The Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint was introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show, and represented a return for the marque to the high class, luxury 6 cylinder cars which in the past had proved so successful. Its chief rivals in the competitive GT category were cars such as the Maserati 3500 GT, Lancia Flaminia and Iso Rivolta.
The Sprint’s twin-cam engine developed a respectable 145 bhp at an unstressed 5900 rpm, fed by three double barrelled side-draught carburettors; the power was transmitted through a five-speed gearbox to give the car an impressive 125 mph top speed. The sophisticated mechanical specification was matched by a luxurious and well-appointed interior, making the Sprint an ideal choice for long high speed journeys.
We present here a lovely example in dark blue with beige interior that is reading only 52,224 miles on the odometer. A wonderful classic Italian sports coupe which is becoming increasingly desirable and as popular as ever, providing fun driving with a lively engine. These are attractive little sports cars which have never lost their market appeal and this is no exception.
