In 1930, the 6C 1750 was Alfa Romeo's most capable sports-racing car, winning races all over Europe. It was available in three versions, the naturally-aspirated Turismo, the twin-cam Super Sport available with or without a supercharger, and the supercharged Gran Sport. Both supercharged models had Alfa-built Roots-type blowers, although the Super Sport had a smaller, geared-up supercharger.
This 4th Series 6C 1750 Super Sport was ordered by Prince Alberto Manganelli of Sicily and is one of three short-chassis cars built for the 1930 Targa Florio and driven by Campari, Nuvolari and Maggi. It later competed in the XI Gran Premio d'Italia at Monza in September of 1933. While spending recent years in Australia it has taken part in several Mille Miglia retrospectives in Italy.
