In Padua, till October 23rd, at the 33rd edition of the "Auto e Moto d'Epoca" show Alfa Romeo is attending with a selection of prized classic cars and the newest models from his current line-up: what better way to reassert the unique character of these legendary brands and their heritage of cars and designers, races and engines that marked the technological progress and the motorsports of the twentieth century.
The involvement of Alfa Romeo in the Padua event does revolve around the theme of timeless elegance, that special something that makes all Alfa Romeo models unique and perfectly recognisable still today. Here, timeless elegance is represented by the classic cars that marked the international affirmation of Alfa Romeo in the premium segment from the 1920s to the end of the 1940s. Four authentic gems which exemplify the development of the legendary six-cylinder twin shaft engine across various displacements will be sent to Padua from the Museum in Arese: a 6C 1500 Sport (1928), a 6C 1750 Gran Turismo (1929), a 6C 1900 (1933) and a 6C 2500 Freccia d'Oro (1947).
The sedan, coupé, faux cabriolet and cabriolet bodies of these cars were made either directly by Alfa Romeo or by famous international coachbuilders. An exhibition is dedicated to these "masters of style" and their relationship with Alfa Romeo at the brand's Museum in Arese. It will be the opportunity to admire the craftsmanship of the great Italian coachbuilders who propelled Alfa Romeo to the pinnacle of aesthetic, aerodynamic and engineering research. The exhibition will close on January 10.
