Gorgeous 1942 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Spider Bound For Arizona Auction

A simply breathtaking 1942 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Spider is heading to RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction on January 18-19.

Set to be offered without a reserve, the classic is expected to sell for between $900,000 and $1.1 million and will be right at home as the centerpiece of any car collection.

Alfa Romeo built the 6C from 1927 to 1954 in a plethora of configurations for both the road and racing purposes. Between 1938 and 1952, the 6C 2500 was the final production 6C built for the road and sold in roughly a dozen different flavors, including the SS Spider we have pictured.

RM Sotheby’s has yet to provide a detailed history of this particular car but our research suggests it is powered by the same 2.4-liter inline-six cylinder found across the 6C family. In SS Spider configuration, it delivered roughly 110 hp.

While that power figure is outdated by today’s standards, the exterior design of the two-seater remains as beautiful as ever. It features two large circular headlights, black wheels, a black and red paint scheme, and a simple interior that appears to be in as-new condition.

    Yes, absolutely breathtaking. I have to believe it’s going to exceed that $1.1m top end.

      I hope not. I’m only bringing a cool million to Scottsdale.

      • Six Thousand Times

        Well, I mean good luck…but…

        • ChrisInIL

          Yeah, I guess I’m getting my hopes up. There’s always someone with more money.

      • BGM

        Reminds of of some old movie in which there was an auction and no matter how much one bidder offered the other one would offer the same sum *and six pence*. Imagine a guy offering a cool million… and fifty cents.
