Known History

The 106 series was introduced in 1962 as a replacement for the 102 series, the sedan and spider versions of which were built from 1958 to 1962 and the Sprint coupé version bodied by Bertone from 1960 to 1962. The total number of these cars produced was just 7,089, all versions included, powered by the 1975cc engine with a cast iron block, derived from the 1900, and which was advantageously replaced on the 106 series by a beautiful, more modern and much more powerful in-line six-cylinder of 2584cc, with the block and cylinder head in light alloy. Visually, the 1962 2600 Sprint differed little from the previous two-liter version, but the car was infinitely more modern with its four-disc brakes and six-cylinder seven-stage engine. It was an elegant and expensive car, and its price was double that of a Giulia coupe. "Elegant, comfortable, fast, agile, with excellent road handling, as well as efficient braking, the coupe will interest most fans of Grand Tourers," this was how the Coupe 2600 was described in the issue of the Salon de l'Auto by the French magazine l'Auto Journal. They recorded a top speed of 195 km/h and the hundred meters standing start was covered in 33 seconds 2/5.

The car on offer was sold in 1964 by the 'Société française Alfa Romeo. It has since undergone a comprehensive restoration for both body and mechanicals. The upholstery has also been redone in Cognac leather, blending perfectly with the ivory color of its body. An invoice folder certifies the work carried out. It is one of the rare surviving 2600 Sprint of French provenance and with its Bertone design, its six-cylinder in-line twin camshaft and its cabin capable of accommodating four adults, this top of the range Italian is a real GT, combining comfort and sportiness. This example should really appeal to a very serious collector.
