This Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Zagato

In 1955, at the young age of only 25, racing driver Joakim Bonnier imported this 1900C SS Zagato into Sweden, and it wasn’t long before he took it to the track, entering the Alfa in the 1955 Swedish Grand Prix at Kristianstad, where it was displaying temporary Swedish license ‘A 2770’. Bonnier was early in his competition career, but his talent was evident, as he took victory at the grand prix!

One week later, on 14 August 1955, this car returned to the circuit, again with Bonnier behind the wheel, but this time at Karlskoga. Wearing race number 31, Bonnier took another class victory with this 1900C SS Zagato. Bonnier then sold the car to a friend, Carl Lohmander, in Stockholm, Sweden, who entered a race at the Roskilde Ring in Denmark, before inviting Bonnier to return back behind the wheel of the Alfa at the 1955 International Trophy race, held at Oulton Park at the end of August. This was Bonnier’s third race with this Zagato, and once again, he took class victory, wearing race number 95.

After Bonnier’s success, Lohmander competed with the car at several events, including the Avusrennen in Berlin, before the car was featured in the December 1955 edition of Motor-Revy magazine. The car has since remained in Sweden and Norway, continuing to compete at events, whilst also being featured in other magazines. Most recently, the car joined one of the foremost Alfa Romeo collections, where it has been maintained, regardless of cost, and regularly displayed at some of the world’s leading classic car events. The history file accompanying this car is fabulous, containing many period images of Joakim Bonnier competing with the car, including pictures of him receiving the winner’s trophy and garland at the 1955 Swedish Grand Prix!

As one of Zagato’s most celebrated designs, this Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Zagato is even more special thanks to its first owner, Formula One and sports car driver Joakim Bonnier, taking victory in every event in which he drove it.
