1934 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Pescara

Carrosserie Worblaufen started buying Alfa Romeo chassis as the basis for custom bodies in the early 1930s. Some thirty Alfa Romeo 6C 2300s were bodied by Worblaufen including this dramatic cabriolet.

This unrestored Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 with aluminum body retured to the Geneva Auto Show after sixty-seven years. The car was built in 1938 for the same event. It was reunited as part of Geneva’s display celebrating 100 years of Swiss coachwork.
