On show in this period “Matta”, Scarabeo and more
Time for change at the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo. Some of the vehicles that are normally on display are on the road to participate in important national and international events, as testimonials of the Brand’s extraordinary history. And other cars from the historical Alfa Romeo collection have arrived to the Museum in these very days, to amaze its visitors: the 1900 M, better known as “Matta”, an off-road vehicle built in the ‘50s on a contract for the War Ministry and the Giulia “Torpedo” which President of the Republic Giuseppe Saragat drove in along the corridors of the plant in Arese to greet the workers in 1966. And yet others, from the prototype of the Scarabeo – a rear-engine sports vehicle with the GTA’s “twin shaft” – to the 1900 C52 coupé Disco Volante. From the 1924 RL Targa Florio, which the following year upon Ugo Sivocci’s victory reached second place in the legendary Sicilian race, to the bold 156 D2 Superturismo, progenitor of a long genealogy of vehicles that won as many as 13 tourism championships, Italian and international, drivers, car makers and team.
Until June 20th, visitors to the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo will also be able to admire other cars from the historical Alfa Romeo Collection that can be seen in the temporary exhibit “Alfa Corse – II Act”: Alfa’s dominance in Formula 3, the compelling Alfa Boxer, but also the broken dream of Formula Indy and the ones that never even started with the ProCar Championship, the return to Sport Group C and also to Formula 1.
