    I prefer the le Mans Berlinetta(below) but I guess this one will do in a pinch;)

    This is a massive sale and a great opportunity (if you can call a $20MM car buy an opportunity). This car has been owned in NL for the last 40 years and rarely been shown. Its also one of only 4 in private hands, the 5th car is in the Alfa museum. The Touring Berlinetta und Spyder bodies for the 8C are incredibly beautiful.

    Yes, a very rare car. But I think the estimate is too optimistic.

    It will be interesting to see where it sells.
    Two Pebble Beach Best in Show winners in the last 10 years were Touring Berlinetta siblings to this car. Perhaps a buyer looking for a car for the concours circuit will pay up.
    Hopefully it's more visible in the coming years as these are really special cars.

    Never driven these cars. Oldest I have driven was a pf cab S1. Wonder how much different they are.

    Certainly beautiful.
