1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Touring (1964)

AUCTION

Report

Description

Introduced in 1962, the 106 Series 2600 range was a direct replacement for the 102 Series 2000 cars. The 102’s chassis design and body styles were retained, with minor revisions and improvements, but in place of the old, long-stroke, 2-litre, four-cylinder engine was a new, 2,584cc, twin-cam six clearly descended from 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, and 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 Touring-bodied Spider, a total of just 2,255 being produced between 1962 and 1965, and today this rare and hitherto under-appreciated model is becoming increasingly sought after by discerning Alfisti.
This delightful 2600 Spider has been in the present ownership some 12 years, having been purchased from Austria and taken to Athens it formed a part of the vendors major private collection. 193049 was subject to a restoration 25 years ago, the red coachwork still presents itself in good condition. The interior is still trimmed in its original black leather, and eludes a wonderful patina only found after the passage of time.

These delightful 2600 Alfa Romeos are becoming increasingly well recognised as one of the finest examples of Carrozzeria Touring Coachwork. Offered with a sensible reserve , do not miss this one.

Cette charmante 2600 a eu  le même propriétaire pendant plus de 12 ans, ayant été achetée en Autriche et amenée à Athènes. Châssis 193049 a fait l’objet d’une restauration il y a  25 ans, la carrosserie rouge se présente toujours en bon état. L’intérieur a gardé le cuir noir d’origine avec la magnifique patine du temps.

This vehicle is due to be auctioned at the Coys Legende et Passion sale in Monaco on 9th May 2014. Please call 020 8614 7888 for any enquiries.
