The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Competizione: winning elegance

The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Competizione – the gallery showcases a 1948 model presented at the 2003 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este – is part of the great 6C family, manufactured by the world-famous company between 1927 and 1950.

Approximately 2,800 models of the 2500 series were made, starting just before the end of the Second World War; the Competizione (“competition”) version launched in 1946.

Due to the lack of suitable materials after the war, the beautiful car had to wait another couple of years before it could compete on the racetrack; it made up for the wait, and achieved striking results between 1948 and 1950. It won the Pescara Grand Prix in 1949, placed third in the 1949 and 1950 Mille Miglia, and was awarded the Targa Florio in 1950.
