Victorious debut for the Alfa Romeo Tipo 256

The tenth edition of Passione Engadina saw the debut of one of the latest acquisitions of the Lopresto Collection. This is the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS "Tipo 256" with Coupé Touring body.

The car is one of about twenty Tipo 256 built in 1939 by Alfa Corse, the racing department led by Enzo Ferrari. It was in fact a chassis designed for racing, shortened and tuned starting from the quieter 6C 2500 Sport. This particular car, chassis 915012, is the first of the series to have been bodied as a road car and can be considered the first ever road car created by Enzo Ferrari.

The very elegant Touring bodywork earned her the Best in Show prize (awarded by the public) and the first class award by the jury in the dynamic competition organized on Sunday at the Kulm Country Club in St. Moritz.

The Tipo 256 thus officially becomes part of the collection that already boasts two unique 6C 2500 SS: the 1942 Coupe Bertone and the 1949 Berlinetta Pinin Farina.
