The 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta (phewâ€¦thatâ€™s a mouthful) has won the Best of Show award during the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours dâ€™Elegance. The car was owned by Mary and John Shirley from Medina, Washington.
While every car there was extraordinary, the Best of Show car is always a stunner. This year was no exception. One of possibly five 8C 2900s bodied by Touring, this 8C has the supercharged straight 8 that was good for an amazing 180 hp.
Some 30 8Cs were produced by Farina and Touring from 1937-1939, and few are the same or as nice as this particular example. The Best of Show car also gets a boost in MSRP typically, being able to justifiably call itself the best collector car around.
