This car is a symbol for a last rearing up of a once successful brand at races. Deep sits the sting, the two German brands Mercedes and Auto Union have set since around 1933. The Nazi government in Germany has provided massive support and the earlier successful could not keep up.

Alfa, in any case always been on the verge of financial possiblities, once again attempts in 1937 a comeback with a twelve-cylinder. Although apparently it comes as a front-engine, but built in very far back and has installed the gear and the giant tank in a long and relatively pointed rear end. Because alcoholic special fuel is tanked, a total of 230 liters fuel tank capacity is possible.

But it will not succeed. Not only that one will finish much too late for the 1937 season racing, furthermore the durability of the new twelve-cylinder engine is lacking. In summary, we speak of a beautiful car, bigger and more spacious than its previous eight-cylinder brothers, but with little success. After the Second World War there are much better chances, especially with Achille Varzi in South America.

The above pictured car is a civilian version with about 66 kW (90 HP) less. Only the front is very similar to the racing car. But you have to think away the spotlight. Just as the decorations on the hood. It now offers two seats side by side. The additional rear wing make the rear appear more delicate. 09/09
