Introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo 106-series was conceived as the Milanese manufacturer’s flagship range. Available in Berlina, Sprint and Spider guises, it was based on a reworked / elongated 102-series platform featuring all-round coil spring suspension and four-wheel disc brakes (though, some early cars had drums at the rear). Arguably the best-looking variant, the two-door Sprint coupe was styled by newly appointed Carrozzeria Bertone design chief, Giorgetto Giugiaro. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain and is restored.
