I'm guessing a 1936/39 6C 2500 Turismo ... ?

6C Limousine

It looks like a long chassis 2300 B Limousine of 1938. Most were built for “Ministeriale”, government use.
The strip down the centre of the grille is unlikely to be original and spoils the simplicity.

The original tail lamps would have been round with small bullet shaped casings.
There would have been metal fairings around the spare tyres.
But it has survived in what appears to be great shape.

Most of these elegant monsters have long since disappeared.

Note the 2300 B Turismo has the wipers on the top of the windscreen while the 2500 Turismo has the wipers as this car had on the bottom of the windscreen.

According to my book only the 2500 has the spare wheels on the sides and artillery wheels.

So I still think it is a 2500 not a 2300.

6C 2500 Limousine

Here are two photos titled by Tito Anselmi as 6C 2500 Limousine. This Rome registered car is fitted with a Farraguti fuel gas generator. It has the war time livery of extremities high-lighted in white and shrouded headlights.

The stand out distinguishing features are the one piece bumper bars with over riders which were common to the 2500 factory bodied cars of the war period.
