Wow! Wow! Wow! This is what makes us Alfisti go beserk over Alfas! It boggles my mind as to how any person cannot appreciate an Alfa.. At least the sheer beauty of its design.

155 - British AND German Touring car Champion! Destroyed the mercs, BMs, opels etc on the track.
That thing was a beast :eek: : "The 1996 version had a 2.5 L 90° V6 engine delivering 490 PS (360 kW; 480 hp) at 11,900 rpm, had a top speed of around 300 kilometers per hour (190 mph) and weighed 1,060 kilograms (2,300 lb)."

That is the same weight I have on my 156 racer, but 1/3 of the power, no 4wd and not 1/4 the aerodynamic trickery :cry:

Wow! What amazing stats! I didn't know this. Credit must go to Italian driver Nannini and his Italian team mate. Around corners, the 155 was on 3 wheels.! I sat glued to the tv watching the race. I wonder where these beasts are now? Sold or in the Alfa musuem?

Seems the appear at Hill Climbs etc. as I seem to remember them featuring in a Youtube video called "Alfa Porn". Not sure but would assume they are privately owned, unless Alfa does these as exhibitions?

Yes they have one at the automobile museum in Italy:
Museo dell'automobile - ALFA ROMEO mod. 155 V6 TI
They made these cars jump kerbs:

Thanks for those amazing links, Gertie. I wonder how many 155s exist in SA. I recall the special ed had red paintwork and black wheels. Sometimes see a pristine white example in Durban.
