 Stand up everybody! Here comes the only four time 24 Heures du Mans winner in history. The Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, which crossed the worldwide known race finish line in first position in 1931, 1932, 1933 and 1934. In fact, it also claimed consecutively two Mille Miglia victories, between 1932 and 1933, and also three Targa Florio, between 1931 and 1933. It is the only car ever to win in four consecutive years one of the most prestigious motorsport events in the world.

In this blue layout, Luigi Chinetti and Philippe Étancelin nailed the 1934 24 Heures du Mans race with an impressive gap of 13 laps in a 13,5km circuit.

As its name suggests is a inline-8 2.3L engine with a roots supercharger, whose 145bhp powered this wonderful steel race car over 185kmh.


Scalextric Superslot made this beatiful model with red wheels and radiator and brown cockpit cover, and a huge problem of front ride height which didn’t allow front wheels to contact the track. This issue was solved as you can see now and could follow on previous posts.
