The Pebble Beach Car Guide had this to say about this Alfa Romeo,

This Alfa Romeo (1361.00128) began life as a race car with a very different coupe body built by Carrozzeria Colli. It was driven by Juan Manuel Fangio to second place in the 1953 Mille Miglia and afterward became a development car for various Pinin Farina design studies. The Turin coach builder fitted four different bodies on the chassis between 1956 and ’60: First it was presented as the Superflow in Turin with Plexiglas front fender caps and a wraparound windshield with a full Plexiglas canopy and gullwing roof panels. Later that year it was shown as the Superflow II at the Paris Auto Salon.

In 1959, the same chassis was restyled and shown again as the Spyder Super Sport in Geneva, and a year later the last body, named Coupe Super Sport Speziale, was also presented at Geneva. It is in this final configuration that the car exists today.

It must get hot in this car with all of the glass. Either a good air conditioning system is installed or this car is driven only at night!
