First things first, Goodwood Revival is always bursting at the seams with exquisite pieces of automotive engineering. Beauty is everywhere. So when a car prompts animalistic, audible moans, even a bit of lip-biting, you know it’s a looker. In the case of this 1938 Alfa Romeo 158, or ‘Alfetta’ – meaning little in Italian – it was my pick of all entrants at the 2021 Revival. Admiring the workmanship of the build up close reinforces that opinion tenfold. It is sublime.
