Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3


RM Sotheby’s 2017 auction is featuring one of the most influenctial pre-war racing cars – a historic Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3. As the first major European classic car event of the new year, Rétromobile week in February 2017 – held at the Place Vauban in Paris – will also host a number of high-profile classic car auctions. And you have guessed right, its highlight is a 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3.

The post-war, 1954 Osca MT4 1500, once a participant of the minacious Carrera Panamericana – has also gone under the hammer and was predicted to fall somewhere between €975,000- €1,175,000. This specific example boasted cutting-edge technology, being the first twin ignition 1500 to roll off the Bologna production line.

The P3 represented a shift in design emphasis for period Grand Prix cars, adopting the narrower ‘slipper’ bodystyle dispensing of the second seat for ride-in mechanics to shave weight. The open-wheeled racer claimed victory on home soil at Monza, followed by a brace of podium lock-outs at the French and German Gran Prixs during the 1931 season.

2017 年 RM Sotheby’s 集中火力的汽车拍卖会,其中一辆最具影响力的战前赛车 -历史悠久的阿尔法罗密欧 (Alfa Romeo) Tipo B P3 将是焦点之一。而作为新一年欧洲经典车型的首个主要活动,Rétromobile week 在巴黎沃邦广场 (Place Vauban) 举行,也具备一些高格调经典汽车拍卖。而且你猜对了,它的亮点是1934年阿尔法罗密欧 Tipo B P3。

直至战后,1954 Osca MT4 1500 曾经是墨西哥经典 Carrera Panamericana 比赛的无敌参加者,报价是在97万5000到117万5000欧元之间。这一特殊的例子展示了尖端技术,也是首个在博洛尼亚生产线上生产的第一个双点火装置1500。

For over 46 years, the 1914 Vauxhall 25hp ‘Prince Henry’ Sports Torpedo was owned by one owner – Laurence Pomeroy Jnr. Sold recently at an auction at Bond Street, London for £516,700 (MYR2,864,702) including premium, it is acclaimed as the first true sports car in the world.

As the flagship car, its strikingly attractive styling and presentation had always drawn the largest admiring crowds on tours organised by its owner. It demands significant stature and is indeed uniquely built by established figures from the motoring world including Pomeroys Senior and Junior, Heal, Chambers, Clutton, Ridley and Long.

Its outstanding provenance provides a lasting heritage – a monumental piece from the past to the present. It is worthily taking its place high on the stage of the Worlds Great Cars – not only on the concours d’elegance lawns but in long distance motoring events where it will surely prove its Edwardian sporting credentials.

作为旗舰车,其引人入胜的造型和整体表现,在其拥有者组织的巡回演出中吸引了大量的观赏人群。它象征着重大意义,显得独一无二,并由来自汽车工业世界知名人物,包括Pomeroys Senior 和 Junior,Heal,Chambers,Clutton,Ridley 和 Long等所创造拥有。杰出的出身让它长久保持古迹价值,从过去到现在的巨大成就纪念品。在世界伟大的汽车舞台上获得高度重视-不仅在展示的草坪上,而且在长距离汽车活动中将证明其在爱德华时代的运动凭据。

漫长46年来,被誉为世界第一辆货真价实的跑车-1914年Vauxhall 25hp“亨利王子”运动鱼雷,由持有人Laurence Pomeroy Jnr. 珍藏。最近,伦敦 Bond Street 拍卖会上出现这辆历久弥新老爷跑车的身影,并售出51万6700英镑 (286万4702马币), 其中包括溢价。
