Tazio Nuvolari was one of the great drivers of the twentieth century. His career was always closely linked to Alfa Romeo – Alfa Corse both as Scuderia Ferrari – but also competed successfully for Auto Union, before the Second World War. In Goodwood Revival – another classic event we would happily go – has auctioned an Alfa Romeo Monoposto 8C-35 Type C with which competed in 1935, under the colors of Ferrari, Enzo fabricase before their own machines.
However, his greatest feat of the year – and one of the most memorable of his career – was beating the Auto Union Type B and an old Mercedes W25 Alfa Romeo P3 with several years behind … in the Grand Prix of Germany , raced at the Nurburgring. The Alfa Romeo Monoposto 8C-35 Type C before us today has become its own right in the most expensive Alfa Romeo in history ever auctioned.
