The 1961 Alfa Romeo 2000 would mark the end of production for the 2000 series, which would be followed by the Alfa Romeo 2600 series in 1962. First debuted in 1957 at the Turin Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo 2000 offered buyers a new 1,975cc four-cylinder engine that gave the Berlina Sedan 105hp and the Sprint and Spider models 115hp with two Solex carburetors. While the Berlina was designed and manufactured in-house by Alfa Romeo, some of the top coachbuilders in Italy were contracted to design the Sprint and Spider models. Bertone would style the 2000 Sprint with a clean design that is often said to invoke thoughts of grand touring through the backcountry. Bertones styling offered similar proportions to the later Alfa Sprint GT and highly desired GTV, though on a larger scale. The Spider would be designed by Touring, a design house that had a rich history with the Alfa brand. While the Spider styling was considered conservative, it was quite popular. In fact, many said it had the perfect dimensions for a California cruiser, with an interior that was clean and well suited to comfortable driving. In total, approximately 7,089 units of the Alfa Romeo 2000 were produced, with 3,443 Spiders accounting for nearly half of the cars built.
