The Alfa Romeo 8C was probably the most technically advanced, modern and compelling sports car that money could buy in the 1930s - and the model is highly sought today by collectors who appreciate the way exquisite classic coachwork is often paired with a car that is mechanically strong and a delight to drive. This particular 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B now bears a cabriolet body by Pinin Farina and is finished in Gunmetal Gray, but it was first delivered as a cycle-fendered competition car to Piero Dusio, who would be instrumental in forming Cisitalia and who raced this car exclusively, retaining it until 1942. The car was rebodied after its racing career was done. Some of this car's midlife is not known and for a time the engine and body were separated, but Terry Cohn acquired them and undertook their restoration. In 1999, the car's current owner purchased the car from Cohn.
