The Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale is one of the cars I’d seriously consider selling my soul for, but I had never laid eyes on one in the flesh until the New York Auto Show this year. It was a massive surprise for me, as I had not heard it would be present, and I literally flipped a shit when we came across it.
Our friend, Nathan Corry, shot this same Tipo 33 Stradale at Amelia Island this year, and he let us use his photos from the event. I was beyond thrilled to be able to see the car for myself in NY, though, as you might imagine. It is a truly magnificent machine.
Also present was a Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo 8C Monza as well as one of the handful of Alfa TZ2’s built. Along with the 33 Stradale, the Alfa Romeo stand, with just these cars, was probably worth as much, or more, money than all of the rest of the cars at NYIAS combined. Think about that.
Even so, this is the sort of stuff only true car nerds would appreciate, so there were very few people stopping to see these incredible cars. I found it funny because hundreds of people would walk past, and then every so often you’d see someone just loose their mind with excitement over the cars (as I did).
Alfas don’t get much better than these, so enjoy the pics!
