The Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 n.8 is the winning car of the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1932. The Italian manufacturer after the first victory of the year before, is the absolute favorite also for the new year, with the Mercedes, the Bugatti and the American Stutz ready to take advantage of any difficulties of Italian reds.

Luigi Chinetti and Raymond Sommer won with the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 n.8 the 24 hours of Le Mans 1932, for the Italian manufacturer was the second consecutive success.
The race, after the premature withdrawal of the challengers, was a predictable script with the absolute dominating Alfa, with the only withdrawal of the champions in office due to the breaking of the tank.
