Italy

The 6C 2300 was designed by Vittorio Jano as a cheaper alternative to the 8C with a newly designed, larger engine. Chassis however, had been taken from the predecessor 6C 1750. It made it's debut at the Milan Motor Show with a four-door body by Castagna. A short-wheelbase Gran Turismo version soon followed, as did a higher compression version offering nearly 100 horsepower. These sporty versions are called the Pescara. The long wheelbase versions are called the Turismo's, the shorter Gran Turismo.
188 chassis of the 8C 2300 were built.
