This Alfa Romeo 3000 ‘Disco Volante’ is utterly unique

The Alfa Romeo 3000 ‘Disco Volante’ was intended to be the Italian marque’s rival to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR, but a crash at Monza in 1954 left the car wrecked and driver Consalvo Sanesi badly burned. A problem with the steering is cited as the reason for the crash, but the result was that Alfa Romeo, at the time not cash rich, pulled the plug on the project.
