History: Alfa Romeo modified about 100 of their successful Sprint Veloce Coupes for competition. They were lightened with aluminum front hood, trunk and doors. Plexi-glass on the windows. Then high-performance build and tuning on the engine. Compression, cylinder head, Weber carburetors, exhaust headers for all improved performance. The Alleggerita competition versions went on to compete and win in their category throughout Europe and the USA.

This Alfa Romeo was raced by a well-known American living in Mexico City, Freddie Van Buren. He had numerous wins, including a class win at the 1958 Sebring 12-Hours. The car then passes through a series of owners, many of them noted Alfa Romeo collectors.
