Introduced in 1962, Alfa Romeo’s 106-Series 2600 range was a direct replacement for the preceding 102-Series 2000 cars. The latter’s chassis design and body styles were retained, with minor revisions and improvements, but in place of the old 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine was a new, 2,584cc, twin-cam six descended from the immensely successful Giulietta. A maximum output of 145bhp was claimed for this unit when installed in the Sprint Coupé and Spider, good enough for a top speed of around 200km/h in 5th gear. Approximately 2,255 Spiders and 6,999 Sprint Coupés were produced between 1962 and 1966, and today these rare and under-appreciated models are becoming increasingly sought after by discerning collectors.
This particular 2600 is presented with FIA papers valid until 2026.Uprated by the legendary Vincenzo Fiammetta it weighs just 1070kg , and fires through 3 weber 50 DCO carburettors.. A successful participant in Targa Florio, Corsa Dell Enta, Monza , Prova Challenge Siciliano and Giro d’Sicilia this must be one of the most competitive 2600 cars available on the market today.
