Alfa Romeo 2000/2600 Spider
Although there’s a strong family resemblance to the Giulietta, the six-cylinder 2000/2600 harks back to the previous-generation Alfa Romeo 1900. The elegant styling was by Touring and reflected its role as the grand tourer that sat at the top of the range – and its high price was justified by its 2+2 seating layout, detachable hardtop and five-speed gearbox. Performance was seriously improved with the arrival of the 2.6-litre version in 1962, with top speed now a impressive 125mph. Rare and expensive, too, but still desirable.
