Based on the popular 2000 series line, Alfa Romeo introduced the upgraded version, the 2600, in 1961. Over the 7 year production, over 11,300 were produced in total including only 6,999 of the Sprint (coupe). The 2600 Sprint, being the new flagship of the Alfa lineup, was marketed towards enthusiasts of higher means and sold originally for over £4,000 when a new Jaguar XK-E was just over £2,000!

These cars featured styling from some of the biggest names in Italy. The Sprint, designed by Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro, was a GT designed to compete directly against cars such as the Maserati 3500GT. With four large and comfortable seats, these cars were designed for sustained, high-speed touring. And with features like A/C, a capable 6-cylinder engine and 5-speed gearbox, these road-ready cars are a pleasure to drive.

This particular car came from a California Alfa collection and had been in dry storage for several years. This car was nearly complete with interior, drivetrain (currently non-running), spare tire and even small bits like the original Carrello turn signal lamps.

These are the last of an iconic generation of Alfas. With the twin overhead cam alloy straight-6, inspiring design and unique market niche (amongst even other Alfas) these cars are a rare and beautiful part of automotive history
