    Alfa Romeo 6C 1750

    The more powerful 6C 1750 (1752 cc actual) was introduced in 1929 in Rome. It was produced in six series between 1929-1933. Base model had a single overhead cam; Super Sport and Gran Sport versions had double overhead cam engine (DOHC).

    Again, a supercharger was available. Most of the cars were sold as rolling chassis and bodied by coachbuilders such as Zagato, Touring and James Young. In 1929, it won every major racing event it was entered, including the Grands Prix of Belgium, Spain, Tunis and Monza, as well as the Mille Miglia was won with Giuseppe Campari and Giulio Ramponi, the Brooklands Double Twelve and the Ulster TT was won also, in 1930 it won again the Mille Miglia and Spa 24 Hours. Total production was 2635.

    Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain one as an adult.

    Cool, thanks for the info. I had never heard of him before. Does he have any significant race wins?
