This is a modified version of the P2 racing car, designed by Vittorio Jano, which on its debut in 1924 won the 200 Miles of the II Circuito di Cremona, driven by Antonio Ascari. It was the first of a series of victories, including the Italian Grand Prix with Ascari, two European Grands Prix with Giuseppe Campari and Ascari, the first World Championship with Gastone Brilli Peri, the Monza Grand Prix and the seventh Circuito di Alessandria (also called Circuito Pietro Bordino) with Achille Varzi. The model was modified in 1930 and it too made a name for itself in various races, including the Circuito di Alessandria and the Targa Florio, once again in the hands of Achille Varzi. The P2 model is considered the grandsire of all Alfa Romeo’s famous racing cars.
