The Alfa Romeo 800 is an Italian heavy truck produced by Alfa Romeo between 1940 and 1947. It was first produced as a military version 800RE[3] and after the war as a civilian version. The military version was initially used only in the Italian Army ("Regio Esercito"), mainly in North Africa, Russia and occupied France.[4] The 800 was equipped with 8.7 L diesel engine with fuel injection, it could reach top speed of 50 kilometres per hour (31 mph).[1] There were also gas generator and gasoline models produced. A half track prototype version a CSEM 800RE (Centro Studi ed Esperienze della Motorizzazione - the Italian Army's vehicle research and development organization) was also made for Italian army.[5] Some of 800RE were also converted to German Army as Maultier, this vehicle had also tracks in rear.[6]
