1960 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider 1/24 Scale Diecast Metal Car Model by Welly
The 1960 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider at 1/24 scale by Welly measures about 7.25 inches long by about 3 inches wide by about 2.25 inches high. It has very nice details such as separate clear plastic headlights, taillights, mirrors, grill, turn signals and even a wind shield wipers.
The coloring is done is high gloss finish with accurate markings and branding. The wheels are free rolling and made of rubber. The rolling motion is very smooth so be mindful of where you display it (or chuck the wheels). The doors can open revealing nice interior details such as accurate seats, steering wheel, and instrument panel. The hood can also open to show the engine.
This is a very realistic model, it comes in a window box.
The Alfa Romeo 2600 (Tipo 106) was Alfa Romeo´s six-cylinder flagship produced from 1961 to 1968. It was the successor to the Alfa Romeo 2000. It has become historically significant as the last Alfa Romeo to have been fitted with an inline six-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts. That had been the traditional Alfa Romeo engine configuration since the 1920s, but gave way to four-cylinder engines as the factory oriented its production towards more economical mass-produced car models starting in 1950.
