The Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 was one of the most popular models produced by Alfa and also very successful in competition throughout the 1930s, originally launched in 1929 as an evolution of the 1928 Mille Miglia winning 6C 1500

The 6C 1750 enjoyed a highly successful sporting career including a 1-2-3 finish at the Mille Miglia with the winning car of Tazio Nuvolari averaging more than 100 km/h in addition to top results at the Targa Florio, the Tourist Trophy and Spa 24 hours in the early 1930’s

Production of the Sport and Super Sport lasted only two years and many 6Cs were made with sports saloon and drophead coupe bodywork, while the fastest and most attractive were the short chassis cars bodied by Zagato which remain the most desirable

This series four ‘Gran Turismo’ example was constructed in 1930 and first registered in London in May 1930. Having remained the UK its entire life and featuring in a number of significant collections over the decades, the car was restored in the early 1980s by highly respected pre-war Alfa racer Rodney Felton, known for his heroic racing exploits with both 8C and Tipo B in VSCC events

During the restoration the Alfa was fitted with the highly attractive Zagato type Spider coachwork it wears today, beautifully hand crafted in aluminium, and rebuilt to ‘Gran Sport’ configuration with addition of a period correct supercharger. Following the restoration the Alfa formed part of a large private collection displayed in a museum in the Isle of Man, housed in a converted cinema 

This 6C 1750GT is the perfect eligible vintage entry to many of the world’s most prestigious tours, rallies and race meetings. With its handsome Zagato style coachwork, original chassis and matching number engine, this example offers exciting pre-war Italian motoring at its finest and is fitted with a new set of Blockley tires and recent re-commissioning for regular use
