- A rare model
- In very good state of preservation
- Luxurious finish

It was at the Turin Motor Show of 1957 that Alfa Romeo unveiled the 2000 Berlina that replaced the 1900. With a slightly larger displacement engine, the new model featured a body that enhanced its resolutely high-end personality: it had an assertive grille and sacrificing to "American" trends, the car featured rear fins, with the exhaust exiting out of the bumper, plus hubcaps chromed generously. The car was designed to obviously cater to industrialists, businessmen and government officials. With a relatively exclusive production run, the total numbers produced was less than 3000 units, before the 2000 was replaced by six-cylindered 2600.
The car we offer left the factory on 17th of June, 1960 and was sold on June 23 in Loro Ciuffenna, near Arezzo, in Italy. Its colour then was "griogio alba", which is the colour that the car wears currently too. The body is in a healthy condition overall, with some minor imperfections; the chrome too is in good condition, though slightly pitted in places. The cabin is in beautiful condition, with an array of impeccable seats covered in blue cloth and leather imitation, which are in very good condition, along with very well preserved rubber mats on the floor. The odometer shows 10,478km and the car comes with a Voxson radio.
Repainted ten years ago, this car has been in the same hands from 1960 to 2002. Well maintained, this is an exemplary offering in an attractive state, true to what it was like when leaving the factory. This is typical of an upscale 1960s car, which is particularly rare, with its opulent luxury and fine condition and presentation on display.

The cars in this collection are all offered without contôle technique (MOT). New legislation prevents us from obtaining an MOT for a vehicle that is not registered in France.
