Alfa Romeo 6C wins Motorclassica concours
It's lived in the UK and New Zealand, and now this beautiful Alfa Romeo 6C has won a prestigious award in Australia - Motorclassica's 'Best in Show'
Alfa Romeos have been enjoying a great year at concours events in 2018. Various models have has been shortlisted countless times, an 8C actually won the prestigious Pebble Beach concours, and just last week a 6C won the Zoute Concours d’Elegance. Another accolade comes to the historic Italian brand via Australia and the Motorclassica concours.
An absolutely stunning 1932 Alfa 6C 1750 GS Spider won ‘Best in Show’ at Motorclassica up against some pretty tough competition. This 6C hosts aluminium coachwork from the legendary Zagato design house that emphasises the long bonnet and proud wings. Under said bonnet is a glorious 1762cc in-line six accompanied by a supercharger.

This example originally lived in the UK and was owned by Bubby Featherstonehaugh, a racer and Jazz musician. This beauty must have been an exotic sight on British streets that were enjoying a time of peace post World War I. About 16 years ago the Alfa Romeo migrated to New Zealand where a Mr Southward and his children began restoring the car. Sadly he passed away, and so it was his son who proudly displayed the car after its restoration was completed by Bristol Motors in New Zealand this year.
Coachbuilding was a huge part of motoring in the 1930s and '40s, with one model spawning multiple variants. This open-top 6C is a great example of the variety that was on offer and contrasts the Touring bodied car that won Zoute Concours d’Elegance.
Other noteworthy winners included a 1969 Maserati Ghibli Spyder for ‘Restoration of the year’, the 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale that received the ‘Spirit of Motorclassica’ trophy, and the ‘Modern Classic’ award-winning Jaguar Mk2. There were a few quirky winners in the form of a Holden Monaro GTS and BMW Isetta which won the ‘People’s Choice’ and the ‘Post War Classic Closed’ categories respectively.

The story of this Alfa Romeo 6C Pescara Monza begins at the Spanish brothers Demetrio and Rafael Del Val. These gentlemen have dedicated their lives to anything that had wheels, you might say. It seems they had all the time to do that because actually working for a living they apparently did not had to.
