In late 1955, Alfa Romeo updated its classic 1900 one last time, creating the ‘final flowering’ of its 1900 series. Henceforth known as the Super Sprint, the 1900 series still featured specialized examples of coachwork by and others, while Touring of Milan continued to build the factory-specified coupé bodywork. The 1900C Super Sprint’s key distinguishing feature was a revised version of the engine, with increased displacement from 1,884 cc to 1,975 cc, a higher compression ratio, twin Weber carburettors and four valves per cylinder.

As seen on the offered 1900C, Touring introduced a new version of its prior 1900 coachwork for the Super Sprint, accommodating the shorter chassis with one window per side rather than the outgoing coupé’s two-window configuration. The new Touring design was known as the Tipo 4, or three-window coupé, and it eliminated the prior car’s rear-fender bulges in favour of straight, streamlined haunches. It is thought that chassis number 10160 is one of fewer than 200 examples of the 1900C Super Sprint that remain in existence.
