Wartime Alfa could make €680,000

010816-coys-a

INTERNATIONAL auctioneers Coys present a spectacular line-up for their inaugural auction at Schloss Dyck, in Germany, with more than 80 classic and sports cars going under the hammer this Saturday (August 6).

One of the star attractions is a 1942 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Super Sprint – Le Mans Berlinetta, which won Best in Show at SPA Italia 2015.

The Alfa was one of only a handful of cars produced during 1942 to 1945 due to the obvious production constraints of wartime Italy.

Production records indicate that this was in fact car No. 3 of the Tipo Supersport 6C 2500 models. The current touring style Le Mans Berlinetta coachwork was fitted during the early post-war years, and is inspired by the beautiful 1938 Le Mans touring Berlinetta, which competed in the 24-hour classic before the outbreak of the war.

It is a true exotic vehicle from the era of thoroughbred sports cars and one which would grace any collection. It is estimated at €580,000 to €680,000.

Other important lots include a 1956 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS (€250,000 – €275,000).
