A high-performing classic sports car. 

1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B

Long, elegant and uniquely Italian, the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B remains a classic today due to its high-performance engineering and distinctive styling. With the "B" edition, Alfa Romeo made some concessions for passenger comfort and convenience, winning over drivers just as it did raceways. While Alfa Romeo has continued to use the 8C name intermittently for its high-performance sports cars, few have achieved such a successful combination of speed and grace.
