Description

We do not want to and cannot reinvent the history of the automobile. So first of all: This is not one of the three official vehicles of this legendary type that exist worldwide. Two of them are in the Alfa Romeo Museum, one in the former Schlumpf Museum in Mulhouse. But at the same time we also assure you: Our example presented here is closer to these three original vehicles than any other examples we know of. If you read specialist books and delve into the post-war period of the 1950s, you inevitably come closer to the common practice and reality of the time. Especially if you internalize the creativity and imagination of the Italian car manufacturers and get to know their common practice at the time - at this point we would like to remind you of the multi-talented Giotto Bizzarrini - you will know at this point at the latest what a factory like Alfa Romeo was capable of was when paying with hard currency. You can argue about all sorts of things with the most intimate knowledge of the time, but there is one thing that all connoisseurs and insiders agree on: nothing was impossible, and a lot of exceptions confirm a porous rule that can be followed. With emphasis on “can”… This Disco Volante is not a factory-built vehicle, but was built in October 1954 with the correct tubular space frame, correct drive train (engine, transmission, rear axle), brakes, chassis, and finally correct aluminum body by Coriasco in the correct dimensions, weight and specifications Built at the request and on behalf of a Milanese Alfa customer with all the essential original parts of the Disco Volante, after this type of Alfa Romeo itself got stuck in the prototype stage and the project had officially “died”. The car was recently given a makeover worth around 60,000 euros to revitalize it - after it was found neglected and incomplete in Great Britain. We have his complete history from 1954 onwards, which allows us to document his individual stations. Its 1900 SS engine, prepared by Conrero, was completely overhauled - as were the braking system and all essential parts of the chassis. The vehicle has German road and H registration. We are also expecting to receive a nobility from the FIA/FIVA organization shortly, which will mean that all doors are open to this Alfa Romeo to take part in the most important events such as Mille Miglia, Le Mans Classic or Goodwood.
