Alfa Romeo 8C 2300

Pocher Model

Scale 1:8

A winner at Le Mans in 1931 and 1934, a version of this Vittorio Jano-designed car was also successful in the 1931 Italian Grand Prix taking first and second places with the Nuvolari-Campari and Borzacchini-Minoia partnerships in the driving seat, and earning itself the nickname 'Monza' in the process. Monzas came a victorious first and second at the Monaco Grand Prix in the hands of Nuvolari and Caracciola. The car notched up more than 50 victories in its time with the heroes of the era, Nuvolari, Campari, Borzacchini, Caracciola, Etancelin and Sommer.
