At that time the 2600 Sprint had a well known Alfa look. It even looks a little stern, even though it is in fact a coupé. Indeed, it's a very comfortable one, with enough room for four passengers. This by the way, was one of the first projects by Giorgetto Giugiaro in the services of Bertone.

The front resembled the later saloons, e.g., the 1750 or the 2000. However, those who find the look too straight forward, should take a look at the respective saloon. Alfa built it themselves and the concept was probably theirs as well. In comparison, the Sprint was downright elegant. This is one of the rare cases, where the coupé was a much better seller than the saloon.

The Spider from Touring below, which came along a touch more flamboyant, also appeared to be successful. The heart of the 2600 series was the engine, which was not only given two cylinders more than the well known four-cylinder. Aluminium was used for the engine-block, which, at the same time, pointed to the problem-zone of this car, it was 'front-heavy'. This was made obvious when driving by the oversteering.

The last straight-six-cylinder DOHC from Alfa

The nowadays difficult to come by tyres and the slightly heavier steering of the 2000 predecessor models, don't really help the Sprint, it doesn't feel at home on winding stretches, its field are the straight roads. This is where the car is happy, where it can confidently produces both acceleration and top-speed. The gear-changing is relatively light despite the long travel between the individual gear-positions and produces a pleasing sound level, even at higher speeds. Even the braking was praised, although the first cars in the series still had drum-brakes at the rear. 01/15               Top of page               Index
