Alfa Romeo 155

The 155 replaced the 75 as the mid-range Alfa model for the 1990s. As a result of platform sharing with other models across the Fiat Group the new car was front-wheel-drive. The 155 was very successful in Touring Car racing, bringing a much needed sporting tint to the lineup. This racing success lead to a mid-life revamp, the "wide body" update bringing improved steering and handling under a subtly flared body.
