Amelia Island Concours d’ Elegance: 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Zagato Aprile

1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Zagato Aprile

Underneath its unique Zagato body, this is an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport racing car. The 6C 1750 Zagato Aprile is a one-off, and was built to its current form by its second owner, Guiseppe Aprile, after it was damaged. It was hidden during Word War II by its third owner, and kept locked away in for 50 years in the private collection of its fourth owner. It sits today in the hands of its fifth owner, who had it restored to its current glory, the way Guiseppe Aprile made it.

I was privileged to see this car in person at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’ Elegance. It was a showstopper for sure, as many Alfa Romeos from this era are. Enjoy the gallery.
