Villa d'Este 2012: 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C takes top prize

With a win on the Mille Miglia retrospective just seven days before, it was a double triumph for the famous Milanese marque as Canadian David Cohen’s 1933 Alfa Romeo 1750 GS 6C Coupé took the 2012 Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este.

The ‘Best of Show’ award for the Figoni-bodied, two-tone coupé was decided after public voting on Saturday, 26 May at Villa d’Este, the lavishly opulent 5* hotel by Lake Como.

In addition, the Jury awards its own prizes, which this year included the Trofeo ASI (for the best preserved post-War car) being given to Mark Finburgh’s ex-JW Gulf Porsche 917K.

The Trofeo BMW Group Classic (for the most sensitive restoration) was awarded to Gary W. Bartlett’s 1968 Ford GT 40 Mk3.
