This Alfa is believed to be one of the prototypes for the 1938 Mille Miglia. The car was owned in 1938 by the famous Italian racing champion Giuseppe Farina. The coachwork was made by Stablimenti Farina of Torino, Italy. This is the only example of a 2.9 Alfa with Stablimenti Farina coachwork.
The 2.9 liter Alfas, with a top speed of 109 miles per hour, were the fastest sports cars built before the Second World War. There were fewer than forty 2.9 Alfas built. This particular car has all the original parts, chassis, engine and body.
