The Aerodinamica Spider represents:
• The first supercar of “modern” sports car design.
• The first mid-engined car with central driving position (albeit Lancia deposited a patent for a central driven design in 1934).
• The first car designed to take account of newly developed principles of aerodynamics, to provide low-drag both externally and internally.
Wikipedia: In 1935, the brothers Gino and Oscar Jankovitz, started the project of a one-off mid-engine prototype on an own, ladder-type chassis, powered by an Alfa Romo 6C2300 Turismo engine (no. 700316 in 1934 from a Berlina). The brothers Jankovitz were inspired, for their prototype, called the Alfa Romeo Aerodinamica Spider.
