Known History

The 2600 Sprint is the last Alfa Romeo to benefit from a dual overhead straight-six engine, a configuration that has brought much success to the brand in competitive racing.

As an enthusiast of beautiful Italian cars, its current owner acquired it in September 2015 from Nael Auto Classic, shortly after it was sold by Artcurial Motorcars in February 2014 at the famous Retromobile sale in Paris. The catalogue of this sale highlighted important historical elements. According to Alfa Romeo archives, this 2600 Sprint Coupe has indeed left the factory on 10 April 1964, before being sold on 14 June of that same year to Alfa Romeo Inc. in Newark, United States. During the years 2000, one of the active members of the American Alfa Romeo club carried out a full restoration of this Sprint coupe, regardless of the cost. This coupe will in fact be awarded in 2007, receiving the "Certificato d'Oro" award by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club in the "Restoration & preservation excellence of an Alfa Romeo" category. It also won more trophies in other categories.

Perfectly pampered since then, the car remains in excellent overall condition with its superb Borrani spoked wheels restored at the time and its welcoming black leather upholstery combined with grey carpets and black piping. Since its acquisition, our owner has carried out a mechanical service, including the replacement of the fuel pump and pressure regulator, the installation of an electronic ignition, the replacement of the steering unit, the repair of carburettors, the drive shaft and the clutch transmitter. Finally, the odometer has been changed from miles to km. With its Bertone design, its dual overhead straight-six engine and its interior capable of seating four people, this high-end Italian car is a true GT, combining comfort and sportiness. This car has strong arguments to appeal to a meticulous collector.
