1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Zagato 5th Series
These legendary cars, produced between 1929 and 1932 owe its victories to its outstanding performance, exceptional torque, accurate steering, powerful braking and superb roadholding. This beautiful Zagato bodied two-seater Spyder is a very original example with matching body stamps and part numbers. It was last restored in the early 1990’s by the present owner, having the front wings replaced and retaining the originals. The distinctive red and black two-tone paintwork has stood the testimony of time over the last 30 years, a credit to the restorers. Superbly maintained over the years. It successfully completed the Madeira Rally 1997-1998 and the Mille Miglia in 2000, 2002 with the current owners. 1,752 cc DOHC supercharged inline six-cylinder engine with S.U. carburetor, a period modification approved by Thompson and Taylor of Brooklands, four-speed manual transmission, front and rear live axle suspension with leaf springs. A replacement head supplied by JSWL was fitted in 2008 with the original retained.

Currently UK registered and has a copy of the FIVA identity card issued in 1999. Welcome at many major historical events, still on the button and ready to drive away.
