Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

FCA #heritage and Alfa Romeo are backing the Japanese Concours d'Elegance, which will be held from March 29 to April 3 at the Nijō Castle, with two masterpieces of the past and the present - a 1900 C52 Coupé, popularly known as the "Disco Volante", and the modern #giuliaquadrifoglio.

Nijō Castle, the 17th century Unesco world #heritage site in Kyoto, will be hosting a Concours d'Elegance that will bring together some of the most prestigious and emblematic classic cars, from March 29 to April 3. Naturally, #fcaheritage, the department created to protect and promote the history of the Italian brands of the FCA Group, could not miss the appointment. #fcaheritage together with Alfa Romeo are actively backing the #event created on the initiative of artist Hidemoto Kimura which aims at repeating the remarkable success of the first edition held in 2016. So, #fcaheritage will be present with a masterpiece of the past which is usually kept in the Alfa Romeo Museum - dubbed the "Time Machine", playing on the Italian word that means both machine and car - in Arese (MI). It is the 1900 C52 Coupé, popularly known as the "Disco Volante" which will be displayed hors concours as guest of honour in the exhibition dedicated to Carrozzeria Touring. The #giuliaquadrifoglio, the car which embodies the new paradigm of Alfa Romeo, made of thrilling performance and exclusivity, will be by its side to reassert the indissoluble special link that ties a great history and a bright future.
