1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Tipo LeMans. The Car Collectors Dream.

Here we walk around the beautiful and highly desirable 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Tipo LeMans (Chassis No. 2311210) at the 2018 Salon Privé.

The celebrated Alfa Romeo 8C (8C designated 8 cylinders, originally in a straight eight configuration) was typically coachbuilt as a two seater sports car, with the model also used to create the world’s first genuine single-seater Grand Prix racing car. This stunning 8C 2300 was imported into Great Britain from Italy in 1937 by Thomson & Taylor – the British Alfa Romeo agents, based near Brooklands, Surrey. The Alfa Romeo was imported to original Tipo Le Mans specification with a stretched Lungo chassis and body. This Alfa is a matching numbers car with no major replacement components. Although this 8C 2300 has no confirmed competition history, it is to the exact specification as successfully raced at LeMans (where an Alfa Romeo 8C won the 24 Hours race in 1931, driven by Sir Henry Birkin and Lord Howe) and the Tourist Trophy races in Northern Ireland. This car’s British owners include The Regent Oil Company.
