Alfa Romeo Collection
The “Le Reginette del Museo Alfa Romeo” collection was born from the collaboration between Brooklin Models and FCA Heritage, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group Department which protects and enhances the historical automotive heritage of the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Abarth brands.
The first model in the collection, produced in white metal in the classic 1:43 scale, in perfect Brooklin Models style, was launched in 2020: it is the iconic Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B Speciale which competed at Le Mans in 1938.
For 2020, another 3 models are expected: the Giulietta Spider from 1958, the Giulia TZ2 from 1960 and the Giulia Sprint GTA from 1965.
Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B Speciale Tipo Le Mans
The “8C 2900” is one of the most prestigious cars in the Alfa Romeo Museum. Powered by a 2.9 litre supercharged straight 8 producing 220 HP this Alfa was to become an icon among pre-war racing cars.
The beautiful “Superleggera” aluminium body work was hand beaten and riveted to a welded tubular frame which gave this big Alfa a strong yet lightweight construction.
Made by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan in 1938, this unique 8C was to participate in the world famous Le Mans 24 hour race supported by the “Sommer-Biondetti” crew. On the day of the race the Alfa performed very well and drove to an incredible advantage of about 150 km before sadly being forced to retire.
