Impressive Alfa display at Auto Retro Barcelona

| 1 Mar 2011

A 14-car line-up of Alfas, headed by a handsome '25 RL tourer, was the main attraction at the 27th Auto Retro Barcelona. The event which took place in Montjuic Hall was held from 4-8 December.

The RL was flanked by a 6C-1500, a number of 6C-2500s with Pininfarina drophead coachwork, and an unusual '55 Ghia-bodied 1900S Supergioelle amongst others.

It wasn't just Alfas, though. Another highlight lurking among the dealer displays was an ex-Chequered Flag team Lancia Stratos, Chassis 1716.

It was the fourth Stratos linked to the British team, but never ran in anger.

Barcelona will also kick off Europe's historic racing season with the Catalan Classic Revival from 8-10 April at the Circuit de Cataluna. You'll get to see GP, sports-racers, GT and Touring Cars, plus a reunion of Escuderia Monjuich team cars and drivers.
