1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider by Touring s/n 191551, engine no. AR00601 *01700* Dark Green with Brown Leather Interior Alfa Romeo gained fame in the early 1930's for their line of twin-cam, straight six powered Grand Touring cars. Following World War II, the company became known mostly for their lightweight, small displacement four cylinder cars. The 2600Sprint marked a return to building the powerful and luxurious "6C" Gran Turismo cars that made the company famous. The engine was a direct derivative of the twin cam of old, now displacing 2584cc and producing 170hp.The exotic all-alloy motor was rugged too, and famously served in the Italian Carbinieri's "Squadra Volante" as high-speed "Pantera" police pursuit vehicles. European and South American racers took note, and the Sprints were raced enthusiastically with notable success. Alessandro Ragazzi won the European TT 3 Liter Championship in 1967 in a2600 Sprint. More well appointed than the Giulietta and the Guilia Spiders, which made Alfa Romeo a viable production manufacturer, the 2600 Spider by Touring was a refined performance touring car equipped for comfort.

The Alfa Romeo 2600 (Tipo 106) was Alfa Romeo's six-cylinder flagship produced from 1961 to 1968. It was the successor to the Alfa 2000. It has become historically significant as the last Alfa Romeo to have been fitted with an inline six-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts. That had been the traditional Alfa Romeo engine configuration since the 1920s, but gave way to four-cylinder engines as the factory oriented its production towards more economical mass-produced car models starting in 1950. The 2600 was introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show as a sedan, a convertible (Spider) by Touring, and a coupé (Sprint) by Bertone. The limited edition 2600 SZ (Sprint Zagato) with fastback coupe bodywork by Zagato, and the very limited-edition 2600 De Luxe with five-window sedan bodywork by OSI (Officine Stampaggi Industriali) were introduced three years later in 1965 at Frankfurt motor Show. The Berlina, Spider and Sprint were based on the corresponding models in the 2000 range, and all three inherited the body styling of their predecessors with minor facelifts. The biggest change was the engine. The 2600 range was replaced at the top of the Alfa range by the 1750 models in 1968.
