Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva Bertone 1954 by Matrix
Although intended for production and based on standard Alfa Romeo mechanical components, the Sportiva never made it beyond the prototype stage with just two coupes and two spiders built. A shame as it was a pretty machine, the Bertone design being built in aluminium over a space-frame chassis. The car modelled is the one which survives in Alfa’s museum and is smartly finished in silver. The wire wheels could be more delicate, but the other detailing is excellent, the fine etched window frames even including catch detail on them.

From the original creators of the Neo range, this resincast series offers a wide range of mostly road car subjects. Some are very familiar classics but we also see plenty of very rare and usual machines ranging from Maharajah's Rolls Royces to Citroen and Volvo limousines! Overall casting quality is excellent, paint finishes usually to a very high standard and plenty of fine etch used for small trim. Wire wheels on some subjects can be a little unconvincing but otherwise very consistent. Made in China.
