"The cross is warped in a sequence of number one figures, developing in a perspective as to represent the passing of time and giving a dynamic twist to the number 111," said Alfa Romeo.

Another nod to Alfa Romeo's history will be present on the nosecones of the C41 car, reminiscent of the 'trilobe', a shape that can be found on the grilles of their range of road cars – as you can see in the picture gallery above.

The Alfa Romeo Museum near Milan will also have a range of activities this weekend, while the marque have promised "parades, special exhibitions and celebrations" across their various car clubs to celebrate the anniversary.
