RM Amelia 2015 Preview – 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Spider by Zagato



 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Spider by Zagato

Meet the most successful Alfa Romeo racecar of all time.

This 6C 1750 Gran Sport Spider by Zagato is the ultimate evolution on the Alfa Romeo race platform of the day, refined and tweaked with the help of poached Fiat engineering talent. The goal? To win races decisively.

And win it did. This tilt-radiator design helped to keep the supercharged engine cool by shifting more air through its vanes, and also creating less aerodynamic drag. A one-two punch.

That and the body by Zagato certainly helped the car look cool – both then and now.
