After winning the first two F1 World Championships, Alfa Romeo retired from GP races and from Sports races too in 1953. But in the 1960s Alfa Romeo took over Autodelta, the company founded by Carlo Chiti, and entrusted Chiti with its return to racing. Chiti started with the project and in 1967 the Alfa 33, a sports racer powered by a V8 2 liter engine, had its race debut. Fitted with a Berlinetta “Daytona” body, this example was a factory entry in the 1968 24 Hours of Daytona, 1968 and 1969 Targa Florio races. Since Alfa moved to the 3 liter class in 1969, the car was sold to Aldo Bardelli, who raced it extensively in Italian hill climbs from 1969 to 1971 and had it modified to Spider form by Autodelta. Later the car was part of the Peter Kaus’ Museo Rosso Bianco in Germany.
