Modeled for a Rita Hayworth painting | 1947 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 for sale

Photography Courtesy Gullwing Motor Cars

This 1947 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 served as the basis for a Chris Osborne painting of actress Rita Hayworth and her own 6C 2500. The car must have a thing for the spotlight, as it was also featured in an episode of “My Classic Car with Dennis Gage” and as an example of one of the 100 greatest cars ever built in the book, “The Art of the Automobile.”

Chassis no. 912.417 retains its original chassis tag and original engine–the last inline-six model developed by legendary Italian automobile designer Vittorio Jano. The 6C 2500 is considered the company’s last prewar and first postwar model, as well as the last true coach-built Alfa.

The car was ahead of its time, as far as its four-wheel independent suspension–with parallel trailing arms and coil springs in the front and swing axles with torsion bars in the rear. It could achieve 160 km/h (99 mph), according to the seller. As far as its condition, the seller adds that it’s “older in presentation but still very attractive and retaining many original features.”
