This Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 S Berlina sits proudly among the most stunning and understated of Alfa Romeo’s creations, boasting elegant Pinin Farina coachwork.

This car was delivered on 11 September 1951 to its first owner in Lugano and has spent most of its life in Southern Italy. Presented today in wonderfully patinated condition and with an extensive ownership record, this 6C 2500 S Berlina has clearly been cared for throughout its life. Retaining its original engine and thought to be just one of 17 surviving examples of only 80 originals, this elegant car belies its almost 70 years of age. Recent restoration work by Sebring Motors in the Netherlands totalling more than €18,000 ensures this car is ready to enjoy.
An Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 S Berlina represents an entry ticket into the finest events, and this Pinin Farina-bodied example is a prime candidate for the ‘preservation-class’ categories still enjoying huge popularity.
