1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint Zagato Coupé
Coachwork by Carrozzeria Zagato

Chassis no. 10612AR856015
Introduced in 1962, the 106-Series '2600' range was a direct replacement for the preceding 102-Series '2000' cars. Carrozzeria Touring and Bertone were responsible for the 2600 Spider and Sprint Coupé respectively, both of which looked like their 2000 predecessors, whose chassis design and body styles were retained albeit with minor revisions and improvements. At the same time a relative handful of '2600' chassis were bodied as coupés by OSI and Zagato to their own designs. Of striking appearance, the Sprint Zagato version's body was constructed entirely from steel, yet the car was approximately 136kg lighter than the standard 2600 Sprint, resulting in superior acceleration and lighter steering.

In place of the '2000' series old, long-stroke, 2.0-litre four there was a new, 2,584cc, twin-cam six-cylinder engine clearly descended from that of the immensely successful Giulietta. A maximum output of 145bhp was claimed for this unit when installed in the Sprint Coupé and Spider, good enough for a top speed of around 125mph. Cars Illustrated magazine reckoned this magnificent power unit 'one of the smoothest, quietest running sixes, irrespective of the speed at which it is running, in our experience.' Rarest of these two high-performance variants was the Spider, a total of only 2,155 being produced between 1962 and 1965, while the Sprint Zagato, with only 105 built, was even more exclusive. Today this rare and hitherto under-appreciated model is becoming increasingly sought after by discerning Alfisti.

Finished in white with black leather interior, this un-restored Sprint Zagato is described as in generally very good condition, though we are advised that there is a slight leak from the water pump. The original instruction manual and a sales catalogue come with the car.

D'un modèle rare (105 unités construites) et recherché, cette Alfa Romeo 2600 Coupé Sprint Zagato peinte en blanc avec intérieur en cuir noir et non restaurée est présentée comme étant en très bon état général à l'exception d'une légère fuite à la pompe à eau. La voiture est accompagnée de son manuel d'utilisation et d'un catalogue commercial.
