This Alfa 6 is presented in its original ” Blu Olandese” dark blue colour, with the original beige velour upholstery. The car left the factory on 21 April 1980, and was delivered new on 26 April to Florence, in Italy. In December 1983 it was registered in Arezzo to a 25-year old woman and changed hands again in 2002 before arriving with our collector in 2004. The car had been extremely well looked after, but in search of perfection, the owner decided to carry out a thorough restoration of the body and all mechanical elements. Consequently, it is offered today in absolutely immaculate condition!
The 2-5-litre V6 engine, the last of its type to be designed by the Alfa Romeo design team, is the carburettor version, and is presented in flawless condition. Even in a large car like the Alfa 6, it provides wonderful acceleration.
Inside, the wood veneer dashboard represents what was in vogue during the 1970s/1980s for a car of this standing, and a rival to Mercedes and BMW. The luxurious seats are inviting and the car boasts a high level of equipment including the period Blaupunkt radio-cassette player. The rust-coloured carpets show no signs of wear. The car comes with the original toolkit and is sold with the “Uso e Manutenzione” and a guide to Alfa Romeo agents in Europe. This type of model has typically not survived the years very well, having attracted little interest after its initial period of use. It is therefore rare to find an example that has escaped this fate and is presented to such a high standard- a feature that will not escape the notice of enthusiasts of this genre.
