I watch a ton of Old Race films and this car is one of the ones that dominated early California road racing. What an amazing car. The side pipes the low stance the head faring the sports car look. This car has it all for me, now if I only had 2 million bucks to buy it. Though I am sure this will only continue to go up in value and is a worthy investment if you ave the coin.
1951 Siata Daina GS Spider, For sale is the only surviving SIATA Grand Sport Spider in aluminium. Many steel bodied cars were produced but only 3 were built in aluminium. This car is much bigger than the well known SIATA 300 BCs. This car is highly eligible for any historic motoring event e.g. Mille Miglia or Monaco Historic Grand Prix. This car has participated in the Mille Miglia in 2008 and 2009 and is highly eligible for 2012. Entries for 2012 are open. This particular car has some distinctive figures such as fender lip flares, that allow the use of larger borrani wheels. The engine is 1500cc, which also was an option. Most of the Siatas had the smaller 1400cc engine. The combination of the lightweight and the bigger engine made this Siata a very fast car for its days.
Grand Sport Spiders were preferred race cars in the US at the beginning of the 1950s, they achieved many first places e.g. Sebring and others.
This Siata Grand Sport Spider might have been ordered by an American race driver. It is supposed, that delivery of the car was delayed, so the original order was cancelled and the car sold otherwise.
The first proven race history can be found in the 1980s. The Siata Grand Sport Spider in its current condition now is a very constant and fast historic racing car with the Italian style of the early 1950s. Details of the technical improvements on request. History file on request. Part exchange accepted.
I dont think I have seen one of these cars before, Has a nice look to it. Pretty rough but for someone with the knowhow to restore, might be a great deal.

Seller Writes: Originally hired in the 1920′s to design a race winning machine for Alfa Romeo, engineer Vittorio Jano was reassigned to road car development after the company retired from racing at the end of two very successful seasons. The first road car he produced was the 6C 1500 launched early in 1927. While the six cylinder engined Alfa was designed specifically for road use, the higher performance versions proved to be very competitive on the track. In fact the 6C won the Mille Miglia for three years running. Encouraged by the success of the 6C, Alfa Romeo brought out Jano’s old P2 Grand Prix car for 1930 and commissioned him to design a brand new sports racer and GP car for 1931. The new 8C 2300 sports racer has gone into history as one of the finest and most successful racing cars ever constructed. One of the reasons the 8C was so successful was the nimble and lightweight chassis. Between 1931 and 1934 a total of 188 chassis were produced in three series, many of which were raced in period.
This particular car is a fine replica of this VERY RARE $3,000,000 automotive legend. The details and patina make this car a true one of a kind.the right and rare dual fold down windshield adds to the original look of the Alfa.
the leather straps and genuine wire wheels, this car has the million dollar look for under $20,000!! Breathtaking looks and it runs GREAT too!!

This car is not to be compared to the other replicas out there. With this one the beauty is in the details, the vintage racing style lettering and decals, the authentic spare tire on the side, the leather shrouds on the sides of the front wheels, the aged patina, the authentic lights and the other details make this car a real collectors find!!
