Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport ‘Flying Star’ Spider (Carrozzeria Touring), 1931
Показанный на иллюстрациях автомобиль оснащен кузовом ателье Туринг — «Flying Star» (Летящая Звезда), специально построенным для демонстрации на Конкурсе элегантности Вилла д’Эсте (Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este) 1931 года, где автомобиль и, представлявшая его, модель Жозетта Поззо (Josette Pozzo) получили первый приз.

Возможно, не такой известный как более поздние модели, Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 — один из самых значительных автомобилей марки Альфа-Ромео начала 1930-х годов. Построенный в 1929 году, как замена модели 6С 1500, относительно простой автомобиль за пять лет производства развился в настоящую гоночную машину. А возглавил этот процесс Витторио Яно (Vittorio Jano), которого к этому времени удалось переманить из ФИАТ.

Первой разработкой Яно для Альфа-Ромео была модель 6С 1500 с маленьким шестицилиндровым двигателем с верхним распредвалом. Спортивные версии этого автомобиля были весьма успешны и, даже, победили в Милле Милья (Mille Miglia) 1928 года. На следующий год на Римском Автосалоне был представлен публике Alfa Romeo 6C 1750, практически идентичный прежней модели, но с увеличенным объемом двигателя.

Увеличение мощности двигателя позволило компании устанавливать на машину кузова большего размера и веса. Первая модель — «Туризмо» (Turismo) была построена на шасси с 3,1- метровой колесной базой. Однако, вскоре появилась более короткая модификация «Спорт», а затем — «Супер Спорт», оснащенный двигателем с двумя верхними распредвалами и компрессором, мощностью 95 лошадиных сил.

Производство автомобилей Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Sport и Super Sport продолжалось в течение двух лет, затем они были заменены: модель с атмосферным двигателем на «Гран Туризмо» (Gran Turismo), а наддувный, на «Гран Спорт» (Gran Sport). Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport был не только самым коротким автомобилем серии, с базой 2,7 метра, но и самым мощным.

В соответствии со сложившейся практикой, фирмы — производители автомобилей выпускали лишь готовые шасси для передачи кузовным мастерским. Большинство кузовов на Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 произвели Загато (Zagato) и Туринг (Touring), отдельные экземпляры оснащались кузовами, изготовленными Кастанья (Castagna) и Стабилименти Фарина (Stabilimenti Farina). Для спортивных автомобилей наиболее предпочтительными были кузова Загато, из-за их низкого веса.

В 1933 году спортивная модель 6C 1750 Gran Sport была заменена в заводской программе более мощным восьмицилиндровым автомобилем 8С 2300, а на смену Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Turismo пришла целая серия более мощных шестицилиндровых автомобилей (6С 1900, 6С 2300, 6С 2500), производство которых продолжалось вплоть до начала Второй Мировой войны.


The 6C 1750 Gran Sport 'Flying Star' was specifically created by Touring of Milan for the 1931 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. Also fitted to a Fiat and Isotta Fraschini chassis, the 'Flying Star' design featured beautiful flowing lines, highlighted by the split running boards. Unique to the Alfa Romeo was the competition inspired, one-piece windshield that resembled the two small windscreens used by the competition 6C 1750s.

Finished in a spectacular off-white throughout, the Alfa Romeo 'Flying Star' was entered in the Concorso d'Eleganza by model and loyal Touring customer Josette Pozzo. No judge could resist their combined beauty and the striking 6C 1750 was named best of show and received the coveted 'Coppa d'Oro'. What happened to the car next we do not know but it eventually resurfaced in the United States around the turn of the century.

Perhaps not as well known as later models, the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 is one of the quintessential Alfa Romeos of its era. First introduced as a replacement for the 6C 1500 in 1929, the 6C 1750 evolved from a relatively simple road car to a very sophisticated racing machine in the five years it was produced. One of the key elements in the progress was designer Vittorio Jano, lured to Alfa Romeo from his former employer Fiat by Enzo Ferrari.

Jano's first design for Alfa Romeo was the 6C 1500, which featured a small six cylinder engine with a single overhead camshaft. Competition versions of this relatively small Alfa Romeo were quite successful, with a highlighted victory in the 1928 running of the Mille Miglia. At the 1929 Rome Motorshow, the 6C 1750 was introduced. Technically it was almost identical to the 6C 1500, with the enlarged engine as the biggest difference.

First and foremost the 6C 1750 was intended to carry larger and heavier fixed head bodies. The first model available, the Turismo, was equipped with a 3.1 metre wheelbase. Soon after a shorter wheelbase version, dubbed Sport, was launched. More importantly it was fitted with a double overhead camshaft engine, which would form the base for a series of very successful competition engines. The most powerful version was the Super Sport, which was fitted with a 95 bhp supercharged engine.

Production of the Sport and Super Sport lasted for only two years. The replacements were the Naturally Aspirated Gran Turismo and supercharged Gran Sport. With a wheelbase of just over 2.7 metres, the Gran Sport was not only the most powerful, but also the shortest of the series. It is this model that is best known of all 6C 1750s produced. The final evolution was a further modified Gran Sport, produced in 1933. It was equipped with various chassis modifications compared to earlier models.

As was common practice in the day, the cars were delivered as rolling chassis for the coach-builders to body. Most of the 6C 1750s were bodied by Italian coach builders, with Zagato and Touring being responsible for the bulk of these. Other notable coach builders were Castagna and Stabilimenti Farina. Zagato's bodies were mainly chosen for the competition cars, because of their light weight.

In 1933 the Gran Sport model was replaced by the 8C 2300, which shared the Gran Sport's basic design elements. The Turismo was replaced by a series of six cylinder cars of which the production would last until the outbreak of the Second World War. All of Alfa Romeo's successful competition models of the 1930s built on the lessons learned in the development of the 6C 1750. Jano's double overhead camshaft design would remain unchanged and proved a winning formula in both Grand Prix and Sports car racing.
