CMC Alfa-Romeo P3, cut-off model, including showcase
The Alfa-Romeo Tipo B was the most successful single-seater Grand Prix racing car of its time. Alfa-Romeo built and raced it between 1932 and 1936. Initially as a factory race car for Alfa-Romeo, then later under the Scuderia Ferrari label after having taken over Alfa-Romeos racing activities. The car, designed by the legendary engineer Vittorio Jano, was based on the equally legendary Alfa-Romeo 8C models. The P3 was Alfa-Romeos second single-seater after the Tipo-A monoposto of 1931.
HISTORY (ORIGINAL VEHICLE)
The peculiarity and ingenuity of the thoroughbred racing car penned by Vittorio Jano is impressively perceptible with the CMC cutaway model. But not only the original impresses as a total work of art; With the cutaway model of the Alfa-Romeo P3, we show all our skills in the construction of high-quality model vehicles, which we have acquired over the past 27 years. The engine with compressors and all ancillary units, the complete line routing and wiring, the transmission with shift gate, hand-laced wheels, the leather driver’s seat, functional wheel suspension with leaf springs and adjustable friction dampers, the brake linkage running on the vehicle floor – everything is also perfectly detailed in the 1:18 scale replicated.Vittorio Jano’s ingenious construction is impressive to see – in particular the V-shaped forked drive shafts from the differential to the rear, which made it possible to mount the driver’s seat exactly in the resulting space on the vehicle floor – an ingenious move to lower the center of gravity. Once again, this cutaway reminds us of a quote from our founder, who once said that a CMC model is also beautiful on the inside. This guiding principle can be experienced in the most beautiful way here.
