with an envelope body.
