This Alfa Romeo Coupe was originally built as a Tipo 256 Spider Siluro. Enzo Ferrari himself directed the manufacturing process for this car in Modena, Italy as part of five 256 Spider Siluros built by Alfa Romeo. Between 1939 and 1940, this Alfa Romeo, chassis 915014, competed in eight races, including placing fourth at the Pescara Grand Prix in Italy, and finishing seventh in its class at the last Mille Miglia before the start of World War II. After its storied racing career, 915014 was rebodied by Carrozzeria Touring in 1941 to its current coupe form. Following a fastidious restoration by its current owner, this Alfa Romeo won the Touring Class, Mille Miglia Trophy, and the Bulgari Award at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® as well as Best of Show at the 2018 Forest Grove Concours d’Elegance. This elegant Alfa Romeo is a rare opportunity for an astute enthusiast to add a factory Tipo 256 to their collection.
