Right about just about all, Jarama, except...
Those wonderful Italians, who obviously had their hearts and minds in the right place, continued development of the cars well into World War II, while the rest of Europe was knocking seven bells out of each other.
In an interview in 1986 (I dig deep for answers to these questions), Consalvo Sanesi reported that the cars were not finally put away until 1943!
The story has done the rounds that the Alfa Romeos were stored for safe keeping in a cheese factory. Not true according to Sanesi. It was a boatbuilders hut and a lingerie factory.
I do so love the Italians...
