    They were experimental headlights for Italian tanks, lit up when the tank was shifted into reverse to reduce collisions.

    On the Alfa I would guess they are an attempt at streamlining.

    hello,

    thank you already once for the answers.
    Streamlines an explanation of the form, but why would be red in the colour?

    Hi Marek,

    I did some research :) I have the Simon Moore book about "the 2.3 legend" :all the 3 parts have a lot of pictures of 2.3 in the MM with covers but not a word about it. But after some googling I found a PDF about a 2.9 owners and he tells

    "it was a safety feature: the MM team found out that white light caused animal to freeze on the road and red did not effect them"

    Sounds plausible

    A possible reason is that red lights did not affect your night vision.
