The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 was among the first post-war models manufactured by the Alfa Romeo company from 1947 to 1952. Boasting a double-overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine, which was essentially an evolution of the pre-war 6C 2500, the 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 was a Berlina body style based on the 2500 Sport. Named the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Freccia dOro, or Golden Arrow, the car offered a four-speed manual gearbox and could achieve top speeds in excess of 96mph. In total, only 680 examples of the 6C 2500 Freccia dOro would be produced through 1951. Interestingly, these were the last Alfa Romeos manufactured with separate frame and body, and the brands last coach-built cars, with bodies supplied by Touring, Pininfarina, Boneschi and others. Although the cars were rather large, their charm and beauty appealed to the affluent buyers of the era. Today, the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 is appreciated as being an excellent example of post-war Alfa Romeo engineering and design.
