One of the rarest Alfas in the world will be offered at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction on Saturday, August 20, 2016. Expertly restored by Tony Merrick, this beauty bearing chassis no. 412041, is powered by a 180 bhp, 2905 cc DOHC inline eight-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and dual Roots-type superchargers, four-speed manual transmission, double-wishbone independent front suspension with coil springs over dampers, swing axle rear suspension with radius arms, transverse semi-elliptical leaf spring, and hydraulic friction dampers, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
This is one of approximately 12 extant Touring Spiders.
