The Alfa Romeo 2000 arrived in 1958 as the successor to the widely popular Alfa Romeo 1900. With a 102-Series internal designation, the 1958 Alfa Romeo 2000 would feature new bodywork wrapped around what was essentially the 1900 engine. A Berlina Sedan would be the first on the scene, which was designed and built by the factory. A Spider Convertible with bodywork by Touring would launch at the same time. Later, in 1960, a Sprint Coupe with bodywork by Bertone would complete the lineup. Interestingly, all three models would have a family resemblance to the Alfa Romeo Giuliettas. Mechanically, the Alfa Romeo 2000 was clearly the product of racing experience. The Berlina, with a single Solex carburetor, would offer 105hp. The Sprint and Spider models, on the other hand, would offer 115hp with twin Solex carburetors. Popular for their exquisite Italian styling, well-developed suspension, twin-cam engines, large brakes and quick, positive steering, it is easy to understand why buyers of the era and todays collectors had such passion for the car. Just over 7,000 Alfa Romeo 2000 models were manufactured prior to the end of production in 1962. The Spider would account for almost half of production (approximately 3,443 models), as it would be built for the full five years and the Sprint only saw three years of production.
When buying a 1958 Alfa Romeo 2000, always ensure that you have the classic thoroughly inspected by a qualified Alfa Romeo specialist. As always, it pays to find the best classic Alfa Romeo 2000 you can. While mechanical restoration on a twin-cam Alfa is much less expensive than on many of its Italian counterparts, bodywork for these classics can be quite costly. The Beverly Hills Car Club recommends staying away from exceptionally rusty examples and encourages buyers to ensure they are considering a model that is as original as possible. To do this, verify engine and chassis numbers correspond to the year, make and model of the car youre considering. Youll also want to ask the sellers for any historical documentation, including maintenance and service reports or documentation regarding restoration, if any. The Beverly Hills Car Club can also point you in the direction of numerous Alfa Romeo Owners clubs, where owners share their experiences and often get together to enjoy their Italian classics.
