Footnotes

  • The car offered here is a scaled-down replica of one of the greatest Grand Prix cars of all time: The Alfa Romeo 8C Monza. Designed by the legendary Vittorio Jano, the supercharged, eight-cylinder, 2.3-litre 8C first appeared in 1931 in sports car configuration, winning that year's Le Mans race and the Targa Florio. Later that year, the works 8Cs entered by Scuderia Ferrari finished 1st and 2nd in the Grand Prix of Europe at Monza, giving the model its evocative name. Realising that more power would be needed to stay ahead of the opposition, Jano further developed the Monza, enlarging the straight-eight engine to 2,654cc for the successor P2 single-seater. The P2s dominated the 1932 Grand Prix season but were sidelined for 1933 as a result of Alfa's financial problems. Rescued by the Italian government, the racing programme was back on track in time for the 1934 season but by this time the P2 was facing the more powerful Auto Unions and Mercedes-Benz cars. From then onwards successes were few, Tazio Nuvolari's sensational win in the 1935 German GP at the Nürburgring at the wheel of a P2 being the standout highlight
