This Sexy Alfa Romeo Was Voted The ‘Best In Show’ At Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2019

A gorgeous 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Berlinetta Touring has won the ‘Best In Show’ and ‘Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este’ awards at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza.

For one more year, lake Como welcomed the most precious and distinctive classic cars for the world’s most traditional heritage beauty contest.

Alfa Romeo only made 30 of these beautiful two-door coupes between 1937 and 1940. Based on the same platform with the company’s immensely successful racing car, the 8C 2900B is powered by an all-alloy straight-eight engine with two overhead camshafts and twin superchargers, making 180hp.

Other features include independent suspension and a rear-mounted transmission, showcasing just how advanced the design of this Alfa Romeo was for its era. This particular example is the first of just five vehicles with a long wheelbase, wearing an incredibly elegant Superleggera coachwork created by Carrozzeria Touring.

It’s the combination of high-end engineering with timeless design that set this Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B apart from the competition.

“I have won a lot of prizes with my automobiles, but this vehicle really fulfills all my desires. The Best of Show here at Villa d’Este is like receiving a knighthood,” said David Sydorick, the owner of this treasured classic. “My wife and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks for this award.”

The same car has also won ‘Best of Show’ at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, with many experts comparing it to Ralph Lauren’s Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic.

    Beautiful does not do this masterpiece justice but why no interior shots. So many stories of beautiful cars these days neglect to show the interiors, the place where you spend your time driving.

    It’s very gorgeous. And I believe its spiritual successor, the Alfa 8C, would follow its footsteps as a future classic.
