Goodwood Festival of Speed: 100 years of Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo celebrated its centenary over the weekend, with a sculpture featuring the Alfa Romeo 8C supercar alongside one of only two P2 racers in existence in a four-leaf clover design.

This Alfa P2 won the first grand prix world championship in 1925 and is now estimated to be worth between £15-20 million.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta made its public debut over the weekend, along with more than 50 of the Italian marque’s more historic cars from its Museo Storic historic collection in Milan.

The annual ‘Central Feature’ sits in front of Goodwood house and is always a popular attraction with visitors. Last year’s statue celebrated 100 years of Audi and featured the 1937 Auto Union streamliner alongside an Audi R8 V10.

What do you think about the new sculpture? Do you like it or do you think it’s all a bit too similar to Audi’s effort from 2009?
