Help help please..what is it?

hi all,hope someone can help,i will keep it brief,just bought something called a 155 silverstone from a neighbour,its a 94,alfa red,black 12 spoke 16" alloys,spoiler on the boot which he reckons is adjustable,at some stage in its life its been covered in alfa graphics on the rear quarters cos you can just make out where they were.My point is that the silverstone i remember from about 96 was a bit of a basic affair with black bumpers and wheel trims,my neighbour seems to think its a bit special,is it?id love to know more about it as ive never seen one like this before,soory if i sound a tad ignorant,any help would be appreciated.

Hi Sean and welcome. If you post some pics of the car, that would help the 155 experts on here help you with the information you require.

Hi Sean, welcome to Alfaowner.

If your 155 looks like what you said, it's the Silverstone indeed. Marlon has the Silverstone. The front spoiler is also adjustable.

But post some pics...

Re: help please..what is it?

Hi Sean

You have the Silverstone model which was a limited run homologation model for the BTCC series...presume you know a 155 wno in 94

They were a basic spec 1.8 8v, but fitted with a front splitter and rear spoiler to allow Alfa Romeo to bend the rules a little There was also rumoured to be a boot spoiler jacking kit thrown in the boot...that's the adjustment for ya

Overall a very capable machine with a dependable 8v (timing chain) engine.

The 96 "silverstone" you're referring to I guess is the Sportpack model with black/grey wheels??? Nothing to do with your car

wrinx
