Offered by Brightwells | U.K. | September 2, 2023
Before the 6C, Alfa Romeo had the RL. Like immediately before: this was the predecessor to the 6C 1500. This was Alfa’s first post-WWI sports car, and it was produced with the idea of competing at the Targa Florio – and later Mille Miglia.
The engine lineup consisted of six-cylinder options, with the RL Sport seen here displacing three liters. It has three carburetors and made 70 horsepower. It was available between 1922 and 1925.
This third-series car was discovered in the 1970s as a rolling chassis with an engine. The remnants of Targa Florio-style bodywork were also present at that time. The car was restored in the early-2000s. Alfa Romeo RL models make 6Cs look downright common, and this one has an estimate of $320,000-$380,000. Click here for more info.
