The Tipo 8A, which was introduced at the 1924 Paris Auto Salon and produced until 1932, was a complete redesign of the Tipo 8. The new 7,372cc engine was an inline 8-cylinder model with an output of 115 bhp and a maximum speed of 81 mph. The car also had new servo brakes - an understandable addition, considering that the chassis alone weighed 3,256 pounds. About 950 chassis were made, and each were priced at $8,500. After adding the cost of coachwork, the Tipo 8A was one of the most expensive cars of its day. This car reportedly came to the United Kingdom in 1931 in the ownership of an Indian Prince, who was studying at Edinburgh University. The Coupe de Ville bodywork is by Cesare Sala of Milan.
