Most of the 6C 2300 chassis were clothed by local Milan coach-builders Touring and Castagna with a wide variety of open and closed bodies. A fair few chassis were also sent to the Turin based workshop of Pinin Farina. Here they received some of the most extravagant coachwork of all. The featured 6C 2300 B Pescara is a great example of the emphasis on stream-lined shapes in the second half of the 1930s, which was particularly popular at Pinin Farina.

This one-off machine is easily distinguishable by the lavish use of chrome trim and its wind cheating elements like the cowled radiator and covered rear wheels. The design is finished off by a small fin on the rear end. Completed early in 1937, the Pinin Farina Berlinetta 'Speciale' was successfully shown at that year's Turin Concours d'Elegance where it won the first price in its class. Fully restored, the unique Alfa reappeared at the 2008 Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza, where it is pictured above.
