This is one Alfa Romeo with a long history. It began life as a 1942 model year, until it was rebodied in 1946 by Pinin Farina. Farina had wanted to show the car at that year's Paris Salon, but Italian manufacturers were forbidden from displaying their vehicles at the show. Despite being barred from the show, Farina parked the car outside the show and received headlines. The car later saw various modifications until it was parted out. In 2008, the Guild of Automotive Restorers began working on bringing this special Alfa back to life. Valued at €1 - €1.5 million. - More Info
