This Tipo 26B is fitted with a roadster body and was the last to come of the production line. It differs only slightly from the 1927 model which had a longer wheelbase.

This Tipo 26B was raced for over a decade and winning races as late as 1935, when this car won the Berne Grand Prix. The owner of the car was reluctant to stop driving the car after its Grand Prix career and drove it on the public roads until 1966 even though it was a full blooded Grand Prix racer.

It now resides in the Musee National de l'Automobile (former Schlumpf Collection) in Mulhouse, France.
