1938 Alfa Romeo 8C Wins Best Of Show Award At Pebble Beach

Written by tonks on August 17, 2008

Alfa Romeo 8C 2900BThe 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta (phew…that’s a mouthful) has won the Best of Show award during the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’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.
