ALFA ROMEO – 1955 ALFA ROMEO 1900 SUPER BERLINA
This Alfa Romeo 1900 Super from 1955 is believed to be a veteran of a record breaking 18 successful Mille Miglia events. It is thought to be a unique motorcar from the most exclusive portfolio of cars able to claim multiple attendance of the world’s most coveted classic car event.
Chassis number 14190 will set the pulses of Affisti racing having been with just one owner for many years.
In addition to multiple impressive Mille Miglia performance the previous owner has also contested the 1000 Millas Argentina the Winter Marathon in 1993. This car has absolutely rock solid provenance and retains a Patina that can only come from multiple presentations to Scrutineers following painstaking preparation born out with a fabulous reliability record.
The 1900 Super is a rare car. Cars from Alfa Romeo are quickly proving an excellent addition for many investment savvy collectors. A car such as this with FIVA papers, a previous ASI Gold award and full documentation to support a record number of prior Mille Miglia attendances must be one of the very best investment opportunities currently. More importantly, this car is an extremely strong nominee for future Mille Miglia events. The organisers are each year inundated with entries and clearly a car with history such as this comes with compelling credentials.
This Alfa is a joy to drive and really able to sprint along. In 1955, Alfa described the car as a racer for weekends. This was a significant period in Alfa’s post war history and this car’s success is easy to recognise from the driving experience. A car with a well balanced chassis, neutral handling and a gutsy engine; the 1900 Super is a great drivers car. Pedals allow for intuitive heal and tow and with the benefit of a boot and space. Hence, ideally suited to the ever popular multi day events held in Europe.
The history file includes both a full workshop manual, rare original handbook and of course, multiple papers in connection with prior Mille entries, in addition to current FIFA papers.
No car with provenance pertaining to the Mille Miglia has come up for sale in recent years. The sale of chassis 14190 is a truly unique opportunity to add such a car to any collection.
