Alfa Romeo

Born from a factory built by Alexandre Darracq near Milan to build cars out of French supplied parts, the struggling concern was taken over by Anomima Lombardo Fabbrica Automobil in 1909. It quickly established itself as a major sports car manufacturer when Nicolà Romeo joined in 1915. It struggled with the high cost of sports car development through the 1930's and was eventually taken over by the Italian government. Mussolini, seeking prestige through track success, would oversee the company take out 11 Mille Miglia wins through the remainder of the 1930's.
