Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo produced its 2600 model cars between the years of 1961 and 1968. It is historically significant because it was the last of their cars with a straight 6 engine. Later cars used 4 cylinders and were more built by assembly line than by independent coach builders.
The 2600 featured an all-alloy 2.6 liter engine with six inline cylinders in line and twin overhead camshafts. It had a 5-Speed manual transmission with rear wheel drive. It was introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show in 3 configurations: as a sedan with a factory-built body (2600 Berlina), a two-plus-two seater convertible with body by Carrozzeria Touring (2600 Spider), and a coupe with a body by Bertone (2600 Sprint.)
Later, a limited edition 2600 SZ (Sprint Zagato) was introduced as a fastback coupe, with bodywork by Zagato. At the 1965 Frankfurt Motor Show, a very limited run of the 2600 De Luxe with five-window sedan, with bodywork by OSI (Officine Stampaggi Industriali) was released.
The Berlina model produced displacement of 2,584 cc, had twin carburetors, and produced 130 bhp (97 kW, ) and had a top speed of 175 km/h (109 mph.) The fastest model was the Sprint Zagato, which was 2,584 cc, had triple carbs, produced 165 bhp (123 kW,) and had a top speed of 215 km/h (134 mph.)
The 2600 was not the most popular of the Alfa Romeo models. Its styling was not fully appreciated in the day, nor was the poor road handling. The total production for the Berlina was 2038 cars, the Sprint was 6999 cars, the Spider was 2255 cars, the 2600 De Luxe was 54 cars and the Sprint Zagato was 105 cars. 2600 SZ cars are the most rare, with only 105 produced and can fetch very respectable prices at car auctions.
