Completed in early 1934, this 8C 2300 was delivered as a rolling chassis to Joseph Figoni's Paris workshop. Here the car was completed with a very elegant Cabriolet body. The first owner quickly sold the car on to Raoul Calvayrac, who managed to hide the Alfa Romeo on his estate during the German occupation. In the early 1950s, the Figoni Cabriolet was brought to the United States and subsequently bought by Ohioan Jim Ibold. He cherished the car for decades and for most of those years it shared a garage with his 8C 2900. Ibold preserved the Alfa Romeos and only replaced parts when strictly necessary.

Ibold eventually sold his two 8Cs and the new owner of the 8C 2300 brought it to the 2005 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Although it was one of the last original, running 8C 2300s in existence, he eventually did submit it to a full restoration. Five years later, and now sporting its original colours, the Figoni Cabriolet returned to Pebble Beach. It was later also shown at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
