Event born to celebrate the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este.
On Saturday, June 10, the twelfth edition of Villa d’Este Style One Lake One Car, an exclusive event created to celebrate the legendary Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este, a unique and special car that bears its own name after the first example triumphed at the 1949 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, was held in the picturesque setting of Villa d’Este.
Villa d’Este Style One Lake One Car
A rendezvous celebrating the Alfa Romeo myth was organized for the occasion, thanks to the collaboration with the Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo (RIAR) and the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 -2300 International Registry: 17 models were present-illustrating the various versions and bodies of the 6C 2500-including five legendary examples of the 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este, one of them part of the hotel’s private collection.
Among the most significant cars present were 3 models of the 6C 2300, forerunners of the 2500, including a dark burgundy racing car that participated in the Mille Miglia before the war.
This series of models, created by Vittorio Jano, one of the top automotive engineers not only from Italy but worldwide, allowed Alfa Romeo to achieve incredible successes, sealing its sporting DNA.
The day’s program
The day’s program on Saturday was marked by various moments: it began with the arrival of the cars, which were subsequently positioned on the terrace overlooking the lake, continued with a guided tour of the garden and some particularly significant rooms of the hotel, and ended with a talk by Marco Makaus, Project Manager of Villa d’Este Style initiatives entitled “Alfa Romeo Grand Prix Engines in the Epic of Italian Gentlemen at War.”
