Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Alfa Romeo 8c 2900B 1st Mille Miglia 1947 This well finished model of the winner of the first post-war Mille Miglia race raises an interesting question to which we have devoted rather a lot of time. The model first, and the front windscreen pillars and roof look a little heavy but otherwise the shape of this magnificent Touring coupe looks pretty good and the race number decals are accurately placed. The car is modelled as it started the event with the rear wheel spats in place, these being removed fairly early on to speed up wheel changes. The paint finish is excellent and the fine etched trim is also nicely done. But is that paint the right colour? Previous models of this car have depicted it in a dark blue! None of the many Mille Miglia references that we have mention colour so we turn to Simon Moore’s “The Immortal 2.9”. In the first edition it is suggested initially that the car was dark blue when it appeared at the 1938 Paris show and then a later advert is quoted as saying it was smoke grey, the colour that the car has been restored in. The second edition (with the benefit of twenty years more research) says that the grey was a 6C on the same stand and that this car was likely red.
