Introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint represented a return for the marque to the high class, luxury six 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 Alfa''s twin overhead camshaft engine developed a respectable 145bhp at an unstressed 5,900rpm, fed by three twin-choke side-draught carburettors, while power was transmitted through a five speed gearbox which gave the car an impressive 125mph top speed. The sophisticated mechanical specification of the Bertone styled 2600 was matched by a luxurious and well-appointed interior, making the car an ideal choice for long distance high speed open touring.
