The Alfa Romeo 1900 Super Sprint: silver screen and royal collections

This gallery showcases an Alfa Romeo 1900 Super Sprint coupé: a model made in 1957 by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, which worked with Pininfarina to produce various versions of the splendid car manufactured between 1950 and 1959.

One 1900 Super Sprint had a role in Carlo Vanzina’s “Anni ’60”, an Italian movie that makes a number of cinema references, including one to the iconic “Il sorpasso” (“The Easy Life”) by Dino Risi, which prominently featured a Lancia Aurelia B4.

Some say even the Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi loved the 1900 Super Sprint coupé, and happily included it in his collection of three hundred deluxe vehicles.
