The ultimate pre-war race car. An apotheosis of speed and style.

As I remember, racing version - Monza produced up to 180 horses and could achieve speeds up to 220 kph.

Anyway, the road version was excellent too. Although this triple-headlight looks a bit ridiculous, the car is still beautiful and elegant.

Tazio Nuvolari won the 1931 and 1932 Targa Florio race in Sicily in the racing version.
Later the race version was called "Monza", because of the victory at Monza in 1931.

@ Fangio Man: 170 KPH, that's around 105 MPH, impressive speed for 1932.
