Alfa Romeo 2000
The successor of the 1900 came in 1958 and was called the 2000. Named for its displacement, the 2000 had a 1,975cc four compared to the 1900’s 1,884cc unit. As Alfa would also produce a more modern, all-aluminum 2.0-liter engine, the motor used in the 1958-1962 2000 cars is now referred to as the ‘cast-iron 2-liter’ or ‘old 2-liter.’ The former nickname referenced the engine’s cast-iron block, a design which it shared with the 1900. In addition to the upped displacement, the cast-iron 2-liter also featured a more modern valvetrain than the 1900. The three standard body styles—sedan, coupe, and convertible—were given the names Berlina, Sprint, and Spider, respectively.
Alfa Romeo 2600
The Alfa Romeo 2600 was introduced in March of 1962 at the Geneva Motorshow. This car was a deviation from the previous four-cylinder Alfa Romeos. The car was offered in a few bodystyles that included a Spyder, four-door Berlina, and a four-passenger two-door Sprint. The Sprint was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Carrozzeria Bertone. The Sprint series continued in production until 1966. Production of the 2600 continued until 1969. During its lifespan, 105 Sprint Zagatos, 54 De Luxe, 2,038 Berlina, 2,255 Spider, and 6,999 Sprint models were produced.
