History :

Evolution of the “6C 1500”, the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 is a true myth in the history of Alfa Romeo and motor racing in general.

The new Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 from the late 1920s was offered with four body types: Sport, Saloon, Torpedo and Spider, to which were added the Super Sport. With the arrival of the 4th and 5th series, the range is further enriched thanks to the spider and convertible versions called Gran Sport and characterized by the use of the volumetric compressor.

On the chassis of the most powerful 6C 1750 Gran Sport, the Milanese coachbuilder Zagato made several sports spiders which would become famous.

The engine, designed by Vittorio Jano and which is an evolution of the previous “6C 1500” engine, is a 1752 cc in-line six-cylinder, double overhead camshaft and supercharged by a rotary lobe compressor.

At the start, the inline six-cylinder had a power of 85 horsepower transformed into 102 horsepower in the “Testa Fissa” versions. With a weight of 840 kg, this 1750 GS reaches 170 km/h.

The famous 6C 1750 Gran Sport is precisely a model bodied by Zagato.

Its notoriety still resonates today in glossy magazines and on the posters of the biggest events evoking historic races.

Its muzzle with its three red headlights is in the hearts of all enthusiasts, and not only Alfists.
