Launched at the Geneva Salon 1962, it was the last Alfa Romeo to have an in-line 6-cylinder dohc engine. There was a factory designed 2600 Berlina, Coachbuilt bodies were also produced, including the 2600 Sprint (Giorgetto Giugiaro) built by Bertone, 2600 SZ by Zagato, and the 2600 Spider by Carrozzeria Touring. The 2600 was little more than an upgrade to the Alfa Romeo 2000 (1958-61), and the bodies were little changed apart from the substitution of the 1975cc 4-cylinder engine with the 2,584cc six.
