You can’t say that Alfa Romeo isn’t pulling out all the stops to make sure that their 100th anniversary becomes as memorable as it can possibly be. Deservedly so, living to celebrate a full century is an achievement in its own right and Alfa is living it up by celebrating another one of their brand’s historic milestones: the 60th anniversary of the brand’s 1-2-3 finish at the first-ever F1 European Championship race. This race was held 60 years ago this coming May 13.
To commemorate the occasion, Alfa rolled out one of the cars that participated in the historic race - the Alfa Romeo 158 F1 Racer - to have a meet-and-greet with the brand’s latest pride and joy, the Mito Quadrifoglio Verde. It’s an unlikely pairing, but one that is steeped in history with both cars playing important roles in the brand’s continued success after being in the business for 100 years.
According to Alfa, the photo of these two vehicles - the MiTo and the 158 F1 racer - will be part of a bigger "visual celebration" that can be seen at the brand’s dedicated site, alfacentenary.co.uk.
