Chassis #: 00125
This Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM was originally bodied by Colli and given a coupe configuration. It was campaigned by the factory Works team at the 1953 Mille Miglia. A few months later it was in the hands of the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio and Onofre Marimon at the grueling 24 Hours of LeMans race. The vehicle was involved in an accident and a new Spyder body was created by Zagato. A short time later possession passed to J. Bonnier who had the car painted in Swedish racing livery and used it in competition until 1956.
In 2005 many events celebrated the Alfa Romeo marque, including the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This 6C 3000 CM graced the golf course lawn at Pebble Beach and sat among many other rare and exotic Alfa Romeo automobiles.By Daniel Vaughan | Oct 2007
