Chassis #: 2111007
This first Alfa Romeo 8C 2300s were ready in time to make their debut at the 1931 Mille Miglia, a grueling race even for thoroughly developed cars. Two Zagato-bodied cars were entered for Tazio Nuvolari and Luigi Arcangeli. This Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Zagato Spider (chassis number 2111007) is one of the earliest 8Cs produced and was used by the Alfa racing team in 1931. This is one of the two cars raced at the Targa Florio that season. It was sold shortly after to Scuderia Ferrari and was raced by Enzo Ferrari himself in his last competitive event. The car was sold again before the end of the season and continued to be raced in various events. By 1935 the car was sold to an owner in the United Kingdom, where it remained for decades to come. Among its later owners were marque expert and restorer Paul Grist and racing driver and collector Nick Mason of Pink Floyd fame.
