Today, a car is reborn, bringing to light a chapter of history that lasted perhaps a few days or perhaps a few years when an S10 SS engine with a three-litre displacement is installed on an 8C 2900 chassis modified with the collaboration of Porsche. All this was “dressed” in an elegant aluminium alloy bodywork that Alfa Romeo created with a nod to the shape of the “Alfetta”, which had already begun to show the potential that would turn it into a legend after the war.
A “photograph” with blurred contours – due to time and events – that portrays the moment when the chassis, engine and bodywork came together to create a 12C prototype. Since it was not coded, produced and sold, it cannot be recorded in a production register or perfectly portrayed in a technical drawing, but a series of information, research and characteristics that emerged during the restoration make the whole thing plausible. The Missing Link?
