Constructed in partnership with Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN, the C42 is built to order, with only a limited number available globally.
Traditionally built exclusively for F1 teams and partners, this limited production has never before been made available to the fans like this. The C42 race car is part of the new generation of F1 cars which has been built under new regulations. Originally to be introduced in 2021, these new regulations were instead introduced in 2022. So far, the C42 has been performing well on track, with both drivers scoring points at the season opener, and Bottas finishing in the top ten at multiple races.
This exquisite show car dons the striking red and white liveries and features the sponsorship branding that the race cars driven by Bottas and Zhou boast.
The 2022 Show Car has been specifically designed for show car purposes and not for competition and has been constructed to withstand the load's exerted for show car purposes. The chassis is constructed from a mixture of pre-pregcarbon fibre and pre-preg glass fibre, designed to represent the real car whilst being durable and able to take the load exerted through the 4 axles.
Manufactured using the same process as running F1 cars. Utilising official 2022 Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLENCAD data, composite tooling is used to create patterns, which are then used to create carbon fibre moulds via an autoclave. Each mould is then used to create each specific part of the car’s bodywork, with each piece of bodywork then created using the materials previously mentioned.
