Most cars on the road today can’t even get near 150mph, but back in 1933 this supercharged Afla Romeo 8C 2900B could go faster. Originally a racing car, it took third place in the Mille Miglia before it was re-bodied into the beautiful GT car you see here.
As a road car based on a racing car, this is the pre-war precursor to what we now know as the hypercar. The Alfa Romeo 8C was among the fastest racecars of the era, and here was one you could drive to the shops. It was literally a Formula One car for the road.
