The many faces of the Superflow


The many faces of the Superflow
‘The Warren Classic & Supercar Family Experience’ sounds like it concerns theme park rides, but it’s not that. This is a relaxing motoring event that only the Brits can come up with. Held at the Warren Estate stately home and gardens, located in postcard village of Woodham Walter, Essex, the place usually locates deer, rabbits and golf players. But this all changes once a year, when a parade of classics and supercars are casually parked onto the lawns of the estate. This year on the 24th of September. And they are not just your average classics coming over. Last year’s winner of the Concours d’Elegance was this wonderful Alfa 6C 2500 with body by Bertone.

One of the most spectacular cars that will make it to the concours field this year is another Alfa gem: the Pininfarina Superflow IV. Quite special indeed. This creature started life as a Colli-bodied racer that was driven to second place in the 1953 Mille Miglia by Fangio no less. What happened after that was least as remarkable, though. The car was taken over by Pininfarina, who rebodied it for the 1956 Turin motor show, changing the design dramatically to what you see here. And it doesn’t stop there. Pininfarina kept on showing the car to the next three Turin shows, too, every year with new body to reflect the latest trend, finally creating this fourth design in 1960 that has lasted until today. Want to see it for yourself? Then go to Woodham Walter. And bring your family with you. More information here.

Quoting Stuart Penketh:
Anyone know what happened to the other bodies ?


That's a good one. But the same body may also have been modified every year?

The car won Best of Show at famous Salon Prive at Blenheim Palace two weeks ago!
