Powered by a 2.5 litre version of Vittorio Jano's 6 cylinder engine, the 6C 2500 was available with various wheelbases. The chassis featured all round independent suspension with wishbones at the front and swing-axles at the rear. The top-of-the line model was the short-wheel base ss model launched in 1939. At 2750 mm it did not only have a shorter wheelbase than the other models, it was also equipped with a high-compression 105bhp version of the 6C engine.

Complementing the Super Sport, were the Turismo and Sport models. The difference between the two was mainly the wheelbase, which was 3250 and 3000 mm respectively. Both versions were fitted with a single Carburettor engine, producing around 90 bhp. The Turismo chassis was mainly fitted with large limousine bodies. For the Sport chassis, various coach-builders were commissioned to design coupe and cabriolet bodies. Breaking with the tradition of delivering rolling chassis for coach-builders to body, the Touring designed Sport Berlinetta and Cabriolet were offered as a complete car by Alfa Romeo.
