The Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 was designed to keep Romeo at the top of the international motor racing scene in the 1930s. With its straight-eight, twin-overhead-camshaft engine, the 8c 2300 did exactly. It was eventually associated with notable racers such as Luigi Chinetti and Tazio Nuvolari. A 1934 Alfa Romeo 8c 2300 is featured in the upcoming Quail Motorcar Auction, presented by Bonhams.
Over 100 cars are on offer as part of this era-crossing event. One lot representing contemporary motorcars is the 2018 Bugatti Chiron with a W16 engine. Chirons with this engine are believed to have a top speed of at least 280mph, according to the auction house. The Chiron also recently beat a world record for having climbed to 249mph and then back down to 0mph in 42 seconds.
Collectors can also consider the 1935 Aston Martin Ulster. There are only 28 surviving examples of the Ulster. This one comes to auction from the estate of David L. Van Schaick, the former president of the American Aston Martin Owners Club. Those interested in this or any other lot can register to bid on the Bonhams website.
