A superb body, a forerunner of the pontoon style developed in the late forties : I love the general balance between the hood and the cockpit, the integration of the headlights and the air intake.
This car was bodied by Touring, following the theme he had developed at the same time for BMW. The car was engaged to the1939 Le Mans 24 Hours, piloted by prince Bira and Raymond Sommer, but they had to abandon, because of mechanical failure.
The car has disappeared, but two replicas have recently been made. The latest one was shown at the 2008 Amelia concours d'elegance : it lacks the balance of the original, mainly on the windshield upper lines and on many details : a shame !…

The color pictures above were taken during the Dutch concours at Palace 't Loo in Apeldoorn some years ago.
Here are two more. Note that the car was not finished yet. The paint had just about dried and you still see some painter's tape in the holes where the tail lights should be.

Which is #914041

Here's some info by Coys for their upcoming auction: http://www.coys.co.uk/auctions/lot_list.php?id=100
Coys wrote:
In 1931 Alfa Romeo released the new 2.3 litre supercharged straight eight engined 8C 2300. Three series were produced from 1931 to 1934. The racing cars of this type were known as Monzas after their first successes at the famous Italian circuit. In 1934 the 6C 2300 was introduced. This was an all new design, unlike all Jano’s previous designs which were traceable back to the P2.

The 8C 2900s of the later 1930s used detuned 2900 Monoposto engines and were some of the fastest production cars of their day. Jano was replaced at Alfa Romeo by Trevisan, who developed the 6C 2300 into the 6C 2500. This continued in production (in ever smaller volumes) throughout World War Two. Production continued until 1950 when the new 1900 saloon was introduced. The 6C 2500 is in many eyes the ultimate development of the classic age of Alfa Romeo, being the final incarnation of one of the greatest models by Vittorio Jano, the greatest engineer of his time. The Alfa Romeo factory team also ran a team of 6C 2500 Spyders on the 1940 Mille Miglia.

This car was delivered to Count Trossi, a significant private entrant of Alfa Romeos in European events and also an owner of an Alfa Romeo Touring Berlinetta, amongst others. Count Trossi, ‘Didi’ to his friends, was of an old Italian banking family. He was the second president of Enzo Ferrari’s racing team and came in second in the 1933 Mille Miglia, as well as competing with some success in several other races and Grand Prix before the war. He died in 1949.

A copy of the estratto cronologico, issued by the Reale Automobile Club d’Italia, sheet number 12098, confirms Count Trossi of Gaglianico as the first owner of chassis 915041 at a price of 79,500 Italian Lire. A later, post-war estratto cronologico, issued by the Bologna office of the Reale Automobile Club d’Italia, confirms that this very car was sold to Luigi (Gigi) Platé on 11th October 1946. Gigi Platé was a very successful racing driver, and it is believed that he used chassis 915041 for various local events, competing against such legends as Franco Cortese, who competed a record 14 times in the Mille Miglia.

One of Platé’s successes was a respectable 4th in the over 1,100 cc class at the 1946 Circuito di Luino race, which was won by Cortese in his Lancia Astura. By the 1950s the car was in regular road use with a new Swiss owner, a certain Mr Heinrich Saredi of Küssnacht am Rigi, at the wheel. It changed hands again, passing to Mr Alois Peyer of the same town; both owners are documented in an official statement from the Swiss Generalstab. The car remained in Switzerland until the 1980s, when it was owned by a Mr Tognazzo and also a Mr Meyer.

Not true!
#915.041 was a normal Berlina, which was transformated in 'Torpedinio Brescia'
Coys is using too much fantasy to describe their Cars History.

Original Torpedinio Brescias were #915.091, #915.092 and #915.093. All destroyed, or missing.
This Car is using Chassis number #915.093, but......
