A selection of Alfa Romeo race cars were also on display, including the 1953 Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM (Competizione Maggiorata) that Juan Manuel Fangio raced at the 24 Hours Le Mans in 1953. After a short racing career, it was rebodied by Carrozzeria Boano and then presented by Alfa Romeo to Argentine President Juan Peron and his wife, Evita. It was later converted back to the original Colli coupe configuration as seen at Lime Rock.
Additional Alfa Romeos included a 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza believed to be the one raced by Tazio Nuvolari to victory at the 1932 Monaco Grand Prix. It was later entered in the 1933 Monaco Grand Prix and French Grand Prix and, in 1934, placed second in the British Empire Trophy Race at the hands of Charles Brackenbury.
