Alfas evoke strong opinions. An automobile critic once complained about the 1934 alfa romeo 8c 2300: at full throttle, the noise is almost terrifying.

Good day, sunshine
ah, the perfect roadster. It was loud, and when the 16-inch drum brakes were applied at high speeds, the front end felt like it was going to chatter loose. There were only .75 inches of travel in the semielliptical spring suspension. Resulting in a jarring ride. The 8c 2300 sprinted from 0 to 30 in a neck-snapping 2.5 seconds, but quick turns frequently resulted in unscheduled 360-degree views of the countryside, and the 2.3-liter powerplant got less than 10 mpg. Built for speed, it was a two-and-half-ton, 115mph european vacation.
chrome to burn
like the 1931 monza-type engine before it and the 8c 2900 that followed, the 2300 had a gorgeous powerplant. Eight cylinders were divided into two four-cylinder blocks, each mounted under a chrome-covered crankcase. Much of the cooling equipment was also chromed. The supercharger, perched over the
beautifully enameled exhaust manifold, took the driver from 0 to 100 in just under 30 seconds
