1935-1939 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900

Considered by many to be the first supercar, the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 was a grand prix winner you could buy for yourself. At the outbreak of World War II, this was the ultimate sports car, powered by a twin-supercharged straight eight. Most of the cars wore bodies by Touring or by Alfa Romeo itself. Here we honor the Alfa-bodied spiders, but all 8C 2900s are held in such esteem by collectors that on the rare occasion when one comes on the market, a seven-figure sale price is virtually guaranteed.
