An Alfa Romeo 6C in our future?

Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles’ Alfa Romeo returned to our shores only a few short years ago but they’ve already left their market on the modern sports and luxury car landscape.

The 4C, Giulia and newest arrival Stelvio all have impressive attributes that will make German luxury car buyers take notice. There was an 8C briefly available and you’ll be lucky to ever spot one. Given that the sports car market remains alive and well, Alfa’s got plans for another one.

Details are more than scarce but a 6C could land on the auto show circuit later this year or the next and arrive in dealers by 2020. Size and performance-wise, the 6C would line up against the likes of the Jaguar F-Type, Chevrolet Corvette and a few others.

Alfa Romeo 6C

As you may or may not know, there’s a correlation between the number of cylinders that power the “C” cars and the number attached to said letter. With this in mind, we figure the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s turbocharged 505-horsewpower 2.9-litre V6 would be a good place to start.

Alfa Romeo did build a 6C between 1927 and 1954, all of them with 6-cylinder engines.
