In 1962 Alfa Romeo introduced a new six cylinder coupe based on the new 2600 Saloon and Spider, the 2600 Sprint. The Sprint was a full four seater coupe with an attractive body design. A few were also bodied by Italian coachbuilder Zagato and were sold as the 2600 SZ.
Powering the new coupe was Alfa Romeo's new 2584cc, twin overhead cam, six cylinder unit. The 2.6 litre engine came with triple carburettors and produced over 145bhp. The model sold well (7,000 cars) and was eventually discontinued in 1966.
