A significant car in Grand Prix racing history, this Alfa Romeo Tip B Grand Prix Monoposto was purchased directly from Scuderia Ferrari in Modena, Italy by British motor racing driver Richard Shuttleworth for the 1935 racing season. In October 1935 Shuttleworth won the inaugural Donington Grand Prix beating two ex-works Type 59 Bugattis, and in November 1935 he set the Brooklands Mountain Circuit lap record that stood as the 2.0–3.0-liter lap record for all time up to its closure in 1939.
