Alfa Romeo “RM”, La Zagato, 1925
Using many mechanical and chassis parts from the RL model, Alfa Romeo launched an economic version of its flagship car in 1923. Designed more as a family use rather than a sports model, the RM had a 4 cylinder engine directly derived from the 6-cylinder fitted in the RL.
The car exhibited at the museum is fitted with a body built by “Zagato” from Milan, the body shop founded by Ugo Zagato in 1919, and has been kept unaltered over the years. In 2003 it won the important Louis Vuitton Classic elegance award, in the Veteran and Vintage category, and won the Special Award from the Jury for its excellent state of preservation. This car is practical and elegant as a formal torpedo with the sporting style and lightness typical of a Zagato creation, features that made the name of the Milanese coachbuilder successful throughout the world.
