The 6C2300's styling was strictly derivative of other Alfas and concurrent Italians, though many sedans had distinctly U.S. lines. Early models had beam front axles, and 1935 models brought coil spring independent front suspension (a first for Alfa) allied to swing-axle (Alfa said "Porsche type") independent rear. The 1934-1939 Alfa Romeo 6C2300 offered twincam engines but no "blowers" now that racing regulations had changed, so top speed was less than 80 mph in most cases.
