Information

Alfa Romeo 12C Prototipo (2900A)

This car was used to develop the most important engine in history the Colombo V12.

This engine changed the course of motorsport history. This V12 has a 60-degree vee and a single camshaft, quite unlike the four-camshaft 12C engines that Alfa Romeo developed for its Grand Prix cars in the 1930s. During this time in the enigne was improved by none other then Ferdinand Porsche. The Stuff Colombo helped develop in this car were carried over to Ferrari in the post war-era, leading to the racing dynasty we know today.
