    A 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta due for auction in 2019 could break the £20 million barrier. Artcurial says the car, due to be sold at its Rétromobile sale on 8 February, represents the flagship Alfa of the pre-war era.

    Artcurial and RM Sotheby’s both boasted of strong Rétromobile sales, but it was a pre-war Alfa Romeo that stole the headlines. A 1939 8C-2900B Touring Berlinetta comfortably outsold anything else during the week by fetching €16,745,600 at Artcurial’s 8-10 February show – three times more than the Ferrari F40 LM that fell just short of €5million (€4,842,500) at RM Sotheby’s.
