EFFETTO PRAHO

April 1, 2018

STARTING POINT
That of the 1960 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint Praho (Carrozzeria Touring), chassis no. AR10205*00001, is the case of a car with a well-known history.

RESEARCH
During our research, aimed at validating the known elements, an unknown detail emerged: in a rediscovered photo of the car exhibition at the 1960 Salone internazionale dell'Automobile di Torino, a sign appears on the right rear window with the words "Effetto Praho", with reference to a possible aerodynamic effect of the convex shape of the rear window, inspired by the famous Malaysian boat.
