Description

This Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM (chassis 1361.00128) was originally a racecar with a body by Carrozzeria Colli. It was driven by Juan Manuel Fangio to 2nd place in the 1953 Mille Miglia. This ex-factory spare racecar became a mule for various Pininfarina design studies.

The Turinese coachbuilder fitted four different bodies on the Alfa Romeo chassis between 1956 and 1960:

1) 1956 Turin show: "Super Flow I Coupe". Plexi fenders, tail fins, wraparound windshield, full plexiglass canopy, gullwing roof panels.
2) 1956 Paris Auto Salon: "Super Flow II Coupe". Steel fenders, tail fins, plexi roof.
3) 1959 Geneva show: "Spyder Super Sport". Convertible, no tail fins.
4) 1960 Geneva show: "Super Flow IV" or "Coupe Super Sport Speziale". Plexi roof, no tail fins.

The ex-Fangio machine has survived in its 1960 configuration.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
