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. Designed especially for Italy's Mille Miglia open-road endurance race, the 2900 took home the top three spots in its first showing in 1938 and the top two the following year. 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.
