New release coming from Italeri. It starts shipping in the first week of November.
The Alfa Romeo 8C can be considered as one of the most famous sports cars
in the 1930s. The car’s name derives from the engine adopted: an 8-cylinder
in-line supercharged engine with a displacement of 2,336 cc. The Alfa Romeo
could be considered the “state of the art” for technology, innovative solutions, and
performances. Characterized by impressive reliability and driveability the
“8C” achieved significant victories in international car racing competitions. It
linked its name to the famous Italian driver Tazio Nuvolari that won, among the
others, the Targa Florio race in Sicily and the prestigious Italian Grand Prix at
Monza. This last victory gave the “Monza” name to the twin seater GP car. From
the racing version, a production batch of almost 200 vehicles was produced for
the private markets and to be used on the normal road.
