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.

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.
