Best of Show at the Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille. This Alfa Romeo 8C2900 was one of the fastest sports cars in the world pre-WWII even when clothed with the gorgeous Superleggera coachwork by Touring of Milan. (It was still actively raced post-WW2 in the USA and won the 1948 Watkins Glen gran prix) […]
Alfa Romeo never built an 8C2900 in this form. Usually they were either a berlinetta (coupe) or in a spyder (convertible) configuration built upon the 8C’s series of frame design with the famous dual supercharged inline eight cylinder engine. It might not be 1935… but who knows what the future might bring forth?
A quick cnc milled “proof” of the pre-WWII vintage Ducati SSR logo badge. (2nd iteration) No chamfers or cleanup on this as pointless to spend the additional machine time. More on this project upcoming as more validation subassemblies are completed before the big assembly is machined from a 35lb block of aluminum (times 2).
For a 1930’s era Ducati powered superbike — the current modern logo will not work emblazoned upon the fuel tank itself. Thus starting with a CAD adaption of the pre-WWII (electronics) Ducati logo and will tweak with it further upcoming and make sure I can properly CNC machine it for the final deliverable project.
