Alfa Romeo RLN 2nd Series Spider

The RL was Merosi’s masterpiece and a competition version won the 1923 Targa Florio. Most RLN’s were fitted with heavy coachwork but this car has a light spider, torpedo body design. This RLN is 1 of 29 RL’s imported into Australia by the Australian Alfa Romeo agent, Over Seas motors, Melbourne, in 1922/1923. This is the earliest of 6 RL’s that are remaining in Australia. It has covered less than 1,000km since a complete restoration. During the restoration, it was fitted with twin Zenith carburettors and RL Targa Florio gear rations, which have considerably enhanced its performance.
