The last derivate of the original 1500 version, the 6C 1900 with an 1917 cc engine was introduced in 1933, now with an aluminium head for the first time. With 68 brake horsepower this version could achieve top speed of 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph). Only 197 copies were made.
Alfa Romeo is in financial trouble. Only 408 cars and a few aero engines were built this year. Fiat's offer to take control over the company was rejected. It was rescued by the Italian government who took control in 1933 through the Istituto Riconstruzione Industriale (IRI). Ugo Gobbato become managing director on 1st of December. His strategy is to concentrate on producing aero engines, trucks and vans for military use and continue building limited number of exclusive and racing cars for image-making.

In 1933 the supercharged dual overhead cam straight-8 engine was enlarged (bore: 68 mm, stroke: 88 mm, 2557cc) to 2.6 litres ('8C 2600') for the Tipo B, was fitted to the Scuderia Ferrari 8C Monzas. Scuderia Ferrari had become the "semi-official" racing department of Alfa Romeo, who were no longer entering races as a factory effort due to the poor economic situation of the company. With the initial 215 hp of the 2.6 engine, the Monoposto Tipo B (P3) racer could accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 7 seconds and could eventually reach 135 mph (217 km/h).
