The Alfa Romeo 2600 launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1962 as a Berlina Sedan, a Sprint Coupe and a Spider Convertible. Perhaps the most successful of these, according to sales numbers, was the Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint Coupe. Elegantly designed by Bertone, the 2+2 Sprint offered a six-cylinder 2,584cc engine with a five-speed synchronized transmission. It would become known for its excellent road holding, thanks in part to a four-wheel disc brake setup. The 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint represents the last of production prior to the introduction of the 2600 SZ, or Sprint Zagato, which offered improvements in quality of materials, number of accessories and the finish. Today, however, classic car collectors of all types find that the 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint is an excellent example of classic Italian sport touring cars of the 1960’s often found at a fraction of the cost compared to Aston Martin or Maserati models of the era. If you’re thinking about buying a 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint, you’ve come to the right place.
In total, there were more than 11,000 Alfa Romeo 2600 classics manufactured, of which approximately 6,999 were Sprints. In addition to overall condition, additional options such as leather seating, electric windows, rear defrosters and two-speed wipers can add value against a typically stock example in similar condition. Of course, these 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint examples were built prior to advancements in rust protection. As such, rust can cause constant headaches for Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint owners. For this and other reasons, it is important to purchase the best condition example you can within your budget. If you’re thinking about purchasing an example for restoration purposes, always be sure to consider the costs of restoration in your overall budget.
