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.

64. Alfa Romeo P3 monoposto

64. Alfa Romeo P3 monoposto

 

It was based on the earlier successful Alfa Romeo P2. Taking lessons the P3 was the first genuine single seater racing car, and was powered by a supercharged eight-cylinder engine. The car was very light for the period, weighing just over 680 kgs despite using a cast iron engine block.

The P3 was introduced in June, halfway through the 1932 Grand Prix season in Europe, winning its first race at the hands of Tazio Nuvolari and going on to win 6 races that  year by both Nuvolari and Rudolf Caracciola, including all 3 major Grands Prix in Italy, France and Germany. The P3’s agility and versatility enabled it to win 16 of the 39 Grand Prix in 1935. The P3 had earned its place as a truly great racing car.

50. Tazio Nuvolari

50. Tazio Nuvolari Alfa Romeo

The P3 was introduced in June, halfway through the 1932 Grand Prix season in Europe, winning its first race at the hands of Tazio Nuvolari and going on to 6 races that year driven by both Nuvolari and Rudolf Caracciola, including all 3 major Grand Prix in Italy, France and Germany. The 1933 Grand Prix season brought financial difficulties to Alfa Corse so the cars were simply locked away and Alfa attempted to rest on their laurels. Enzo Ferrari had to run his breakaway “works” Alfa team as Scuderia Ferrari, using the older, less effective Alfa Monzas. Alfa prevaricated until August and missed the first 25 events and only after much wrangling was the P3 finally handed over to Scuderia Ferrari. P3 then won six of the final 11 events of the season including the final 2 major Grand Prix in Italy and Spain. The regulations for the 1934 Grand Prix season brought larger bodywork requirements so to counteract this the engine was bored out to 2.9 litres. Louis Chiron won the French Grand Prix at Montlhery, whilst the German Silver Arrows dominated the other four rounds of the European Championship. However the P 3 s won 18 of all the 35 Grand Prix held troughout Europe.

39. Alfa Romeo RLTF

39. Alfa Romeo RLTF

Three different versions were made : Normale, Turismo and Sport. The RLTF (Targa Florio) was the race version of RL – it weighed half of normal versions, the engine had seven main bearings instead of four and double carburetors. The 1923 Alfa’s raceteam had drivers like Ugo Sivocci, Antonio Ascari, Giulio Maseti and Enzo Ferrari. Sirocci’s car had a green cloverleaf symbol on white background and when he won Targa Florio 1923, that symbol was to become the Alfa team’s good luck token.

5. Hellé Nice and her Alfa Monza

5.Hellé – Nice_full

  Original watercolour has been sold  

 

Hellé Nice (1900 – 1984) in her Alfa Monza was not only a woman men fell in love with, she was above all a deserving driver.  The list of her lovers among which aristocrats,  is definitely as long as the list with numbers of races she took part in.  Among her lovers were Philippe de Rothschild, liqueur king André Dubonnet and Maurice Chevalier.

Hellé Nice was a daughter of a postman Léon Delangle. She went to Paris at the age of 16 where she found work in some of the city’s music halls. She became a very successful dancer under the stagename Hélène Nice which eventually became Hellé Nice. Her income from dancing as well as modeling became such that she could afford to purchase a home and her own yacht. Nice loved the thrill of driving fast cars and so snatched the chance to perform in the racing events. Philippe de Rothschild introduced himself to her shortly after her return from America. For a time, the two shared a bed and the love of automobile racing. Rothschild had been racing his Bugatti and he introduced her to Ettoire Bugatti. Having been outspoken in her desire to compete with the men she achieved her goals and in 1931 she drove a Bugatti 35c in five major Grand Prix in France. A master of showmanship. Over the next several years as the only female on the Grand Prix circuit, Nice continued to race Bugatti’s and Alfa Romeo’s against the greatest drivers of the day including Tazio Nuvolari, Rudolf Caracchiola, Louis Chiron, Bernd Rosemeyer and Jean Pierre Wimille among others. She competed not only in Grand Prix races but also hillclimbs and rallies all over Europe incuding the famous Monte Carlo rally.

Alfa Romeo Monoposto 8c

The Scuderia Ferrari team did not only have Tazio Nuvolari as a ace in hands but also the beautiful car Alfa Romeo Monoposto tipo 8 C. The 3.8 litre produced 330 bhp. The car made its debut at the Italian Grand Prix in September 1935.

The Scuderia Ferrari team was founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929 and became the racing team of Alfa Romeo, building and racing cars under the Alfa name. In 1938 Alfa Romeo management made the decision to enter racing under its own name, establishing the Alfa Corsa organisation which absorbed what had been Scuderia.  Enzo Ferrari disagreed with his own name for a period of four years.

In 1939 Ferrari started work on a racecar of his own, the Tipo 815 (eight cylinders 1.5 l displacement). The 815 was thus the first Ferrari car.

World war II put a temporary end to racing and Ferrari concentrated on an alternative use for his factory during the war years, doing machinetool work. After the war Ferrari recruited several of his former Alfa collegues and established a new Scuderia Ferrari which would design and build its own cars. The prancing horse was het symbol of Italian world war I ace Francesco Baracc’s fighter plane and became the logo of Ferrari.
