In the 30s, "Carrozzeria Touring" coachworks built three oddly named cars:

1) Alfa Romeo 6c 2300 Turismo "Soffio di Satana" ("Satan's Breath")

2) Lancia Artena "Freccia di Belzebù" ("Devil's Arrow")

3) "Coppa del Diavolo" ("Devil's Cup")

I don't know anything about this last car, not even the chassis type...so any information will be
very appreciated.

And about those names...: I know that they came from Felice Bianchi Anderloni's mind (not to be credited rumors about Gabriele D'Annunzio involvement, even if the poet himself owned one of these cars) but I still ignore the real story behind them...

Thank you in advance!
