North American Debut of Unique Alfa 8C Scheduled for Meadow Brook Concours

A one-of-a-kind 1934 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 will make its North American Debut at the 30th Anniversary Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance on August 2, 2009. This exciting performance car is a one-off alloy Boattail Speedster formerly owned by Angela Cherrett− noted authority and author on Alfa 8Cs, and will be presented in unrestored condition. 'We’re thrilled that the owner of this thorough-bred vintage race car has chosen the Meadow Brook Concours as the venue for its North American debut,' said Matthew de Larcinese, Executive Director – Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance. 'This addition to the show field is certain to be a crowd pleaser.' Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 (serial no. 2311237) began life as a factory show car in 1934 before being imported to Britain by London Bentley Dealer Jack Barclay in 1935. The new owner promptly ordered a new two-seat touring body designed and constructed for the race chassis. As was customary at the time, many of these automobiles were supplied to custom coachbuilders such as Pinninfarina, Zagato, Figoni, Castagna and Touring.  It remained in the UK, where it was raced and then driven until its purchase last year by a noted American collector.   Tickets for the 2009 Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance are now on sale by calling +1 248 643 8645.  Online sales will be available soon at www.mbhconcours.org.
