1921 Alfa Romeo G1 to be auctioned in January 2018

Premium car manufacturer, Alfa Romeo, will auction its first ever model to be built, the 1921 G1, in January 2018. The 1921 Alpha Romeo G1 holds a lot of historical importance especially when only 52 units were produced and this is the only one which is functional today. Moreover, the vehicle comes from an era when the Alfa Romeo racing team was one of the most dominating forces of motorsport. Reports indicate that the Alpha Romeo might fetch anything over $1.5 million (Rs 97.62 crores).


Under the hood, the 1921 Alfa Romeo G1 was powered by a 6.3-litre straight six engine which generated an impressive 70bhp of power, compared to other cars which produced much lower power figures. The vehicle was quite fast on the race tracks in its prime time considering the fact that it could attain a top speed of 130kmph. 


Reports indicate that the 1921 Alfa Romeo G1 with the chassis 6018, has spent most of its life in Australia. The vehicle was left unused for a while before it was discovered in 1940s. It was only in 1965 that Alfa Romeo collector, Ross Flewell-Smith decided to buy it and restored it in the 1970s to its original form. The vehicle was brought out in the early 2000 has gone ahead to earn a series of awards at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concourse.
