I don't think that the car is patterned after either an Alfa or a BMW. It is simply a generic style of the mid-1930's, like all other Marklin toys of the period. I have some large Marklin construction automobiles that some call "Horch" , but it could be lots of cars really!
They use the same hardware as on the rail-racing cars. Ours at the LASCM are in mint condition but have no drivers, so I am looking for repros.

A view onto the zonkers, of which invention was later claimed (and wrongly patented in the UK) by at least two British inventors in the early 1950's:

The "Alfabmwwhatever" car could be anything:
