Alfa Romeo 6c 2500 - 1933
In 1933, alfa romeo whose finances had always been somewhat shaky was nationalized by the italian government. From then on, the companys production of passenger cars took a back seat to prewar activities, which were concentrated in two areas: Military vehicles and aircraft engines.

over and above its racing and sporting models, built in tiny numbers, the company confined itself to the limited construction of a single-passenger model, the 1933 6c 2300. In 1939, an increase in engine sizes brought that model to 2.5 litres, making it the 6c 2500. While it was built in conservative numbers, there were many variants, from the mille miglia berlinetta to the colonial tourer and even a ministerial limousine. Bodiers ranged from alfa itself to pinin farina to touring.
more like delahayes than bugattis
despite beautiful twin-cam engines, the six-cylinder alfas of the thirties werent in the same league as the companys mighty supercharged straight-eights (or even the sixes of the twenties). These were unexciting, rather heavy
cars, more like delahayes than bugattis. With proper preparation, however, they could log excellent performance ratings. Production on the six-cylinder alfas was resumed after world war ii, and they were built with relatively few changes until 1952
The fastest catalogue version of the alfa romeo 6c 2500 was this aerodynamic coupe, bodied by touring on a sport chassis. The 172 cars built varied in style.
