Its an Alfa, so it is beautiful....This 156 is a very special car, affectionately called "Alfie".
Alfie comes with a 3.2 GTA V6 engine fitted so he goes like a bar of soap down a freshly drained bath. And did somebody mention the noise... Ooh Behave, Alfie will tickle your eardrums with the metallic symphony of 6 large cylinders fighting over who can escape down the Ragazzon Sports exhaust first. The noise has no right to belong to a 4dr Saloon, more an Italian Supercar..
A true Alfa is a Red Alfa and Alfie is very RED. As red as a field full of poppies, he gleams and shines in the sun and has been treated to a full respray to freshen up the panels and make sure she is fighting fit for years to come so your children can experience the sound of a real car and not the buzzing nothingness of an electric machine with a name you will forget within seconds of hearing it.
Fitted with a jutting front spoiler finished in satin black, his darkened GTA headlights and his 18" Anthracite Alfa Blackline alloys, has there ever been more seductive lines to grace a 4dr saloon.
Everyone loves a bit of tan yes... This 156 interior could not be more Italian if it tried, The red exterior contrasts sharply with the Tan Momo leather trim of this 156 and yet it just works in only the way an Italian can carry it off. A british man wearing dark dress pants and white socks looks an idiot, an Italian man wearing the same ....looks cool.
Alfie is cooler than any 4 door car gone before him, with a Momo Prototipo 15" leather 3 spoke steering wheel, Red needles on the clocks, twin cowled instument cluster and plastics that seem to melt in the british sunshine he will remain cool and get cooler as time goes by.
Alfie`s steering is as quick as any of the latest modern cars and the press back when the 156 came out were full of praise by the pin sharp steering and super composed handling.
His performance is something else, reacting to the throttle is like standing on a cats tail, the response is instant and will suprise you just how ferocious it can be and will throw you back in your seat with a wall of torque that just keeps on coming.
The seats are comfortable and there is a huge sense of occasion when you drop behind the Momo Wheel.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 18" Alfa Blackline Alloys are in perfect condition and are wrapped in nearly new Goodyear Tyres with at least 6mm on each tyre. You never see an Italian with bad shoes.
