The Alfa Romeo 2600 was the manufacturers first post-war six-cylinder model and would be debuted at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show. Available in a Sedan known as the Berlina, a Coupe known as the Sprint, and a convertible known as the Spider, the 1962 Alfa Romeo 2600 would make good use of its powerful 130hp, 2,584cc engine. During this period, standard equipment included a five-speed gearbox and servo assisted disc brakes. The addition of four-wheel disc brakes, something new for Alfa, would not only make the Alfa 2600 safer, but would give it a real advantage in competition or sport driving. It would allow the Alfas to win through better braking when they couldnt achieve a win speed alone. Production of the Alfa Romeo 2600 would last until 1969, by which time 2,038 Berlina examples, 2,255 Spider examples, and 6,999 Sprint models would be produced. There would be no large production saloon Alfa to replace the 2600 until much later in 1979.
Perhaps the most appealing characteristic of the 1962 Alfa Romeo 2600 was the new six-cylinder, in-line 2.6L engine that was offered. Capable of 130hp in the Berlina and 145hp in the Spider and Sprint models, it was derived from the Giulietta engine. In fact, the Alfa Romeo 2600 has become historically significant as the last Alfa to be fitted with this traditional Alfa Romeo engine configuration. Later Alfa examples would boast a four-cylinder engine in order to move to more mass-produced cars after World War II.
