Alfa Romeo 2000 (series 102) is a car produced by the Italian automobile manufacturing company Alfa Romeo as a successor to the 1900.

First shown in 1957 on the Turin autosalon, the car was produced in two models, the Berlina and the Spider since 1958. In 1960, the Sprint was added. The engine was an enlarged version of the 1900´s four-cylinder displacing 1975 cc. The cast-iron block and aluminum head engine using single downdraft Solex carburetor produced 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) at 5300 rpm in Berlina and the version used in Sprint and Spider produced 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) at 5900 rpm with two Solex sidedraft carburetors. The 2000 Berlina had gearbox operated via column-mounted shifter making space for three people in front. In Spider version the gearchange was located in floor and until 1961 it was pure two-seater when 2+2-seater came available.

The four-door Berlina was manufactured by Alfa Romeo itself, while the two others were designed and manufactured by the design companies Touring (Spider) and Bertone (Sprint).

Only 2,814 of the Berlina, 3,443 of the Spider and 704 of the Sprint were sold worldwide because of their high prices.

Between 1958 and 1961, Vignale built a series of coupés, penned by Giovanni Michelotti. All bore chassis type of 102.02, different from a serial cars. Around 15 cars were made.

The 2000 was replaced by the six-cylinder Alfa Romeo 2600, produced from 1961.
