Sale Price: $11,990,000
Auction: Gooding & Co.
Introduced in 1931, the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 was the premier high-performance sports car of its day, carrying a powerful inline 8-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts and a gear-driven supercharger. This Alfa was first registered in Genova on August 10, 1933, and remained in the region for the next 17 years. During this period it was purchased by a succession of prominent Italian racing drivers and successfully campaigned for many years. Eventually purchased by an American engineer, the car came to America in 1954. Restored in the early 1980s, the Monza went on to have another racing career and is still in superb mechanical condition today.
