Alfa Romeo 6C Will Return
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.
Now strong rumors are coming from Italy that the 6C will definitely be resurrected in 2015 sharing the Maserati Alfieri platform. Power in both the Alfieri and the 6C will come from a version of the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 currently installed in Maserati’s Ghibli and Quattroporte.
The look of the 6C suggests a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, plenty of gorgeous curves and the brand’s long-lived shield grille flanked by LED headlights up front. It will definitely be a great looking car with impressive performance is production sees light in 2015.
