It ran the Mille Miglia of 1934 driven by Nino Farina and it is one of only 12 6C 1750 Testa Fissa.
The Rome Motor Show of 1929 saw the presentation of the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750, a model offered as in the case of the 1500, with single or twin overhead camshafts and with or without a supercharger.
The engine's vital statistics were thoroughly revised to increase the displacement to 1752 cc, curiously well below the two-litre limit for the class. The car featured a top speed of 95 mph, a chassis designed to flex and undulate over wavy surfaces, as well as sensitive geared-up steering.
With the 6C 1750, Alfa Romeo began to supply complete cars, bodied in the Portello factory.
The "Super Sport" model, with a shortened wheelbase of 2745 mm like that of the later "Gran Sport", made its debut in the 1929 MM with Campari securing his second win.
Base model had a single overhead cam; Super Sport and Gran Sport versions had double overhead cam engine (DOHC). The 6C 1750 won fame in numerous races. Its powerful super-charged is one of the greatest creations of automobile designer Vittorio Jano.
The 6C 1750 was produced in six series and became more sophisticated from 1929 to 1933. In total, about 2500 cars were completed. Available in several configurations, most cars were sold as rolling chassis and bodied by coachbuilders such as Zagato, Carrozzeria Touring and James Young. In total, over 250 Gran Sports were made.

‘Testa Fissa’ is Italian for ‘fixed head’, a non-detachable cylinder head. In 1931 new rules for the Irish Tourist Trophy (TT), won the previous year by the Alfa Romeo 6C, stated that the head had to be detachable, so the Italians applied blind screws which nevertheless could turn. The scrutineers looked no further...

Acquiring engineer Vittorio Jano proved to be a coup for Alfa Romeo, as the successor to the 1500, the 6C 1750, did extremely well. The six-cylinder, fitted with a compressor in the Gran Sport and Super Sport versions, triumphed all over Europe: in the Mille Miglia, the Targa Florio, the Tourist Trophy and at Montlhéry.

Chassis 6C10814355 is one of 106 fifth-series Gran Sports produced, one of the 76 examples built for 1931 and one of only 12 Testa Fissa. This car took part in the Mille Miglia of 1934, driven by Nino Farina who in 1950 became the first Formula 1 World Champion.
This is a factory Alfa Romeo body, built in Portello with two seats and a Siluro style rear.
