Detailed Description

This is the Alfa Romeo P2 Classic Racing Car Model by Old Modern Handicrafts

The P2 was introduced by Alfa Romeo for the Circuit of Cremona in northern Italy in 1924, where Antonio Ascari won at over 158 km/h (98 mph), and then went on to win the speed trial at 195 km/h (121 mph). The car was the first creation of Alfa’s new designer Vittorio Jano who had been recruited from Fiat by Enzo Ferrari when Nicola Romeo scrapped the P1 after its poor performance in the 1923 Monza Grand Prix against Fiat. The P2 was powered by Alfa’s first straight-8 cylinder supercharged engine with 2 carburetors placed after the compressor. Only 2 of the 6 original models survive, and they can be seen in the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese and the Turin Automobile Museum.

Our model is handmade from tin and painted in yellow color. It features many intricate details such as turnable wheels & tires, exhaust system, front wireless radiator, black painted steering wheel, and seat.

It's a great model for any office decoration or passionate car collectors.
