After World War II, Alfa Romeo resumed automobile production by continuing with its latest development from the pre-war lineup, the 6C 2500. The model, introduced in 1939, had an engine displacement of almost 2.5 liters, and the Super Sport version had a shortened 2,700-millimeter wheelbase chassis and a triple-carbureted intake.
Touring built the standard coachwork for these highly desirable sport saloons, utilizing their signature lightweight Superleggera technique of welding an aluminum body to a small-diameter tube-frame. The 6C 2500 is widely regarded as one of the most technologically advanced mechanical platforms of the immediate post-war era and has become one of Alfa Romeo’s most sought-after vintage models, seamlessly combining performance, style, and luxury.
