1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider
Coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring

Chassis no. AR 193019
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. The latter's chassis design and body styles were retained, with minor revisions and improvements, but in place of the old, long-stroke, 2.0-litre four 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 2,255 being produced between 1962 and 1965. Today this rare and hitherto under-appreciated model is becoming increasingly sought after by discerning Alfisti.

This Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider was imported from the USA to the Netherlands in 1995 and registered there in October of that year. The current owner purchased the Alfa in 2005 and the car moved to Vienna (bill of sale on file). Completely restored in 2012, the car is finished in red with black leather interior and matching soft-top, and comes with restoration invoices totalling €12,886. Additional accompanying documentation consists of a Texas Certificate of Title, old Netherlands registration papers, two condition reports (1997 and 2005), sundry maintenance invoices and current Austrian registration papers. The provision of power assisted steering is the only notified deviation from factory specification. 


No reserve.
