The annual Concours of Elegance show will return to Windsor Castle this September in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday. 60 of the rarest cars in the world will be featured in the Main Concours competition, here are five we decided to preview.
1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Viotti Coupé
The Alfa Romeo 8C family of cars includes both racing and road-going vehicles built around the Italian manufacturer’s straight 8-cylinder engine. Due to the 2.3L (2336 cc) displacement of the first 8C’s produced in the early 1930s, they were known as 8C 2300s.
This 8C 2300 was originally built to compete at Le Mans, where it took 3rd place in 1933. A year later, Vittorini Viotti fabricated a one-of-a-kind coupe body to replace its racing sheetmetal with an elegant and emotive shape that transports one back to the heyday of the coachbuilder.
