65. Alfa Romeo 158

65. Alfa Romeo 158


Following World War II, the car was eligible for the new Formula One introduced in 1947. In the hands of drivers such as Nino Farina, Juan Manual Fangio and Luigi Fagioli, it dominated the first two seasons of the world championship of drivers. The first of this successful racing car, the 158, was made during 1937/1938. The main responsibility for engineering was given to Gioacchino Colombo. The 158 was modified again, this time to produce 300 BHP and was denoted as Tipo 158/47. The car made a tragic debut in the 1948 Swiss Grand Prix where Achille Varzi lost control of his car and was killed. The car won every race in which it competed during 1950. It was incredible that a car which had originated in 1938 was so victorious. The Alfa Romeo team included talented drivers such as Giuseppe Farina and Manuel Fangio, the latter of whom later won the World Drivers Championship five times.
