THE ALFA ROMEO 2600 SPIDER

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.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to Alfa Romeo's Centro Documentazione, this Touring bodied 2600 Spider was completed at the Alfa Romeo plant in January, 1963, and delivered to its first owner trough Hoffman Motor Car Company, New York, USA in February that same year. The car was finished in a Grigio Biacca grey exterior color. The cars early history remains unknown, but the car is believed to have spent much time in the Southern California climate. The car was purchased a few years ago from a family in Riverside County, CA, for a collector in Florida, who later sold the car to the consignor.

Today this smart Touring Spider presents beautifully inside and out. Finished in classic red over a black interior, the Alfa Romeo would be a great car for tours or rallies, such as the Copperstate 1000. With splendid 6-cylinder power, the car should keep up with modern day traffic. A wonderful Italian Spider, that should offer the next owner much enjoyment.
