OK. So the general consensus is that the was no works produced blown 6C 2300/2500.
Is the black car in the link mis-described?
Where is it?
Is it blown now?
What is it's history?

Another blown 6C 2300B is the one Murray Rainey built for his daughter's special. It has twin (single stage) blowers and is also dry sumped.
I'm also fitting a gear driven blower to my pre-war 6C2500 speciale using finned manifolds cast by Rainey.

Isn't there some mistake regarding 6C versus 8c
The first pictures on the site is 8C, and that was with supercharger.
The 6c was not in supercharger version official.
Tha car in question is in 7th row of photos up from the bottom of the page. It's in the 6C section.
I'm pretty sure I haven't seen a picture of any car like that in Simon Moore's comprehensive 8C books

Great photos. I have no idea where the car is now. It must be a VERY early 2500. You didn't happen to get the S/N did you??

The rear view looks VERY much like a Touring bodied 6c2300B MM coupe.

I can't tell if there were ever running boards or not. If you look at the back end of the front fenders, it looks like there might have been, but if you look at the front end of the rear fenders, it looks like there never were any!

Anyway, the fenders are rather odd, and look more like PF or Stab.Farina than Touring to me.

I don't see anything that tends to make me believe it was supercharged at one time...
The alleged supercharged car that is shown in the link at the beginning of this thread has a completely different body.

I'm also curious what you might expect to see from the outside that would indicate a blown car.
