The legendary Alfa Romeo 2.3 liter straight-eight engine made its first appearance in the 1931 Mille Miglia. One of the remarkable characteristics of the 8C 2300's is that the cars performed equally well in racing, grand touring or just going shopping. There were three series of the 2.3 liter engine. The first was produced in 1931, and the second and third series were made from 1932 to 1934. At the time, these cars were priced at 80,000 to 125,000 lire.

The car displayed here, a Series II, was originally purchased new by Andrea Mario Piaggio of the Piaggio family, which was famous for its aeroplanes and later, its scooters. It was used as a road car until October 11th, 1951 when it was parked and no longer driven.

In 1958 the car was donated to the Museo dell' Automobile Carlo Biscaretti in Torino, Italy. At that time the museum already had a fully restored Touring body Spider, so the body was removed from the Piaggio 8C 2300 and the rolling chassis was put on display until 1995. The body was sold to Brian Brunkhorst, but it took him nine years to persuade the museum to sell the chassis. The chassis and body were then re-united and ultimately sold to the current owner, who has entered this car in the 2005 Copperstate 1000 (where it won the Director's Award), the 2500 Alfa 8C Tour of the Rockies, and the 2006 Louis Vuitton Classic Boheme Run (Budapest to Prague).
