The Alfa 1900 was born in 1950 and marked a real industrial revolution for the Biscione, determining a clear gap from the more opulent pre-war models, but without giving up the glamor, thanks to the proposals of the great coachbuilders. From that moment on, the Portello manufacturer began to change its face.
The Alfa Romeo 1900 made its debut during the 1950 Turin Motor Show, after which the firsts models were made, still in an almost artisanal way, but the road to mass production was already cleared.
It is the first Alfa car with a body integrated directly into the chassis, and most important, the first time and first Alfa Romeo car to abandon the 6 or 8 cylinder engine, for a totally new 4 cylinder DOHC, which will be used in all the following evolutions.
This car, during its whole career has been made precious and more beautiful aesthetically. The engine was also improved, peaking with 115 HP of the TI Super model, capable of 180 kph.
But the 1900 Coupè Super Sprint also let itself be seduced by the skilled hands of the most famous coachbuilders of the time, such as Pinifarina, Boano, Ghia, Bertone, Zagato and Touring.
In this case, the Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS Touring was assembled by the Touring bodywork and the second series was built according to the "Superleggera" method, which provided for the bodywork, a structure on which very light aluminum panels were fixed.
During those years the car won the "Targa Florio" and the editions of 1953 and 1954 during the "Stella Alpina": for this reasont the car was advertised by Alfa Romeo with the slogan "The family car that wins races".
It is said that among all the cars of the Shah of Persia Cars Collection, the Alfa Romeo 1900 Coupè Super Sprint was the "favorite" for its class and demeanor.
This car was a true style icon and performance, and still today it continues to appeal to many collectors and gentlemen drivers, who take it to drive in historical re-enactments, and those who prefer look after it jealously in your garage.
The 1900 CSS is an high-end collection car with higher and higher prices.
This absolute beautiful Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS 3rd Series, also called "Giulietta", is one of the first made.
The car has been restored about 30 years ago when it was taken from a Classic Cars collector. According to the original papers of the car, the car was delivered new to Pavia, and then sold in the 60s to a gentelman driver in Milan, then purchased by the last owner that kept the car jealously until he was alive.
The car we offer is one of the only 299 made between 1954 and 1955.
