Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Le Mans 1938 A new arrival from Stephen Barnett is always a treat to see and usually these super-detailed masterpieces are built as customer commissions, so itís rare that we have one for stock. The subject is the magnificent Alfa Romeo coupe which was dominating at Le Mans in 1938 and nearly 100 miles ahead of the opposition when a tyre failure with an hour to go caused enough damage to force retirement. A wafer thin hinged bonnet and removable side panels reveal complete engine detail, at the rear the boot is hinged to the spare wheel and in the cabin we see not only all of the controls and realistic seats that we might expect, but also the straw hat which Sommer was famously seen wafting himself with to keep cool as he thundered along Le Mansí long straights! A rare opportunity.
