Italian automaker Alfa Romeo gained fame in the early 1930s for their line of twin-cam, straight six powered Grand Touring cars. Following World War II, the company became known mostly for their lightweight, small displacement four-cylinder cars. The 2600 Sprint marked a return to building the powerful and luxurious 6C Gran Turismo cars that made the company famous.

Alfa Romeos 2600 was the storied Italian marques flagship for much of the 1960s and succeeded the 2000 series. Debuted at Geneva in 1962, it was available with three body styles: the four-door Berlina with factory bodywork, the Bertone-bodied Sprint Coupe, and the 2 + 2 Spider by Carrozzeria Touring. Never produced in large numbers, the 2600 delivered a wonderful blend of characteristically Italian design and spirited driving dynamics for its discerning buyers.

The engine was a direct derivative of the twin cam of old, now displacing 2584cc and producing 170hp. The exotic all-alloy motor was rugged too and famously served in the Italian Carbinieris Squadra Volante as high-speed Pantera police pursuit vehicles. European and South American racers took note, and the Sprints were raced enthusiastically with notable success. Alessandro Ragazzi won the European TT 3 Liter Championship in 1967 in a 2600 Sprint.

The Bertone-built Sprint body, first penned in 1959 as the 2000 Sprint, marked the first-ever design to meet production from a young Giorgetto Giugiaro and influenced a generation of European sporting coupes. The design proved so innovative that Bertone essentially resold it three times- as the Gordon-Keeble, the Iso Rivolta and the BMW 3200 CS- (though the original remains the purest incarnation)- and inspired a downscale version-the Giulia GT- that was beloved by a generation of Alfisti.

Total production of the model was 6,402 built between 1962 and 1966. Noted Alfa Romeo historian and author Pat Braden wrote about the 2600 Sprint in his book, The Alfa Romeo Owners Bible, calling it A true grand touring carcapable of covering long distances reliably without tiring driver or passenger and saying If you simply must have a classic 6-cylinder Alfa, this is probably the model to buythe 2600 is the most bulletproof Alfa of all time, according to an Alfa engineer who knows such things Today, Sprints are rare and are welcome additions to any gathering of 6C 2500 Alfas, as they represent the last of the great 6C Gran Turismo lineage.

Finished in the original colour combination of Grigio Fiat with Tan hide as per its Certificato Di origine. Our 2600 Coupes first owner resided in Genova in Northern Italia where it stayed for the majority of its life until it was imported to the UK by DD Classics. Standing proudly with gleaming paintwork, bright chrome twinned with correct period tires fitted, superb panel fitment and still complete with its original luxurious hide interior.
