Many believe the 2.3 litre 8C Alfa, of which this is an example, to be the finest race car of the early 1930s. Also know as the ‘Monza’, a moniker given to the shortened two-seater Grand Prix 8Cs after an early model emerged victorious from the 1931 Italian Grand Prix, this straight eight-powered Italian behemoth is the epitome of the spirit of racing in this glamorous era.
Enzo Ferrari declared Tazio Nuvolari as ‘the greatest he had ever seen’ and this model is of the 1932 Monaco Grand Prix car driven by Nuvolari and numbered 28. During this year, the 8C dominated the season with wins at the French and German Grand Prix, amongst others. The 8C enjoyed an excellent power-to-weight ratio and the 1932 variant no doubt benefited from an enlarged 2665cc version of the engine, fed through not one but now two superchargers.
In 1933, Alfa Romeo retired from racing but a brigade of successful privateers carried the 8C mantle. The supremacy of the 8C meant that it continued to perform well on track well into the middle of the decade and its undoubted character and style made it an icon of the age.
Every Amalgam 1:8 scale model is supplied in a luxury black presentation box and mounted on a carbon fibre or leather base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The model title, original branding and edition number are displayed on polished stainless steel plaques mounted at the front end of the base.
