    What a great looking car it is!

    Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva - 1954

    The “2000 Sportiva” was designed in 1954 with the goal set by Alfa Romeo engineers to make a small series of high-performance cars suited for both road use and “Sport” category races. The two-litre twin camshaft four-cylinder engine delivered a power of 138 HP and was closely derived from the engine of the “1900”. It propelled the “Sportiva” to a top speed of 220 km/h, outstandingly fast for its day.

    The “2000 Sportiva” is technically advanced: it fits a five-speed gearbox and a De Dion rear suspension. The aluminium body designed by Bertone and made by Franco Scaglione, "father" of the nearly contemporary “Giulietta Sprint”, “Giulietta SS” and “33 Stradale”, is streamlined and very elegant. The rear window, rear end and boot of the “2000 Sportiva” will be successfully carried over to the “Sprint”, with the proportions obviously adapted.

    The driveability and performance of the “2000 Sportiva” were top in class and the car is remarkably pleasant and safe to drive even today. At the end of the sixties, the De Dion rear suspension will be used to create similar solutions for the 1972 Alfetta.

    Two units of the “2000 Sportiva” were made, one with metallic grey paintwork (owned by the Alfa Romeo Museum) and the other a super-classic red owned by a collector.

    Anyone knows what the bulge on the left-side of the car is for? Fuel tank is in the back, exhaust seems to be on the right side... or not?

    I'd like to know too, fuel filler is on the right too.
