Launched in 1962, the Alfa Romeo 2600 Spyder with its handsome Touring coachwork represented a return for the Italian marque to the high class, luxury six cylinder cars which in the past had proved so successful. Its chief rivals were the Maserati 3500 GT Spyder and Lancia Flaminia Convertible, both similar in appearance and performance. 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 was matched by a luxurious and well-appointed interior, making the car an ideal choice for long distance high speed open touring.
