Very nice 1962 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint, designed by Bertone. An early example of these fine cars, built with many handmade parts. Valid Norwegian MOT until October 2018
and registration for historic vehicles.

The car is completly restored, finished in beautiful bordeaux with newly rebuilt engine, upgraded with three Dellorto carbs.

The body is rust-free, the engine runs very nicely, clutch, gearbox, brakes, hydralics, etc all rebuilt.

The all leather interior is restored and the chromework is remade.
Speedo & rev meeter rebuilt with new cables.


The Alfa Romeo 2600 (Tipo 106) was Alfa Romeo's six-cylinder flagship produced in just 7000 examples from 1962 to 1968.
As the successor to the Alfa 102 series it was the first launched design by Giorgetto Giugiaro. It has become historically significant as the last Alfa Romeo
fitted with an inline six-cylinder engine. The inline six was the traditional Alfa Romeo engine configuration since the 1920s,
but gave way to four-cylinder engines as the factory oriented its production towards more economical mass-produced models starting in the fifties.
The sucsessor, the 105 series Giulia is a downscaled version of this car.

The 2600 was introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show as a Berlina, a Spider (by Touring), and a coupé (Sprint) by Bertone.
The limited edition 2600 SZ (Sprint Zagato) and the very limited-edition 2600 De Luxe with five-window sedan bodywork by OSI (Officine Stampaggi Industriali)
were introduced in 1965 at Frankfurt motor Show. The Berlina, Spider and Sprint were based on the corresponding models in the 2000 range (102),
and all three inherited the body styling of their predecessors with minor facelifts. The 2600 range was replaced at the top of the Alfa range by the 1750 models in 1968.

That is a fantastic car. Love he fact you manage to get 2600 as registration number in a country where private registration does not really exist... I managed to get 007 on my Esprit when I lived in Norway...

Hi Friedel

There is actually some (limitied) freedom of choice of reg# for vintage cars. This # was still free.

Thanks

What a beautiful example, and especially nice to see one that is new to the market.
A bit of design trivia; this was the first car to go into mass production designed by a very young man named Giorgio Giugiaro.

Are photos of the interior and engine, and underside available? Does the steering box give any 'knocks' when turning it? Where in Norway is this beauty located?

In case anyone is even remotely tempted, I suggest not missing this opportunity. The rise in values the past 5 years has brought more to the market than in the previous 10 years combined. The Dellorto conversion is an excellent upgrade too.

I almost don't even want to point out how reasonable the asking price for this one is. This is only about US$33,000. There are examples out there asking for double. And examples needing full restoration are around $10-12,000.

If the seller can hold it for me, I'll be arriving OSL at 10:00am on Tuesday July 25th. I will cancel my Hertz rental, hand over a suitcase of cash, and blissfully drive my kids and myself in this gorgeous machine 14 hours to Brønnøysund for this year's family vacation....

I sincerely wish I had the capacity to buy this. It fits my needs on so many levels, and it's already in Norway, no need to import it. I must think very hard.

PS - Do the fantastic alloy rims come with the sale as well as the original steelies?

Well..... minor point, but it was the type 102 Sprint that was Giugiaro's first work for Bertone. But I understand the confusion.

Takk for bildene, og Hurra for 17ende Mai, sier jeg da.
Den ser jo helt fenomenal ut, og his du attpåtil kjører den så godt som bildene tilsier, er det bare et stort pluss. Slike biler lider enormt av å bare stå i en garasje. Huffameg, den er fristende. Har bilen en "kjent" eier-historie, når den kom til Norge, osv?

Thanks for the pictures,
It looks phenomenal, and if you drive it as well as the photos would indicate, that's just a plus. These do best when driven regularly and not just left in a garage.. Very tempting. Does it have a 'known' owner-history from its importation to Norway, etc?

Takk, thank you,

A beauty. Thought abut buying one of these many years ago when they were pretty affordable, relatively speaking. Ended up with it's baby brother, a Giulia Sprint GT. Almost glad it's not here to drool over.
