The Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 is a car that participated at the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1932. The car was designed by Vittorio Jano. 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.

The French Raymond Sommer team with Luigi Chinetti and Raymond Sommer at the wheel of the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 n.8 winner 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. In second place came the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 n.11 driven by Franco Cortese and Gian Battista Guidotti with a gap of two laps, while in third place the Talbot AV105 n.6 of Tim Rose-Richards and Brian Lewis with a gap of thirty-eight laps.
