At the time the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint (1960) and Spider (1958) variations were released, many believed they represented the best of Italian styling, despite the rather conservative design. First debuted in Berlina form, the introduction of the Alfa Romeo 2000 launched the Alfa Romeo into the larger saloon car category. Around the same time, a Spider version built by Touring would be released. At the end of 1960, the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint would debut. It was effectively a slightly longer Spider chassis and engine with a new two-door, four-seat body by Bertone. Of the three body styles available for the Alfa Romeo 2000, the Alfa 2000 Sprint is the hardest to find today, as only an estimated 704 examples were produced before the model was succeeded by the Alfa Romeo 2600. Mechanically, however, collectors love the Alfa Romeo 2000 for its obvious racing influence. With their twin-cam engines, large Alfin brakes, well-developed suspension and quick, responsive steering, they are simply a joy to drive. But at 2,596 pounds for the Sprint, the power-to-weight ratio is sometimes pointed out as the classics one downfall.
Perhaps the most difficult task when purchasing an Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint is finding one in the condition you desire. While there are some Alfa Romeo classic car registries that document the 2000 Sprint models that are available in the United States, it is still very difficult to estimate the number of available, good quality examples available to U.S. buyers. And, with only 704 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint models produced during the three years of production, it is always best to partner with a classic car expert that can assist you in finding and authenticating a quality example.
