A Little History

Milan-based Alfa Romeo has been called the Ferrari of the 20’s and 30’s. In fact, Enzo Ferrari worked at Alfa as a young man before founding his namesake manufacturer. With thousands of full-time artisans, mechanics and administrators dedicated to the construction of only few cars, Alfa Romeo-made supercars that represented the height of artistic, automotive and technological prowess.

Unfortunately, and perhaps predictably, the company fell into financial trouble, was scaled down, and eventually absorbed by Fiat.

Many high-performance cars existed at the time but none of them could match the performance standards set by the 6C 2500. The 6C was the last and fastest of Alfa’s famous six cylinder cars, capable of reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour thanks to a lighter body, increased engine capacity and improved fuel feed.
