'Open Bonnets' at the Alfa Romeo Museum

At the weekend the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese showed itself to visitors in a decidedly unusual way: with ‘Open Bonnets’. The limelight was therefore not taken by the beautiful bodywork of many of the cars in their collection, but rather by what they hide underneath. The framework, engines, the ‘heart’ of each vehicle was revealed, everything you cannot usually see.

This is a different and new way of admiring cars. The sleek and streamlined silhouette of the Carabo, was transformed for the occasion and raised its unique vertical scissor doors, the 33 Stradale prototype opened its body designed by Franco Scaglione to display its drivetrain directly derived from the races. The huge bonnets of the Tipo 33, were also lifted to show the powerful engines that reaped so many victories for Alfa. These were just some of the highlights of the unique event at the Alfa Romeo Museum.
