description
Born with a spider bodywork by Zagato, this car is a 6C 1750 Gran Sport with compressor, the sportiest version of the Milanese six-cylinder, and it was sold new in Genova in 1931.
During the thirties the car ran in some races, like the 1934 Varese-Campo dei Fiori hillclimb and Targa Abruzzo, and changed hands many times.

In 1938 the cars was purchased by Giuseppe Aprile, coachbuilder in Savona, seems with some damage. He bought it with the intent of fitting it with a brand new and more modern body. Aprile involved Count Revelli de Beaumont to pen the new lines. The noted designer created a stunningly aerodynamic shape, perhaps following the creative imput of the same Aprile. Soon after the work was completed, Aprile sold the car to a local enthusiast. He carefully hid the car during the War and owned it until 1956. The fourth owner cherished the unique automobile and held on to it for long time during which it was only very rarely seen.

The car has always been in the region of Liguria, was changed in color and in some details but has survived to the present day. The work of restoration took two years to complete. With help and collaboration from the Politecnico of Milano University the exact shades of white and blue have been recreated.
