Looking even further back in history, 1933 represented a year of sporting glory for Alfa Romeo, during which the brand dominated motorsport and its emblem fascinated and captured the hearts of all motor racing fans.

The famous couple of Tazio Nuvolari and Giovanni Battista Guidotti Compagnoni triumphed in the legendary Mille Miglia aboard the very powerful 8C 2300.
