Thank you for all your kind comments about my previous models. i hope you'll like this one, though I am not a good "renderer"!
Some parts of this one were very difficult to create, particularly the grid logo (!).
Something really riginal : the wiper engine and the wiper blades are fixed at the windscreen. First, it means that the windscreen was very thick and strong. Then what happened when you received a stone which broke the windscreen?
Despite its reputation for being quintessentially Italian, Alfa Romeo was actually founded by a Frenchman named Alexandre Darracq. At one point just after the turn of the 20th century, Darracq’s companies were building 10% of all cars being manufactured in the world – not bad for a guy who started out making sewing machines.
Alfa Romeo was originally founded as “A.L.F.A.” in 1910 – an acronym for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, or the Lombard Automobile Factory Company. The Romeo wouldn’t get added until 1915 when Italian engineer and entrepreneur Nicola Romeo came onboard.
World War I was well underway at this point, so Romeo converted the A.L.F.A. factory from cars to military hardware – significantly improving profitability in the process.
The name of the 6C is descriptive; it stands for 6 cilindro, or 6 cylinder. Unsurprisingly, this is a reference to the engine fitted to the car, an inline-six originally fitted with an SOHC, but developed into a DOHC a short time later.
This engine was developed by legendary Italian engineer Vittorio Jano, the man credited with developing the now-signature Alfa Romeo engine architecture with aluminum alloy construction (either fully or partly), double overhead cams, centrally located plugs, hemispherical combustion chambers, and twin rows of overhead valves per cylinder bank. This architecture may sound relatively standard now, but Jano first introduced its road cars back in 1928.
The 6C road car engine was directly based on the engine in the P2 Grand Prix car, though softened somewhat for reliability and ease of use. Initially offered with a 1,500 (1,487-cc) capacity in 1927, the size was incrementally upgraded over the years to 1,750 (1,752 cc), 1,900 (1,917 cc), 2,300 (2,309 cc), 2,500 (2,443 cc), and finally 3,000 (2,943 cc up to 3,495 cc).
Various coachbuilders offered bodies for the Alfa Romeo 6C, and Alfa itself would offer in-house bodies too; however, most cars left the factory as rolling chassis – a common practice at the time.
Under the skin, the 6C has a steel ladder-frame chassis that could be ordered in a variety of lengths to suit various bodies. The basic platform proved to be highly extensible, and over the 1927–1954 production, the 6C would be built into everything from luxury saloon cars to race-winning sports cars – and everything in between.

Beautiful car, Alain!!! Over here in the U.S., Alfa's have never seemed to garner as much attention as they deserve. When American car nuts think of Italian cars they think of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and even Fiat before they think of Alfa (LOL)! I for one have grown very fond of the Alfas. Nice job on this beauty.
