During the mid-1930s, Castagna clothed four Astura chassis with this striking Aerodinamico Coupe body-style. The featured example is the only one of these four using a short wheelbase frame. The body fitted is believed to have actually been originally built for an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 chassis in 1934. A year later, it was placed on this Astura frame. It was subsequently raced at the Pescara 24 Hours and shown at the Concorso d'Eleganza Coppo d'Oro Principessa di Piemonte. It has been suggested that both appearances were on behalf of the son of Benito Mussolini. Later in its life, it joined Peter Kaus' Rosso Bianco Collection. By that time, it had been re-painted red. During the mid-2000s, the entire collection was sold and this unique Astura joined a distinguished Dutch collection. For the new owner, it has been carefully restored with much time spent to find the correct shade of green that had been originally applied. The work was finally completed late in 2015, and in 2016, the car was awarded the Copa d'Oro at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
