Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlina Ghia

Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlina: the most important car for Ghia.

Vehicle Overview

The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlina Ghia stands as a testament to the fusion of elegance and innovation. In 1949, Carrozzeria Ghia unveiled this substantial sedan atop the chassis of the revered 6C 2500 at the prestigious Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza. However, despite its imposing presence, the car’s elongated chassis and the imperative for interior space, coupled with the ongoing debate over the use of smooth sides, led to what may now be deemed an unsuccessful outcome. Nevertheless, the jury of its era held a contrasting perspective, bestowing upon it two esteemed prizes, thus affirming its significance in the automotive realm. Crafted under the creative vision of Giovanni Michelotti, the award-winning body design of the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlina would go on to leave an indelible mark on automotive history. Remarkably, this design would find further acclaim as it transcended continents and collaborations. Ghia ingeniously repurposed Michelotti’s creation for the Plymouth XX 500, utilizing it as the foundation for a groundbreaking partnership contract with the Chrysler group. In a head-to-head battle against the revered Pinin Farina, the Plymouth XX 500 emerged triumphant, securing its place in automotive lore as a symbol of ingenuity and craftsmanship. The legacy of the 6C 2500 Sport Berlina Ghia extends beyond its mere existence as a luxurious sedan. It serves as a beacon of innovation, embodying the collaborative spirit of automotive design and engineering. From its humble origins to its transcendent influence across continents, this masterpiece continues to inspire admiration and reverence among enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike, reaffirming its timeless allure in the annals of automotive history.
