The classic Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint’s 2+2 bodywork was one of the first designs to come from a youthful Giorgetto Giugiaro at Bertone. Giugiaro would go on to be named Car Designer of the Century in 1999 and was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2002. His design influence can be seen in many classics, including the Lotus Esprit S1, the Ferrari 250, several Lamborghini concept cars, and the Maserati Ghibli. The 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint is an excellent example of 1960’s automotive design, particularly with its up-to-the-minute use of double headlamps. The Sprint Coupe was the most popular of the Alfa Romeo 2600 line, and featured front disc brakes and a five-speed transmission. Although plagued with constant rust headaches, the classic Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint represents an excellent opportunity to own a piece of beautiful Italian automotive design from the 1960’s. With just under 7,000 produced, it is possible to find an Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint in a wide variety of conditions. Whether you’re searching for a model for restoration, one that is ready for daily driving, or one that you can house in your showroom, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to assist you in your search.
Boasting an all-new 2,584cc aluminum inline-six engine with cast iron liners, the 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint and Spider models also represented a new era of performance and handling for the Alfa Romeo brand. It was a departure from the iron-block four-cylinders that had been the standard for Alfa Romeo in previous post-war Alfa Romeo models. This is one of the reasons why the classic Alfa Romeo models from this era are so loved in today’s classic car market. They make excellent weekend or daily drivers and are quite responsive even by today’s standards. One of the most important Buyer’s Tips, however, is to ensure that the example you purchase is as original and authentic as possible. This can be achieved by performing a thorough third party inspection and by matching engine and chassis numbers with Alfa Romeo records. In addition to looking for rust, you’ll also want to check any areas of repair for quality workmanship. These are things that a qualified Alfa Romeo classic expert can assist you with, and The Beverly Hills Car Club can connect you with these types of experts.
