This is the first of the two Colli Spider bodied 6C 3000 CMs constructed. The pictured Spider was driven to victory in the Supercortemaggiore race at Merano in 1953 by Juan Manuel Fangio; the type's only win. The second car used a modified, shorter chassis and three-litre engine and was prepared for the 1954 Supercortemaggiore. Sadly the short-wheelbase car was destroyed during its first test and before it could be immortalized in pictures.

Fangio's winning machine was retained by the factory and served as a test-bed for disc brakes in 1955. Today, the car is still owned by Alfa Romeo, who show the car in their excellent Museo Storico as well as at various events around the world. It is seen above during the 2006 Retromobile show and the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
