Cars from 1920 to 1950 - The golden age of the car
Alfa Roméo Type 6C
Body style: roadster
There was healthy competition between the leading Italian makes in the first half of the 1920s, which encouraged each manufacturer to develop a unique identity. Alfa Romeo focused chiefly on sportscars, particularly with the arrival of a talented engineer from Fiat, Vittorio Jano.
The 6C 1750 is the archetype of the “sporty” Alfa, an image that the Milanese firm was aiming to project with each of its models, often with great success. It had excellent race results (Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, 24 Hours of Le Mans etc.) either with factory prototypes or cars driven by privateers, like this example, Code 1122. Alfa Romeo’s reputation continued to shine, on and off the racetracks.
