Alfa Romeo – 6C 2500 S Turinga


Vehicle Overview

This Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport is one of the very few examples (9) built in 1944, a very particular and difficult moment: at the height of the Second World War, when most of the limited production (which continued despite the bombing) was destined for war needs. It was built with a Berlinetta (4 seats) body, by Carrozzeria “Turinga”, with the famous and innovative Superleggera system. Regarding the name “Turinga”, when relations between Fascist Italy and the rest of Europe started to become hostile, Mussolini introduced an unwritten law to avoid the use of foreign words, so “Inter” (International football club from Milan) became “Ambrosiana” (Saint Ambrogio is Milan’s Patron Saint), “Cognac” became “Acquarzente”(burning water), “Basket” became “pallacanestro” and, in order to “Italianize” their trademark, “Touring” became “Turinga”. A very small number of Touring’s cars were badged “Turinga”,  and of these very few were the 6C 2500; only three Berlinetta survive today
