This Ultra-Rare Pre-War Alfa Romeo Is Hitting the Auction Block

She's so beautiful it's like time is standing still

Now here is something you don’t see every day.

Among the slew of grand rides set to grace the block at the upcoming annual Paris Rétromobile in February, RM Sotheby’s has decided to come out of the gates strong with the announcement of one Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3.

Here’s the scoop: be it for road or raceway, Ferrari has produced cars under its own namesake for about the past 70 years. But prior to WWII, the Italian scuderia produced Alfa Romeos. And for the first time in over a decade, one of those unicorns is up for grabs.

The ‘34 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3 is one of the most notable pre-War Grand Prix racers, just one of nine makes in the Second Series builds. It’s a dashing display of Enzo Ferrari’s racing chops, and according to Sotheby’s, still in “highly original” condition. The model you see here is a 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3, “rated by many as the most beautiful and effective racing car of its era.”

The pony’s expected to go for approximately $3.8-$4.9m and will come packing a Goodwood Revival invitation in the proverbial glove box.
